One of my main cues that I was pregnant was the exhaustion factor. I can't seem to shake this feeling. Today alone I have taken 2 naps and am dreaming about another one. This isn't our first child so I don't understand why he is acting like I am skirting my responsibilities (i.e. Cooking, Cleaning, I am a stay at home mom so the stuff always gets done before he gets home from work). With this being said our 2 year old thinks that sleep is for the weak and is utterly unnecessary for him, so I am up with him until he decides that he is ready for bed then get woke up by my DH when he gets home at 2:30 in the morning :/

Sorry for venting but it kinda annoys me that he is being extremely unsympathetic towards me. It takes a lot of energy to GROW another human being.

Have you talked to him about how you feel? You're not alone in this... many partners just don't understand!
I completely know what you mean about being exhausted... it's tough when you already have a little one to chase after. You're lucky you can nap though!
I have an almost 4 year old, a 2.5 year old, a 9 month old, and I'm pregnant again - no naps for me.

Mine definitely doesn't get it too. My kids are all over the place too and fight naps so I completely understand. I hope you are able to get some rest.

thankfully mine has been better this time around, but he was like that with our first. I never found a way to get it through to him, well actually when I had really bad nausea he was a bit more sympathetic. I was pissed though that it took me being sick for him to be understanding. I hope yours comes around

That really sucks, my husband is pretty good but he works a lot so I am alone with the girls a lot so I get rest whenever I can. Remember that being tired usually only last for the first trimester

Thanks everyone for the reassurance. I have indeed told my husband how I feel. And he has been better lately, but it is definitely annoying. But I am glad that I am not alone in this exhaustion induced state.
