How to handle pregnancy fatigue

Suggested ad (Premama)

Almost all pregnant women are affected by fatigue at one point or another. As your body changes and your baby grows, you might find yourself to be sleepier, a little more tired than usual, or just generally kind of exhausted. It’s a strange feeling because the cause of your symptoms can be rather vague, but there are ways to combat fatigue during pregnancy.

Lean on others for support

In addition to being a great way to handle pregnancy fatigue, this is also great practice for after your baby arrives! It will be so helpful to get into the habit of asking for help and accepting help when it’s offered. This is true for labor-intensive tasks or things that aren’t safe for you when you’re pregnant, but it’s also true for things that just sap your extra energy. Sure, you can do the dishes with no problem, but it’s a good idea to let someone else take that on so you can rest. Lie down on the couch, take a nap, or just sit down for a little while. Your body will thank you.

Keep a regular schedule

It’s easier said than done, but keeping a regular schedule for when you go to sleep and when you wake up can have a major impact on your levels of tiredness throughout the day. Everyone needs a different amount of sleep to feel fully rested, but you should probably shoot for around eight hours a night. If you have trouble getting to sleep, consider using the Premama Prenatal Sleep Aid Soft Chew. It’s a chocolate-flavored chew that provides natural, pregnancy-safe sleep support without the use of melatonin. It has magnesium and vitamin D to promote restful sleep, and it includes potassium to alleviate muscle discomfort that often disrupts sleep during pregnancy. It’s also vegetarian, gluten-free, and non-GMO!

Modify your diet

Making small changes to your diet can make you feel less tired overall, especially during pregnancy. Your body need extra nutrients to help your baby grow, and you want to make sure you’re getting enough for you and your little one. In addition to your prenatal vitamin, take care to make sure you’re getting plenty of protein, fiber, and iron in your diet. Eating less sugar and fewer processed foods can also improve your energy levels because you won’t find yourself crashing after a sugar high.

Find energy boosts

When there’s no time to rest, sometimes you just have to create energy out of thin air. Exercising can increase energy levels and help fight fatigue. Even a short walk can help wake your whole body up! You can also use natural energy boosters like the Premama Prenatal Energy Drink Mix. It’s a pregnancy-safe formula with fiber to curb fatigue, Omega-3s to boost mood and cognition, and B vitamins to soothe morning sickness. It’s totally caffeine-free, and it has a tasty watermelon flavor you can mix into any drink.
