When will I get energy again

Pregnant with #2 and literally have no energy, I feel lifeless. Didn't feel like this with my first. I'm in week 9, will it ever change? :'(

I'm very much the same! I have to nap every afternoon or I feel like I cant get through the day. Being tired also makes my nausea worse. I have low iron, could this be the case for you?

I'm 9 weeks as well. Pregnant with my third. I'm in the same boat, it'll get better. Keep up with your prenatals!

I'm having the same issue. But I'm now 14 weeks. Still have to take a nap or two to make it through the day. But I feel a slight increase in my energy. Usually somewhere in the second trimester everything levels out and you feel better. Just hang in there.

I'm 27wks with my second. I have a very active 10 month old son so, when I want to nap he may not. But I do nap when he does. I have been extremely fatigued this pregnancy unable to work, unlike with my son I worked the same week I gave birth. So sorry I wish I could say it will go away soon, but I am not sure being I'm in my third trimester still dealing with extreme fatigue... And yes I do get breaks/help with my son. Congrats on baby, I pray that everything works out for you and you have a safe, quick, and healthy delivery! May God bless you!!!

I'm 25 weeks with my second baby. My son is 18 months old and very active. The first trimester is extremely exhausting and I wondered how I was going to last 9 months being so tired and taking care of my toddler.  It does get easier I promise. There are days where I'm more tired then usual but it will get easier. Really do try to nap any chance you get though it helps a ton. Hang in there mama!
