Pregnancy and fatigue: tired all the time

Tiredness was a pregnancy symptom for me in my first trimester. It always got better and I had more energy up until the last few weeks.

In my last pregnancy it wasn't getting better, I was just tired all the time and when my midwife checked my iron levels they were low. So I had to get my iron up, but I struggled with it for the rest of my pregnancy. I worked on getting my iron up after our son was born for several months.

Your doctor will be able to help you determine if your tiredness is more than your normal pregnancy tiredness.
