I'm now requiring a nap to be able to function, and I've gone to bed before 8pm twice in the last week.
Isn't exhaustion supposed to be a first trimester thing?
I'm actually having the opposite issue. I'm tired like physically just because it's hard to get up and down and I get winded when walking, but I'm not sleepy tired. I'm actually having issues with insomnia, but I had that pre-pregnancy as well.
Exhaustion happens to most pregnant women regardless of how many weeks they're pregnant. The best thing you need to is to have enough rest. Sleep early and have a good amount of sleep so you will gain extra strength the next day.

I had completely forgotten about anemia being a possible cause of exhaustion.. My blood count was borderline low in my 27w labs, so that may have been a culprit. Beef up on your iron, ladies! (no pun intended!)
