I'm about 14 wks pg with dc2. DD is 19 months old. I work FT as an attorney with Legal Aid. I have been so tired for the past 10 weeks or so that it's pathetic. I feel like I'm getting nothing done at work. Although I've completed two briefs in the past couple of weeks, I've just let other stuff that is "non-essential" slide. This only serves to make life more difficult in the long run, as I end up playing catch up on that "non-essential" stuff later and have that whole "oh darn, I've procrastinated and now I'm going to pay" feeling. I ended up nightweaning dd over Christmas (I was off for a week) and she ended up pretty much losing interest in nursing altogether in mid-January. So I've been getting plenty of sleep (crashing about 9 or so and sleeping until 6:30 or a bit later).
There's no real point to this post other than a need to get these feelings out in the form of a vent and to ask BTDT moms, do you get that 2nd trimester energy again with the second dc or am I doomed to exhaustion through this entire pregnancy?
