If I keep an eye on my diet, and eat mostly whole, healthy foods, along with keeping up with my iron (and other vitamins) it's pretty manageable.

There are times when I am just done. My kids nap daily from 1-2pm until 4pm. Naps aren't optional. So if I am really dragging for a day, I will lay down and rest while they are napping, rather than cleaning (which is what I usually do).

Dehydration can also make you feel unusually tired.

Exhaustion is a normal symptom of pregnancy. But if you're exhausted more often than not, it may be worth looking into your diet, your habits, and your vitamin levels.
Thanks for the info and concern! I had low iron with mg first child so its possible! I have my 12wk appt today...ill ask them to check it. I also drink a ton of water.its not a daily thing..mostly when I have to wake up a million times to use the bathroom haha
