I completely understand! I'm exhausted all the time, but have horrid insomnia at night... which might be why I'm so exhausted lol. And I'm getting some back and hip pain. I get it normally when its winter time. Gymnastics screwed up my body and now I have arthritis. So sadly, its like I have arthritis all the time now....

Oh its fine I'm used to it! And just think, in a few short months, we'll really be whining about being run down and tired with our new babes around

I get leg cramps when I get dehydrated or low of potassium. If your drinking plenty of water you may think about adding some bananas or salt to your diet. And I know how you feel about being tired all the time. I always nap when DS goes down on the weekends. So that means 1-2 3hr naps on Sat and Sun. And now it's 9pm and I'm already thinking about going to bed.

Hi, I am lurking from the Oct. DDC... have you had your iron levels checked recently? With both of my healthy pregnancies, I have become anemic toward the end of my second trimester when baby starts to grow more quickly. Taking additional iron supplements has helped IMMENSELY with the fatigue! I'm currently taking an iron tablet with breakfast and another with lunch, then my prenatal with dinner.

Always tired here, too. I can't seem to wake up before 10 (thankfully my kids don't wake up until 930) and I'm ready for a nap before they are! But by the time they nap, I have somehow found a list of things to do :/. And then I don't end up falling asleep until 1am. I don't suffer from the leg cramps, but the headaches are brutal. But soon, this part will be a distant memory...

I hear ya!! I had like, a one month second trimester and now I feel like I am already at the end! My sciatic nerve is acting up, my back aches all the time and I am exhausted and starving! I thought it was hard when I was pregnant with DS but now it seems so much harder this time b/c it's such a hotter year (was 105 the other day!!), and because I have a 2 year old to chance after all day and clean up after. I am probably going to start seeing the chiropractor next month though and see how that goes.. b/c I know my nerve and back pain will only get worse from here.. so maybe that's something for ya to look into also for the pains and exhaustion.
