Taking your iron supplements is very important, especially if you don't want to be reduced to this:
Turning into a sleeping cat pillow. Lately I feel like all I've been doing is sleeping. The main culprit, I suspect, is the fact that I'd stopped taking my iron pills because they were making me constipated (too much info, I know). Since then I've come to the rude awakening that baby is not only an invader, at this point in time he's also a huge energy leech and I need that extra iron in my diet. I can't rely on only getting it from my daily intake of food.
In fact, at one point last week I was taking 3 naps (at least an hour long each) a day, while also sleeping 10 to 11 hours a night. This is unheard of for me. Now that I'm back on my iron pills;, I'm back down to one nap a day and an 8 hour sleep. I also no longer feel like a comatose zombie, which is a huge plus in my books!
Of course this also means I no longer have any excuse for getting cleaning done before baby arrives. There always has to be a down side to things....
