I worked when I was pregnant with DD and I was exhausted, but on the bright side I didn't have anyone to take care of at that point when I got home and I could just relax. You should feel less tired by your second trimester though. I don't remember feeling all that tired after 12 weeks
Mom to my wildchild Kalyna (Dec 2008)
Yes work is sooo hard! I'm tired and just want to go home and lay down. I can't wait for the exhastion to let up. My baby brain is kicking in though...I'm forgetting all sorts of things. I feel so unfocused! It takes all I have to drag my butt out of bed in the morning. Need sleep....or coffee!
I waited tables when I was pregnant with #2 until the day I gave birth. I actually had to call into work to have my baby lol. I did it because I had no choice. I was a single mom at the time, so that was how we lived
I am struggling also, I was telling the DH that this baby is kicking my butt already! I feel a little bit better today tho thank God. When I get home I go straight to bed, my kids are not use to seeing me so tired but they know I am pregnant so they are ok and just go with the flow. DH pretty much is running thangs around the house, I appreciate him for it too ...lol
I've had a terrible time getting out of bed lately, especially now that it's still dark in the morning when I get up. I do get tired while working, too. I just told my boss today, so I'm hoping he'll cut me a little slack. He's cool. He actually got on the phone with my husband when he called and said "You broke rule number 1. You made your problem my problem. Now I'm going to be down an employee for 12 weeks because you couldn't keep it in your pants." He was joking of course, and it was so freakin funny. It really made my day.
Yep. I work 40 hours a week and then wrestle two crazy kids by myself most days (DF works very long hours and travels a lot for work so the kids and I are on our own a lot of nights). I'm pretty much passing out as soon as the kids are in bed.
I am a CNA so my job is physically and mentaly exhausting. I was changing a resident and had to run to her bathroom to throw up then gaged changing another. I am not sure I can do this much longer. I get to work at 6am and I was in tears on the way to work so stressed about how tired I was and how sick I felt
I work full time as an LPN in an assisted/senior living facility. I'm on my feet just about the whole shift, so I'm definitely in the exhausted boat. Hopefully I'll be able to go part time at some point, but right now it's just not feasible.
