I'm so tired!!!

I'm pregnant with #3. We have a 2-1/2 year old DD and a 9 month old DS. I literally get up at 8:30-9am and need a nap by 2...I'm literally collapsing from exhaustion! It's ridiculous!!! I take a nap and feel like going to bed by like 7 although I have to stay up a bit later. I struggle all day with exhaustion. Has anyone ever been through this. I literally feel as though I can't get anything done and I was never this tired with DD or DS. I do not have morning sickness although my stomach looks like it is getting bigger already. I think I am about 8-9 weeks, but I'm not sure. What I am sure about is that I am already feeling this baby moving!!!

PS...my neighbor had a dream about a month or so back that I had b/g twins. At the time we didn't know I was pregnant. She totally predicted I was going to get pregnant!!! I go in Friday for an ultrasound to date my pregnancy and I'm so nervous!!!

Re: I'm so tired!!!

Oh ya...Absolutely....I'm on my 4th but when I was pregnant with my first I used to take the 2 older ones in their room and fall asleep in front of the door so they couldn't escape...Right now I'm desperate for a nap by noon if I've had a cup of coffee...if not I get up at 8 and am exhausted by 11...It's worst in the first trimester...Hang in there you'll figure a way to get your zzzz until it blows over...

You and I are in the EXACT same boat!! My ODS was born in 1/08, YDS in 12/09 and I am recently pregnant with #3! I too am ALLLLLWAYS tired. I WOH so naps aren't an option, but even if I get plenty of sleep I am worn out!!!

b/g twins would be fun!! (which is totally what I'm hoping for )

Re: I'm so tired!!!

Very very common for the first trimester and I feel like this symptom has gotten worse with each pregnancy but of course, with each pregnancy, we mamas are juggling more and more so it kinda makes sense . Also, request to have your iron levels checked, even if you have never been anemic in the past. When I am over the top worn out, this is often a sure sign for me. Watch your nutrition as well, this often makes a big difference for me.

My first tri was exactly the same. By mid-morning I *had* to sit down for 15-20 or I was convinced that I was going to fall over from exhaustion. Doing much better now that it's second tri so just hang in there!

Yep. This is pregnancy was the worst for that so far for me. Luckily after the first trimester I've felt much better.

Re: I'm so tired!!!

I just can't keep my eyes open! I'm shocked because this isn't normal for me. I'm normally able to keep the house in really good shape and work on a million projects at once. Now I'm lucky if I get the basic daily stuff done! I really hope this tiredness ends soon! I also think it is because it's getting really cold here.
