This first trimester fatigue is not joking around! I have a 2.5 year old and she has not mastered the art of playing by herself. She's very extroverted while I just want to read a book.Ripresa, How old are your kids? I have a 5 1/2 year old son, so he's old enough to entertain himself when I need to lie down. Also, when I was pregnant with him I had a full time job so it was actually harder than this time around. I just finished teaching for the year, and now I just teach piano lessons one day a week and run a nonprofit org part-time. I have found though, that if I try to stay standing and moving I'm better off than lying down because I'll never get up again. That being said, I'm currently taking 2 naps a day, lol.
