I feel like I'm doing o.k. if I can keep up on dishes and laundry... sometimes keeping the house clean is a challenge, my son feels so messy all of a sudden! I've been plopping in front of the t.v. around 2 and barely moving until 5. I feel like I'm back in my 1st trimester but without the nausea thank goodness!

I am dragging, too. I had my iron checked and it was at the very bottom of "normal". I'm weaned off my meds, which are a stimulant, last week. I figure that has a lot to do with it, too. And the up every hour to pee...annoying and not good for my energy level.

I'm also getting next to nothing done around the house. I do half the dishes, and then more pile up. Then I do a load of laundry and it sits in the washer or dryer for a day or two. I feel like all I do is prepare food, eat, drink, pee, blow my nose, and then I'm getting hungry again, so then I do it all over again. Went out w/some ladies in my local moms group for pedicures today. DH doesn't seem to mind that I'm not getting much done. He points to my belly and says "You're working hard enough!" I love it!
Living happily and embracing adventures.
I told DH I'm TIRED of being TIRED.
I even tried to rest yesterday afternoon, just did one load of laundry, and then rested on the couch before DD came home from school - but I was still exhausted by nighttime and am pretty sleepy today.
I had my 2nd iron level drawn Monday, I think the office would have called by now if it was low. I think I'm just tired from LIFE and probably not getting enough sleep.
I keep getting this response when I tell people I'm tired, they say "oh, just wait till the baby comes". Yeah, I know I'll be tired then... but it will be a different sort of exciting tired.
I just want to stay in comfy clothes and sleep! I'm starting to wonder about this working out of the house stuff right up UNTIL (which I planned on doing)...

What should I do different? Anything besides try to exercise? I didn't take a nap yesterday which I thought would help me sleep last night. No luck.
