I gotta get some vitamins or eat tons of fruit or SOMETHING. I cannot function like this!!
Aimee Blessed Momma to 4 amazing boys, P ~ 9 H ~ 7 J ~ 4 and B ~ 1. Happily married to D Living my almost dream life on an urban homestead, hoping for our forever land to find us soon!
I've been making a little next on the floor of the playroom, shutting the door and trying to snooze while kids play around me! Maybe that is naughty of me, but i"m sooooo sleepy and I find myself getting snappish if I don't take a rest sometime in the day.
DH was saying it's b/c I've spent most of my life being sleep-deprived and I can't tell the difference. Like my coping mechanism for exhaustion is overdeveloped or something. I somehow don't think that's it.

I do understand about the strange bouts of energy (not that I'm getting them myself ), because sometimes my heart speeds up at unusual moments. I think it's part of the whole symptomatic package.
Even the thought of caffiene makes me want to puke. Many of my food-related thoughts follow that path these days...
I'm only 6 weeks along and SOOOOO ready for the second trimester.
The other day I got one of those energy charges, and I cleaned a little. It was short lived.
It is 8 am and I am at work, I feel like I could use a nap today already!
I was always exhausted too before being PG with bebe #2 (WOHM, only driver in the family, main housecleaner/cooker, etc.). When do I feel happy and enjoy life again?
Last week I couldn't care a less. I didn't cook all week. Thank goddess for my mother who felt a buzz and cooked few things....we also ordered in or had sandwiches and salad. I also haven't made our lunches for work in WEEKS. I just don't care. I'm too tired.
I'm also a "buzz and do things at any available moment" type person, but this week and weekend has been Zzzzzzzzzzz! I am thinking of playing hooky tomorrow just to REST!!! Dh and I try to trade off to give each other a little extra time to sleep on the weekend but we can never really quite catch up on sleep. (Catch up? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! )
I am also ticked off because my brain doesn't work as sharply as it used to at work given all this exhaustion and sleep deprivation. Kind of embarassing.......
Let's commiserate. How do you cope?
Me + Dh = Dd1(9.5 yrs) + Dd2(7 yrs) and Ds(4.5 yrs)
