I am in my third-tri of pregnancy and am tired during the day and wide awake at night. why??
I am in my third-tri of pregnancy and I am always tired during the day, I have been taking a 1 hour long nap almost every day and now I am thinking of adding a second nap! Some days I wake up at 6:00 a.m. and other days I don't get up till 9:30 a.m.but I am tired during the day no matter when I wake up. I also CANNOT get to sleep at night, I am up till midnight or later because of heartburn and the baby moving around. If anyone has any tips, ideas, or answers for me I would really appreciate it
You are tired all day because you are carrying around a 6 to 8 pound baby and it's exhausting. You seem to know why you are not sleeping at night - heartburn and the baby moving. If you can eliminate what you eat that is causing the heartburn, it will help. I used to tuck my tummy into the small of my husband's back to settle the baby so we could all sleep. Best of luck with your delivery. There are many things worse than having a baby. Hope it goes well for you. (Then you will really be tired all day and up all night! But they grow up fast!)
Madison, let me ask you first: does your doctor have you on any medications? I know seizure meds complicate sleep patterns during pregnancy.
If you are not on a prescription, I think your body is just under the influence of the baby's rhythms, and this will not change for some time. It can be frustrating, but it is a fact of life One thing that did help me when I had this problem -didn't completely end it, but did lessen the heartburn and helped me to sleep at least more- was to eat turkey or turkey broth. Don't overly season it; as bland as you can tolerate the better. And take a little bread or a few crackers at the same time.
I wish you much, much luck hon and do take care of yourself
You're tired because you're body building 24/7. It takes energy to create another person!
I had heartburn issues and interrupted sleep. The heartburn didn't resolve until the moment babe arrived, and the interrupted sleep carried on for some time.
Looking back, it was only a small percentage of my life, and so, so worth it. Try to accept that things do change with pregnancy. Go with the flow.
Use relaxation CDs to have some kind of rest, take any help offered, and remember that some day soon, this will be history. Take care!
