Anyone else still need naps or sleep early?

In greek we have different words to describe how tired we are...There's TIRED, SLEEPY AND WHAT I LIKE TO USE-----PSOFIA, IT MEANS I FEEL DEAD.

I don't remember feeling this tired with my son by this point.

I'm way more tired now than I was early in the pregnancy. It's hard for me to fall asleep and then I keep waking up and can't go back to sleep.

I don't have the overwhelming urge to sleep from mid afternoon and when I get home from work like I did; but I am generally more consistently tired. I think it is because I'm not sleeping as well at night either.

Same here. I don't sleep well at night or I have trouble actually falling asleep. It causes a problem in the daytime.

Ok I am not that far behind you!.... this time around is kicking my butt too. I keep telling SO that I am too old for this. LOL But I do think my being so tired is like others said, I don't sleep well anymore.... up an down all night.

I"m still exhausted all the time too. It's 11 p.m right now and i'm surprised i'm still up. Probably because I slept in til 9 today, but yep... soooo sleepy all the time. Doesn't help that I keep getting every sickness that passes me by. Darn colds!!

I am beyond exhausted! This is #4 and I am home with them all day alone from 5:30am-3pm so I am so tired and nearly passing out before DH gets home.

I'm not *as* tired as I was in the first trimester - I felt like I got run over by a truck for those few months - but I'm still so tired. I have been needing a nap during the day, or while waiting for Kate to go down for her nap I'll fall asleep on the couch while she watches TV. :/ I have no motivation to do anything at all. I have entered slug-mode.

I go between really tired and exhausted to energetic and cleaning. But when I am tired it's almost as if I can't even get up or walk. Like I'm just spent.

Me too - I hope the nausea/vomiting stops soon, if I was just tired, I could deal with that, I think. I go to bed sometimes as early as 7:30pm and I don't get up until 7am in the morning. I do wake up several times a night. My OB said the extra hormones from having a girl could be could be the reason for both - which may not get better until after the baby's born. I hope you're not in the same boat!

I am crushing tired at times when it's not possible to sleep (a toddler mostly stopping me!) and then get into bed at night to have trouble falling asleep/staying asleep. What kind of joke is that?!

Also I decided on a whim to take the kids to Germany on Friday (to Europa Park... I won't be able to go on the rides but the hotel has a spa ) and have NO ENERGY to get prepared and packed. Ugh, leaving at 5.30am on Friday morning - what was I thinking?!

It must be nice to be a hop away from other countries. What is Europa Park? And is it just you and the kids? If so what were you thinking?

I'm always tired! Same thing last pregnancy, there was no second trimester wind for me. I was exhausted the whole 9 months!

Europa Park compares favorably to EuroDisney in all the reviews I've seen - well, the Germans are very efficient! The theming of the park is meant to be fantastic, and the hotel we're in is a representation of the Coloseum (so, again, very themed!).

And, clearly, I'm crazy, but not THAT crazy... DF is coming too

Your family is Greek? We were in Greece in May, Halkidiki near Thessalonika. Beautiful, and the Greek are very welcoming and family orientated - we WILL return!

And, yes, it's lovely that Europe is so easy to reach. Doesn't stop me coming Stateside when I can though! So far, New York City x3, Vegas, Florida... and twice to Montreal all in the last five years
