If you are anything like me, your biggest symptom of pregnancy (especially after the morning sickness subsides) is exhaustion! Whether it is your first pregnancy or your tenth, we all have stuff to get done, and it is so frustrating to feel like you are trudging through mud all day long! This is my fourth pregnancy, and so far it has been my most difficult, as far as the lack of energy goes. As much as sometimes I wish I could sit around and watch netflix for nine straight months, I am grateful for my job and my other three munchkins that keep me busy. Early on this time around I knew I needed to figure out this energy thing so I wasn’t a giant hot mess this entire pregnancy! Obviously everyone is different, each body, each pregnancy, each life stage, but I found some things that have really helped me to maximize my energy so far this pregnancy and I wanted to share them with all of you!

3.) Sleep. I am not a napper. I take too long to fall asleep and then feel groggy and gross after I wake up, so naps are not a great option for me, but I have found when I am pregnant I need to sleep a little longer at night in order to have energy to get through the days. Making the effort to get to bed a little earlier each night has really paid off for me when it comes to the way I feel the next day! If you are a napper, then make use of the time you have to sneak one in! Sleep is so important and getting proper rest will help fuel you during the day when you have to be up and moving.
Good luck with your pregnancies, and with those sweet babies afterward! Here’s to a little more energy for all of us!
