I thought the second trimester was supposed to be the GOOD one..Im finding myself more and more exhausted with every day that goes by. I have barely enough energy to do bais things lately. Is this normal?! I NEVER remember being so exhausted with my son besides the first trimester. I just feel like I can't get out of my own way the past couple days. Anyone else?!
Girl I am right there with you. The 1st trimester I was working two jobs and was exhausted. The 2nd trimester totally sucked! I was super tired. 16 hours of sleep a day was not enough. I just entered the 3rd trimester (holy crap I am in the 3rd trimester?!?!) And still super exhausted. When I am not sleeping I am just lounging on the couch or working (I only work 19 hours a week.. 3 nights/week) No matter how much I sleep, how little I do, or if I do alot, I am exhausted!

Me too. I just plain exhausted. A lot of it is that I don't sleep well. My hips cause excruciating pain when I try to move during the night. I try to shift positions and my hips and lower back crack and crunch and it just hurts so bad. Now the heartburn is back so the only way to semi control that is to sleep pretty much sitting up which makes my butt hurt.
I'm exhausted too. Between working 10 hour shifts on my feet and then chasing around a toddler, while making dinner and cleaning house.. I'm just dead tired.. Even on my days off.. If I don't get my afternoon nap, I'm soo grumpy.. Makes me wonder how I do it on the days I work.. lol
I thought the same thing! I was exhausted through the entire first and second trimester and I will be in the third next Tuesday! I have so much to do the coming months that I feel overwhelmed a little. Oh well, my mom will be helping me out a lot so hopefully that will take some of the stress off of me.
I am with you! Last week out of the blue I was exhausted and started needing naps again. It was like I hit a brick wall. Thank goodness I listened to my doctor and quit working but summer school starts tomorrow and I don't know how I'll stay awake through the 4.5hour class!
I'm starting to feel a little more energy but not like I remember having with my daughter. So much for the 2nd trimester "honeymoon phase." I will wake up with energy - but it only lasts a few hours & then I'm exhausted again.
This time I am a lot more busy and my dd doesn't care if I'm tired after a long day so I don't get to rest as much as before. Maybe that's it. I'm not sure.
thats probably it. I was never so tired with my son...but then again when I was pregnant with him i had no other children to worry about! Im feeling very motivated today (as motivated as someone on "modified" bedrest could be lol) I even cleaned a little today. I think it also could have something to do with the fact that I only woke up ONCE last night, as opposed to the 4 bathroom trips I usually make a night
