Sooooooo tired....

It's driving me crazy! I get up in the morning, eat breakfast, putter around the house for a couple hours...by 11am I am exhausted! By 1pm, I end up parking on the floor or the couch.

I was having problems feeling winded and dizzy a week ago, talked to MW and she ordered me to increase my iron intake...I've been eating a lot of iron-rich foods in addition to my prenatals and have also increased my Vitamin C intake to help with the iron absorbtion. I'm definitely feeling better than a week ago...but I feel like my "get up and go" has gotten up and LEFT!

I'm normally a very energetic person...always have a lot on the go...even if I was sitting I would be crocheting or something, kwim? Now I just sit and lay around like a lump...talk and play with the boys...but that's it.

Any suggestions for improving energy levels while pregnant? Or should I just accept the fact that with a multiple pregnancy I need more rest?
