Weeks when I’m not too tired/its not too hot and can actually go for a 20-30 min walk (as many days as I can) I notice a spike in my energy. You can try that and also cutting back a little on what you do around the house since your body is already working up a storm on its own. I’ve had to start going to bed earlier and sometimes getting a nap in too. Good luck!!

Can you take a 45 minute nap?

Even a 15 minutes shut eye where you just rest your eyes and relax your body will help. I became a pro at this when DS was an infant since I couldn’t “sleep” lol

Try doing that… it’s a GREAT refresher and has helped even more than a full nap sometimes (which can also leave you groggy)

this doesn’t help you right this second, but going to prenatal yoga once a week in my 2nd and 3rd trimesters really helped my energy level. i was definitely exhausted in my 3rd tri, but yoga helped me be less stiff and achy and get better sleep (aside from the 895373 trips to the bathroom!)

I wish there was something that I could do/take to help with energy.  I’m due on Friday and it’s so tough to work full-time right now!  I admire the women that seem to do it effortlessly.  I wish someone would just let me take a couple quick naps throughout the day, ha! 

I do think, if you can remain active it’ll help.  I’ve had terrible pains from my waste down so I pretty mucy stopped all exercise and activity which is probably making it worse.  And of course, your diet definitely does impact energy.
