Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your pregnancy with tips on exercise, eating the right foods so that both you and your baby get the right nutrition throughout the pregnancy, and regular check ups like ultrasounds and pre-natal examinations to monitor your baby’s development.
It is usual to feel more tired through a 2nd or subsequent pregnancy, as you are running around after an extra child now, which you weren't doing with your first pregnancy. See your doctor if you are concerned, as, like the other lady said, you may be lacking in iron. A blood test can confirm this. Congratulations on your pregnancy, and I hope everything goes well for you.

I can relate to what you are saying. I have a 13 month old daughter who is walking and has just started running ( much to her pregnant mummy's delight) I am 13 weeks pregnant and found the first 12 weeks in particular to be very tiring. I found that going to bed that little bit earlier plus eating well and drinking lots of water helped a bit. If you are concerned get a blood test to check your iron levels, but you will probably feel a little better in the second trimester when your body gets a bit more settled. Making a baby is hard work, relax and enjoy it.
