Am I just a whiny baby? But I am 10 weeks and I still feel exhausted. i get up for work at 6 get home at about 6pm and sleep literally for about 1 hour until bedtime at which time i sleep straight till 5 or 6. my husband says i need to do more physical activity and maybe i do but i am so tired. anybody still tired or am i just lazy
Anybody else still exhausted?
Add me to the Exhausted Mama Club. If I don't get at least 9 hours of sleep a night, I'm dragging the next day. Thankfully, DH has been super-wonderful (this guy deserves an award, seriously), and he takes care of DS in the morning so I can sleep in. He's also extremely tolerant of my slothful ways. I get tired very easily, it seems, and if we do any kind of yard work or have an outing, I'm exhausted.
I'm exhausted, too. I'm 14 weeks and still have to take a nap when my daughter naps. I usually take longer to fall asleep, so when she wakes up I'm still so tired I can barely breathe. At least with a toddler I can't give into the laziness, like I did when I was pregnant with her. I think being more active does help a bit, until you hit the wall. :/
Not just exhausted, but utterly lacking in energy. I'm not sure how much is pregnancy related & how much is related to needing a higher dose of thyroid meds, though. I only started on them right around when I got pregnant.
Of course, it would help if ds3 didn't decide to wake me up for 2 hours after I'd only had 5 hours sleep. And then I maybe got another hour after that.
My tiredness got a little better at 11 weeks, but I still can't make it past 9pm without passing out, and even the slightest uphill walk tuckers me out. I've also noticed that if I'm eating well (balanced, healthy) I have more energy, while empty carbs really kill me (and make me nauseous). Perhaps taking a look at your diet might help boost your energy? Little meals throughout the day rather than three large ones have helped me a lot... Hope you feel better soon!
I'm also completely wiped out. My midwife has me on Hemaplex and Alfalfa, and that has helped some, but I'm not only exhausted, but if I overdo it one day (and overdoing it is what I would have considered a lightly active day, pre-pregnancy), I wake up in the morning feeling like I have been hit by a truck.
My DS (3) fights his nap (and he SO needs it) unless DH or I lay down with him, and now I can't stop myself from falling asleep with him. He stays asleep a lot longer if there is someone next to him, so he and I have been indulging in 3 hour naps more often than not...we just keep sleeping until one of us wakes up. DH laid down with us on Saturday for nap time, and we all slept for 4 1/2 hours - unreal!
I usually feel amazing during the second trimester, but here I sit at 15 weeks, feeling like I ran a marathon yesterday and haven't slept in weeks.
I'm just about 12 weeks now, and while I'm not completely exhausted and in a fog all day like I was a few weeks ago, I still tucker out really easy. Simple things like running errands, house cleaning, etc will really take the wind out of my sails. I'm still feeling like I need at least 9 hours of sleep a night, and then I'm relatively good to go until I perform some menial task. Here's to hoping for that "burst of energy" we have coming to us in the second trimester! :-0
