I'm 32 and 18wks and expecting my second child. My first is 12yrs old. I feel so drained and wiped out and constantly want to sleep.
I don't remember my first pregnancy being like this though I had severe morning sickness 12hrs a day from 2mths-after labour I still had loads of energy.
I'm worrying this could be early signs of gestation diabetes. My first I went from a size 6- size 18. This time though only 18wks I've only put on 3kg so far. I work in two different pubs 6 days a week doing 13hr shifts 3 days in a row in one and 6hr shifts 3 days in a row with one day off. I know this cld be the stem of my exhaustion but need to work till I'm 25wks to be entitled to my maternity pay.
Please advice. Is this drained and wiped out feeling normal?
