First trimester exhaustion I understand. Every pregnancy I am wiped in my first trimester, second trimester I perk up a bit, third trimester I'm tired because I'm lugging a basketball around in my belly.
But this pregnancy I cannot even begin to describe the exhaustion. It is like nothing I've experienced before. With my previous pregnancies I couldn't get through the day without a nap. Now I can't get through the morning without a nap... and then can't get through the afternoon without a nap...and then I'm ready for bed by 6:30 pm when my littles go to sleep. I'm not even voluntarily napping... if I sit down I fall asleep. Today I fell asleep standing up doing dishes!
I talked to a friend of mine who is pregnant with her 10th and she said that it could be related to the number of pregnancies I've had (I've had a lot of losses) She said she found pregnancies 6 & on were particularly exhausting.
Anyone experience this bone crushing exhaustion? Any ideas/suggestions?
