I am in college and 9wks pregnant. Studying has become a bit of a challenge. I lay down to take a break and set my alarm to give me a 30min-1hr nap. That nap has constantly turned into 3hr naps or more making me miss much homework/studying time. How does everyone else deal with fatigue? My nap idea isn't working. How about energy foods? What has worked for you?
I'm in college to maybe we can use this forum to talk about our pregnancy while in school. I have add and hope concentration doesn't get worse. Good luck ladies. Oh I find strawberries sharpen my mind.
I work 5 8-hour days, and the fatigue by my Thursday is awful!! I totally understand. Don't forget, you can have up to 200mg of caffeine. Soda bottles label how much is in the bottle near the daily values chart. Also, you can look online for your specific brand of tea/coffee to find out how much you can drink. I have a really hard time exersicing because of other medical issues, so I try to eat more fruits, Also, if you are really tired and need a quick boost, ice water is a really good jolt for you body. I always try and keep some mints on hand which can also jolt you awake, if only for a little bit. Hope that helps a little.
