How do you deal with nausea and fatigue during your pregancies? I am 9 wks. along and need a nap at least twice a day…and the nausea robs me of motivation to work on other things (which is unlike me).

I’ve never had very bad morning sickness with any of my pregnancies — just a slight queasiness in the pit of my stomach that lasts most of the day but seldom makes me throw up — but I do usually battle tremendous fatigue, where I can barely keep my eyes open in the early afternoon. It is especially difficult to read to the kids or drive a car for more than 15-20 minutes at a time.
I’m happy to say I did not experience either of those symptoms during my 11th pregnancy. I happened to be taking Tummy Tuneup and SuperMom vitamins when I got pregnant and continued that regimen throughout.
I didn’t really make a connection between those supplements and my lack of nausea/fatigue until I read testimonials toward the end of my 2nd trimester from other moms who had noticed the same effect during their pregnancies. You might give these supplements a try and see if they help you, too.
