The tiredness hit me from the day implantation occurred, and I'm not exaggerating! I don't normally nap, I just can't do it, but that first day, I had to put on the TV in our bedroom for Bella and sack out. She wasn't happy about it, kept bouncing all over the bed and all over me, hanging on me so her face was right in mine, saying, "Mama, are you awake yet?" And it was only a 30 minute "nap"! So the next day I had a talk with her about how carrying a baby in my belly can make me very tired, and how I needed her to help me out by letting me take naps. She's been great about it ever since, my good sweetie. Of course, she gets to watch PBS Kids or Noggin during my naps, so that helps :-)
Ugh, when I was working in-office during my first pg, I would fall asleep at my desk. I'm an editor, so imagine having to read boring business text, after lunch, in the early afternoon, in the first trimester. Good night! Now I have a couch in our home office, so I can catnap here, LOL. The only problem will be waking up at some point!
MamaLisa, that's a smart boy you have there--I love the part about the kiss to make sure you were sleeping!
