bax I remember being tired the first two times, but this time it's just so much more overwhelming. I can barely get off the couch before 10am every morning, so my littles are just watching videos and foraging in the kitchen for snacks while I "sleepervise." Then I take a sleepervising nap almost every day, and I'm tired again by 10pm. Now I have a horrible head cold, too, and I'm just useless! Poor, wonderful DH has been cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping, watching kiddos ALL WEEKEND while I sleep!

littleteapot I feel like such a lazy butt lately because I can't stop napping! Every day it's like I can barely get off the ground... when my kids get up I put on a movie and nap on the couch and then convince them to go outside so I can sneak in another 20 minutes.
ON TOP OF THAT I'm usually taking another short nap in the afternoon, then sleep 8-9 hours at night (although that's heavily broken). HOW MUCH SLEEP COULD I POSSIBLY NEED?!

elisheva I have also been experiencing this same type of fatigue and my MW suggested I start taking iron. In the history of the world and my previous three pregs, my iron has never been even close to low at any point. She ordered blood tests but in the mean time I've been taking Spa-Tone iron supplements and I feel ten times better. Still not 100% but I'm at least able to do the minimum to keep the house running now. Before I spent every waking moment longing for my bed. I tried doing some brisk walking but I only felt worse.

rareimer it's exhausting making a human being...that's what i tell Ty every time he makes fun of me for sleeping all day and still being tired.
11-06-2010 11:10 PM
weliveintheforest I am also exhausted. Sleeping way more than usual, and always yawning.
10-28-2010 07:26 PM
Knittin Mama Tired in my bones. That exhausted feeling you get after you've done good hard physical labor. I slept 12 hours last night. I hate my bed, I wake up every single morning with a back ache. Sadly it's on the 2nd floor of our apt and I can't manage to maneuver the boxspring up the 180 degree turn in the stairs. I have a split board under the mattress, but I'm not sure that is helping. Seriously considering getting a new bed. Growing babies is tiring work!
10-22-2010 06:46 PM
Tumble Bumbles I'm so tired I can't even remember if I responded to this thread already lol

I can't believe the level of fatigue this time. I remember feeling similar with our first but of course, I had the luxury of lying around resting whereas I actually have to attempt to be a decent mother this time :P

Christine, I can relate about the cough, we have the cold here too. It's on it's way out thank God.
10-22-2010 05:14 PM
tine1973 I am completely exhausted, and I have a cold with a ridiculous cough. Coughing takes all the energy I have! and I've never been a napper so its very hard for me to lie down in the middle of the day, even when I can. Can't wait for the tired to subside!
10-20-2010 07:47 PM
TexasHopeful I am so glad you ladies are having this too. I thought I was crazy (this is my first too). I have almost fallen asleep at work (school teacher) several times. I also almost fell asleep on my way to work a couple of times...kinda scary. I had to roll the windows down in the car and get some fresh air! I try to take a nap in the afternoon, and nothing! I feel like I've climbed Mt.Everest ALL DAY LONG (or how I would imagine that would feel)!!!

citymagnolia I got some strength from reading all of your replies to this. I'm sooo tired all the time, like I've been doing cardio for hours and hours. At least now I can think of all you other mamas dragging yourselves through the day and I'm not the only one.

Today we ate 2 meals and a snack out--I didn't cook anything at home! Usually we might eat out twice/month, and I had no business spending the money on that, so I feel totally guilty about it. Well, pick it back up and try again tomorrow...yawwwwwnnnn...

I'll admit that during my last pregnancy I was so miserable that I sort of trained my then 2yo to like cartoons. Before that time we didn't even have a TV and cartoons didn't keep her interest at all

Mamatoabunch I could have easily fallen asleep while I sat in the van, while the kids played at the park. I need to start going to bed earlier.
10-18-2010 05:56 PM
amaayeh There are some days (like yesterday) that I'm exhausted and truly feel like I have the flu...achy, tired, not wanting to eat, etc. Then today, I got up and walked dd to school and that made me feel so much better. I think I'm going to try to do yoga around 3 or 4 today to see if I can ward off that late afternoon yuck.
10-18-2010 03:16 PM
Buddhamom I use to be the last one to sleep at 10 and now I find myself crawling into bed at 7 and watching tv there and drifting off. Poor DH has been putting our LO to bed alone some night at 8. Luckily she is in full day school so I can take my 1.5 hour nap during the day. The worst for me isn't just tired but I get nauseous in the evenings too. No throwing up, just ucky feeling in my stomach.
10-18-2010 02:38 PM
JustVanessa people keep asking me if I am sick
10-18-2010 12:25 PM
sagewinna I started falling asleep mid-convesation a few nights ago. lol It's been early to bed for me.
10-18-2010 10:52 AM
lindsayncadence Me too. I just started my tax preparing class last month and had been doing great up until last week. I went once but could barely concentrate I was too tired and the other day I didnt even have the energy to walk into the classroom. I have been trying to take naps but that doesnt happen too often and when it does one of the kids wake me up lol. I am just going to try and get use to it I am sure with 3 kiddos and 2 under 3 I wont be getting much sleep lol
10-18-2010 10:48 AM
Bald_Bull's_Mama I feel like I'm doing OK so far. DS doesn't nap anymore and still nurses at night. I've been expecting to fall asleep when I'm putting him to bed at 8, but haven't been.
10-18-2010 10:14 AM
Max'sMama I am always exhausted too. Definitely not normal for me. There have been days that I am asleep before my husband, which never happens.
10-18-2010 08:30 AM
kawa kamuri For me the tired isn't so much sleepy tired but a feeling like I've been doing the most strenuous and exhausting bodily work for days. I feel physically spent. Coupled with not sleeping well I'm always in a haze.
10-17-2010 10:57 PM
Mamatoabunch Me too! Went on a trip w/ just dh and came home feeling really tired, yawning all the time.
10-17-2010 10:40 PM
simplybeingamama I am right there with you, I took two naps today, Bella still gets up at night to nurse sometimes, and this week has been alot more up at night....yawn...

on the 3:00 thing. And on the dinners, too. DH has been making dinner for the family, and we've been eating out a lot more. I just went back to work, then got pregnant, so there was already a big adjustment going on in our house!

So tired. I've been in bed and asleep by 8:30 every night for weeks. I am feeling guilty, as DH doesn't get to bed as early, so I haven't been there for him at all.

Let's all hang in there!

JustVanessa Yep, par for the course for me. With every pregnancy, I don't throw up but I walk around in a sleepy haze all day. I have been sleeping 9 hours at night plus a nap, thank goodness for being home all day and my little one still naps so I can lay down when he does.
