I'm so tired! I'm getting about 8 hours of sleep at night, but I absolutely can't make it through the day without a 20-45 minute nap. And, when I wake up, I feel so out of it. I don't think I can get anymore sleep at night b/c my bladder is about to burst in the morning when I wake up. And, I'm not one of those people that can fall back asleep if I wake up after 6:30 or so.

Anyone else?

You just described my daily routine! I need so much more sleep than I'm getting. I'm trying to work 8 hours a day, but I can hardly get that time in, plus a nap, plus some exercise. I'm a walking zombie. I'm hoping as the weeks go on my energy level will increase--hope the same for you, too

Mrs. Mama hey I just noticed we have the same due date~

Yes, I've been very tired lately trying to go to bed early and take small naps through out the day. They say you get a second burst of energy the second trimester, well I haven't.... I'm still staying active walking and doing yoga but I'm just worn out everyday ~

I'm a stay at home mom and I've been sleeping 10 hours a night!!! I have to wake up and pee about 3 times during that time. Sometimes I have trouble falling back to sleep after a bathroom trip. Anyway, I'm still tired each evening. I'm hoping the second trimester energy kicks in soon, I'm 14 weeks tomorrow.

I'm right around the 14th week, as well. Unfortunately I am so dreadfully tired all of the time. Seems like no amount of sleep could be enough. I'm on vacation visiting family and I feel so guilty because all I've been doing is sleeping. I can't wait for this 2nd trimester burst of energy that I keep reading about.

Im so tired, soooo tired, I thought maybe it was just depression or something, but when I feel alive and well get myself all put together for the day and get out of the house it's only a few hours and I feel like I need a major nap. I think I need more sleep with this preg. than the others....but that's probably cause Im in middle of this one!

Me too. I am exhausted constantly. The problem with me is that I am so tired during the day, I literally feel like I'm dragging myself around the house. Then when I go to bed, I have insomnia. It takes a long time to get to sleep. Then when I finally do, I'm up several times throughout the night to pee. Morning comes around and the last thing I feel like doing is getting out of bed and starting the day. I seriously can't wait for the 2nd trimester energy burst. I'm officially in the 2nd tri now but don't feel any energy burst.

Every time I think I am over the whole being tired all the time thing, and try to do a whole bunch of stuff, I end up needing a three hour nap.

It's funny b/c when I hit 13 weeks I swear I got more tired, I don't remember this from my 1st trimester so I think my body is confused. Like right now I'm trying to stay awake, but I know I should just give in and take a nap. I feel lazy, but I guess it's for a reason!

I just started to feel a bit better last week. I think it helped that I popped too and now I don't need to pee all night.

Hope you mamas start to feel more energetic soon!

I am still tired too. I am feeling a bit better since Tuesday, though. I still go to bed around 8pm. My thyroid levels have returned to normal in a very short amount of time. I think that has helped, but I still can't function that much. Definitely no exercising. It is frustrating as I am getting very depressed from being tired all the time.
