I remember the fatigue setting in around 3 mos when I was expecting my son. I was much younger then, and was not nearly as busy as I am now.

I am falling asleep at work. I'm working right now in fact, and I'm yawing in customers' ears, falling asleep in between calls and even closing my eyes when waiting for a customer to complete a task. Not Good.

I am working 9+ hours at my job right now, plus my farm and house chores and DS started soccer. We are harvesting too, so I have a lot of canning/freezing to do. But I am getting to bed by 9:30 - 10 and I'm sleeping to 5:30 AM (minus bathroom breaks). I just can't seem to feel rested. This is not a good omen for later in the pregnancy!

Who else is fighting the fatigue?

Wow you are one busy lady! I can see why you feel tired. I'm sorry, that really sucks. I hope it lifts soon!
I was super tired in the first trimester with both pregnancies. I never got a "burst of energy" in the second tri, but I did feel less tired.

I'm right there with you. It wasn't too bad when I was pregnant last time because all I had was Jackson and he has always been such a great napper but now that I am taking care of 2 of them it is really taking it's toll. I also work full time so I don't get too much sleep at night. I sleep about like you although lately I've been going to bed around 9:00 and sleeping until 5:30 am. and jackson just started t-ball so while I enjoy it, it is wearing me out.

I feel exhausted and I don't even do half of what you do so I know you are really tired. I never really got that second trimester energy. I got just a little but not like I did in my last pregnancies.

I can't imagine being pregnant and taking care of a little one much less two little ones. How do you do it and work full time?

Out of curiosity, what is second trimester energy? I have no clue what that is.

Some people say you get a "burst of energy" in your second trimester. Basically I think what it is (for some people) is that they're so dog tired in their first trimester, that when the fatigue lifts somewhat in the second tri they feel so much better.

You are very busy! I seem to have fatigue from conception. It is only 6ish right now and I have been yawning for an hour just waiting for Marsi's bed time so I can go lay down. I don't remember being this tired with Marsi until my later trimesters. I am really nervous about later pregnancy with this one! And, Marsi is a great sleeper/napper. I think most of mine comes from being sick all the time though.
