Ridiculously tired?

I'm 15 weeks and it doesn't matter how much I sleep or don't sleep or what schedule I'm on, I can't stay awake for more than 5 hours at a time. I can barely drive because I get so tired. What can I do? I take my prenatals and drink plenty of water and eat as healthy as I can. Everyone said it gets better the second trimester but it seems even worse. I'm hardly ever nauseous haven't even thrown up once. I don't get it how can I be this tired? Can barely work because I can't stay up long enough or find enough energy to focus.

I felt the same way in the first trimester. It for better for about 2 weeks after I got into the second trimester, but I'm back to being tired all the time too. Unfortunately, I don't think there's much that can be done about it. Sad face. I hope it gets better for you though.
