Oh the tiredness.

I am so tired. I took diclectin yesterday and totally forgot it makes me drowsy. I didn't take any today because I am feeling better but very tired. Anybody else tired?

Lurk from June Biggrin

I had the WORST exhasution in my first tri with this baby! Seriously like if I sit down I may not have the energy to stand back up tired. I don't have any suggestions really, just wanted to say hang in there(!) because it got much better for me starting about week 12.

I think that tired is my middle name. If I went to bed at 8:00 I would probably be fine, but there is so much to do that an 8:00 bed time just isn't possible!

2pm is my wall. I usually have to close my eyes for 5-10 minutes and hope noone catches me at work!

I'm starting to feel a bit more energy this week though.

You guys have just made me feel so much better. I feel like such a party pooper - I have no energy to any of the holiday stuff that I normally LOVE. It's a good thing that I could do most of my shopping online.
I'm usually feeling pretty good in the mornings - and I've learned that if I want to get anything done that's when I have to do it. Because by 2pm all I want to do is lay down. Usually if I nap a little then I have enough energy to get dinner ready but by 7 or 8 I can't hardly move.
Thank you Ashley for the encouragement that it gets better. In my head I know that I didn't feel this way all the way through my other pregnancies but somehow this time it feels like it will be endless.

I'm tired and a total party pooper, too! A few weeks ago we went out with some friends to a bar and around 10 they all decided they wanted to go to the casino. I told DH no way because I was soooooo tired and I knew they would be out there until at least 2. I don't know if it's because I am really sick at the moment, I'm pregnant, or a combination of both but man I am really struggling with the exhaustion. I just want to sleep all day or at the least be in my jammies on the couch in a warm blanket!

I know how you are feeling. By 3pm I just want to take a nap. I keep going but last night ended up going to bed at 8.30pm because I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer.

We are going to my parents for Christmas and they normally stay up till at least midnight. When we visit I try to stay up chatting with them but this year there is no way I will manage that, especially as we will be woken up by them at about 8am.

Thank goodness I am not alone in this. My exhaustion stared this week. I am just over 11 weeks. I am not as sick but I get tired very easily. It doesn't matter if I go to bed early or not. I am warn out. I am hoping I get some energy back next week. I am also glad I did my shopping for the holidays early on.

Makes me feel good knowing Im not the only one. Im in bed by around nine at night at the latest, up by around nine pm at the earliest and I STILL take a nap at around one to four every day. Im tired all the time. Even if I get twelve hours sleep Im still tired. Thankfully I have no kids to watch and no work to worry about so I can do that. I cant imagine having to work too or watch kids and be this tired.
