Anyone else already exhausted and feeling HUGE?

I know this is my third pregnancy and all....but WOW. I am already exhausted, and yesterday I actually put on a pair of maternity pants because I felt uncomfortable in my regular pants. I do not want to be in maternity clothes quite yet...

Anyone else feeling like this?

Not feeling huge but I am exhausted. And I am sleeping like a rock and getting up wayyyyy too early.

Naps are a weekend thing for me now Smile Ahhhh how they are amazing. I feel myself crash at work in the afternoons but chug on through.

As for feeling huge, actually up until this weekend I was doing well. I just got a bunch of new (to me) maternity clothes though and I have been "trying them out". I am in a pair of mat shorts right now and they are SOOOOO comfy. Back to regular pants tomorrow. With Nicholas, I was really bloated at the beginning but this time I am pretty normal until around this time at night Smile

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, my body has decided that 10pm is late enough to stay up and that 6am is a perfectly acceptable time to wake up. It's very hard for me to adjust to that because I'm used to staying up until 1 or 2 in the morning and then waking up at 7 during the week and 9 on the weekends (thankfully, Things 1 and 2 wake up at around the same time as I do...or used to).

And yes, I'm tired ALL THE TIME. I fell asleep on the couch yesterday at 11pm with company over while playing a game. I'm so rude.

I don't feel any bigger yet, but I also cut out pop for the most part when I found out, so instead of 4+ Diet Mt. Dew's throughout the day, I'm drinking one can of Sierra Mist/Sprite everyday with dinner, just for the fizzies. I think cutting down drastically on my pop intake while upping my water definitely helped me shed some of the water that I was retaining, so that's helping a lot.

Not too bad on the tired part so far. I have been tired, but I have a 3 1/2 yr old and an almost 2 yr old, so it's normal for me to feel tired at the end of the day. Wink

I don't feel huge, but I am bloated. I took my first belly pic on Sat. and I already look like I'm 14 weeks pg. lol I have been cramping a lot the last 2 days though. I feel like AF is about to show any minute. Anyone else cramping ? I remember cramping like this with my first, but not with my second.

This is me, except I've been going to bed around 8:30 and waking up between 4-6 am. I was on vacation all last week so that was no big deal, but today I had to come back to work and its rough to be on this sleep schedule. Even my 2 year old has started to wake up early with me and he is usually a late sleeper.

This sounds like me! Ha ha! Bloat, bloat, bloat! Bluh! I went to a wedding this weekend and thank goodness there was a flower on the front of my dress to block my bloated tummy!

I've had some cramping too. It comes and goes and is on both sides, which my OB said is the kind of cramping they like.

And as for the tiredness, I have a 3 1/2 year old, so that might explain why I'm ready to check out earlier than usual.

My boobs hurts. That's about it. No bloating yet. I'm always tried, so that's nothing new. I'm also sick too, so that's not helping with my tiredness.
