I don`t remember ever being this tired before, what can I do?

This is my 3rd pregnancy, i`m nearly 12 weeks and am so very very tired. i don`t remember ever being this tired before.i`m 31 yo but usually have no problems in doing my normal activities. i feel like i`m much more tired than i should be. there is so much i want to do but just don`t have the energy. most days i wake up tired and can`t wait to go back to bed, i`ll take a nap if possible but isn`t always. if i don`t take a nap i`m so tired. can you please advise. thank you

Answer: Hi, Your tiredness may be caused by a low iron level. Check your blood results and if you are low in iron you may need to take a supplement. Otherwise it just may be from coping with older children and early pregnancy. If you have a family history of twins this may also want to be checked. Best wishes, Alex
