Thread: Soooo Tired! What helps?

    Default Soooo Tired! What helps?

    HI Girls

    I have been back at work for a week, and I am exhuasted. I am so tired it is ridiculous! I can't drink coffee so I am having a Berrocca instead, this doesn't seem to help that much. Does anyone have any fantastic sure fire (safe) remedy they could recommend!

    Also, does anyone know how long the "tiredness" last for?

    Thanks,

    Lol sleep!



    Sorry, just being a smarta$$...

    I actually found having lightly steamed veges at lunch helped so much... a real pick me up. It has helped the morning sickness too... if I am sick Shel cooks me veges lol. Last night it was all I ate for dinner...

    I also go to bed at 8.30 (though usually its because I've crashed!) which helps the next day. If you have to get up early, go to bed early the night before.

    A little nanna nap when you get home in the afternoon does wonders too.

    A short walk helped a little for me (some fresh air and excercise) but really the only sure fire cure was an afternoon nap. By about 4 months my energy returned but by 8 months I was getting pretty tired again (mostly becasue sleeping at nights was so difficult).

    trying to keep your diet ok also (which i can never do and I'm sure that's why I suffer) I'm sure also helps

    I was exhausted the first few months of my pregnancy. I found that short naps, around 20 minutes were really helpful- but no longer than that, it could actually make you groggier. Maybe some fresh fruit and a cup of tea. When I hit three months it was like a magical switch had been flipped and I all of a sudden had all kinds of extra energy.

    Steph - I'm the same anything more than half an hour sleep wise and I feel really bad for a good couple of hours so I really have to train myself that once my eyes open for that first time not to let them close again or I will pay for it for the rest of the day.

    The tiredness came and went for me (still is) I'm sure you are already doing it but a good multi vitamin can help. Other than that I can only suggest early nights and taking naps whenever you can get them.

    Thanks Girls for all your advice. I think I will try and eat more fruit and vegies and see if that helps too.

    Take care
