I only recently found this board and haven’t really posted anywhere yet, but I’m due at the end of August (27th) with my first.
This pregnancy has gone very smoothly for me—no real morning sickness or aches-and-pains. But in the last two weeks I’ve found myself utterly, completely bone-tired all of the time. I sleep in as late as I can, take a nap for an hour as soon as I get home from work, make dinner, take another nap, wake up to maybe drink some water and talk to hubby. Then back to bed for the night. I can’t get anything done and don’t have the energy for the cleaning and cooking I know I should be doing.
Is this just one of those late pregnancy things I have to deal with? Or does anyone have some thoughts on what I might try in terms of nutrition/herbs? I follow a high-protein, fairly-low-carb diet with lots of veg/fruits. I’ve increased my milk intake during the last week after some issues with leg cramps at night. Alongside my pre-natal vitamin, I take omega-3 oils, drink chlorophyll, rrl and nettle tea.
