I am exhausted!

I mean like I could fall asleep at any moment. I am not normally like this, and it is bugging me. I can't get anything done, so my house is a mess... Grrrr...

Anyone else?

Yes, I'm exhausted. there's been a few times this week where I've sat down and been out to wake to one of my kids opening my eyelids or jumping on my lap. Not good with 3 young kids running around. LOL.

Me too! Any suggestions on boosting energy levels would be great. With three other little ones there is a lot that has to be done even if Mama just wants a nap.

Oh, I am so exhausted! Especially starting around lunchtime until about 4pm. I can't even sit down during that period time or I'll sleep for hours.

Today's the first day in a week I haven't taken a nap. I NEVER take naps. Of course, there are still plenty of hours in the day in which to fit a nap.

Very sleepy and groggy here. DD loves her Disney movies, so she's pretty content to watch those while I veg out on the couch for a while. I've just been moving reallllllllyyyyyyy slow doing housework and things. Then sometimes I forget and stand up too fast and get very lightheaded. Ah, the joys of the first trimester.

I'm SOOO tired, too. When I was pg with DD, I slept 12-14 hours a day. I can't do that now, and it's hard!
I'm working on changing my schedule so that I am in bed really early (8:30 last night!) in order to avoid napping when DD naps, it's the only time I can get stuff done.

Yep, I've been pretty tired. That's probably partly because I was out of town at a good friend's wedding this past weekend though, and I spent a lot of energy helping out with wedding stuff. I kept having to take little breaks. I am going to bed really early tonight!

Beyond. Exhausted.

But that could be because I'm packing our entire house up this week to move to a bigger one this weekend with room for new baby.

Or it could be because I'm growing a fetus.

Who knows?

I work 3rd shift, 3am-11am and DH gets home from work at 6pm. I definitely don't get a nice 7 hour nap in there! I still have to run my errands and do the housework so it's usually a 4 hour nap and another 4 hours at night. That was hard before getting pregnant and now I just want to curl up and cry because I can't get seem to actually stay asleep when I do get to sleep. Blech, 2 more days at this job before I start my new one, with different hours and more time to sleep

Not tired exactly.... but groggy and feeling lazy. But it's summer, and we're doing lots of R&R around here, so I'm sure that helps. Also, my client load is blessedly light during my first trimester, so I'm enjoying the slower pace for a few months.

School and all the related activities starts back in a few weeks, and we'll see how that affects me!

Thoroughly exhausted here too. Somewhat conveniently, DD1 still "needs" me to lay down with her for nap. Since I need the rest too, I'm not resisting. I'm going to get as much sleep/rest as I can now! lol

Not only am I exhaausted, but I am oveerwhelmed. We just moved from England back to the US. Last week we got THREE seperate shipments of things, and DH went out of town (he was acyually gone before the last shipment). So my house is FULL of boxes. I cannot unpack when DS is awake and when he is asleep, I have to shower, make food, clean up, have internet time, and I have no energy to unpack.

I am exhausted and feel guilty about my house.

Pretty tired over here too. I've always been a night person, staying up till 3-4am. Now, I'm lucky if I make it to midnight. I'm also pretty worn out during the day and have take a few naps, which is highly unusual for me. Naps usually make me cranky, so you can imagine what I'm like to deal with lately.

Very tired. I've always needed a lot of sleep, but now if I don't get it it's a disaster. I could easily sleep from 9:30 at night to 7:30 or 8:00 in the morning. Of course, I often end up staying awake until 11 and getting up at 7, making me less than chipper.

I'm usually at the office/working all day so no naps

I feel the same. I just got back from vacation and the house is a mess. I have no energy or desire to clean.
