feeling funky

about 17 weeks....i'm so so tired. like beyond what is normal for me, achy and a bit dizzy. like all i can manage is to lay on the couch.

think i've just been overdoing it? or what? maybe need to drink more water or something?

i just feel plain bad.

I'd drink some water, lay down and rest. Might be overdoing it or dehydrated. If you don't feel better after that calm ur OB/midwife.

I'd take some time and relax too. Have you had your BP checked recently? I have had low BP with this pregnancy and last pregnancy and the tired, dizzy thing is something I definitely experience a lot of.

It's also possible you could be coming down with a virus...I guess only if you've been having those symptoms just the last few days.

Re: feeling funky

Yeah, I'm at about the same time and I'm tired and dizzy too. Last time was the same. I drink water constantly, all day and all night so I don't think it's necessarily dehydration - but it NEVER hurts to drink more water, so go for it! I try to move slowly, do less, and avoid changing position rapidly.

Re: feeling funky

I would try drinking more water because it could help and definitely won't hurt. Also, have you had your iron checked lately as you could be a bit anemic?
