Eating!!!!I work a lot - full time, part time, and from home. The tiredness was a huge shock - no one talks about it other than us! I'm coping principally by ingesting massive amounts of fruits, vegetables, and protein, washed down with lots of water. For some reason, if I keep eating and drinking, I don't feel as tired. The really weird thing is that I'm actually craving these healthy foods - it's like the baby just isn't impressed with sugar.
Otherwise, it's just become a routine of 8 o'clock bedtimes and naps whenever possible (usually only on weekends.)
I can't change my routine a lot, as the family depends on my income. So, I'm hoping to take between 8 and 12 weeks of family friendly leave and then resign myself to day care. I have a wonderful lady who keeps just a few children in her home, but it's still going to suck.
btw, how do I change my handle? I didn't realize when I signed up that I was giving my real name as a screen name.
Enjoying this forum a lot - you ladies are great!
