Working full time and too sleepy to function

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I can't wait till I'm further along with more energy. I swear if I can make it through my work day today without passing out at my desk, I'll be doing great! I go to bed crazy early and get lots of sleep at night, but I'm so exhausted all day. I literally look at the clock and think to myself "only ___ hours until I can go home and nap". Yet, that nap never happens as a mom. I'm struggling with wanting to rest constantly, but I have a full time job, a house that needs cleaned, dinner that needs cooked etc. I called in a day last week just so I could rest more. It was amazing! Yet, I was back to normal the next day of being so exhausted.

Maybe it's pregnancy, maybe it's the progesterone I'm on. I don't know, but I would kill for a nap right now.

Sorry you are so tired. Have you tried getting up and doing some stretches or breathing exercises throughout the day? It may only help for 10 minutes, but it is something.. sorry.
