No energy 22 weeks pregnant

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and constantly tired. I'm having my vitamins and I'm not anemic so it's frustrating feeling like this as I've been told in the 2nd trimester you are meant to feel your energy come back. Has anyone experienced this?

Hi and yes. I will be 23 weeks on Tuesday. I had very little energy the first 2 or so months. I got a lot of it back and now its going away again. You also have to look at what you do on a daily basis. I am an Assistant Manager at Panera and I am ALWAYS on the move so when I come home, I want to do nothing most of the time.  On days that you don't do much, you will still be tired bc your body is recovering from the day before. Try to get as much rest as you can. You will need more sleep then you think. All of it is normal. Hope this helps and good luck.

I am right there with ya! I was so excited to enter the second trimester hoping my energy came back but nope. Its extremely frustrating, I've broken down about it a couple times already. I'm only 15 weeks so I have a long way to go. Hope all gets better with you, good luck!
