Things weren't different until 23 weeks when the babies were much bigger and I started getting regular contractions.
Maybe it's mainly because I'm just soooo much older this time!!

My energy started coming back around 12-14 weeks and then I felt pretty good for a while. I hope you are feeling better soon!
A friend just gave me a snoogle. Haven't started using it yet (mainly because that would involve me taking it out of the package before crawling into bed and the last week has been beyond chaotic and I'm asleep before I lay down at night!). I'm now 13w5d. Energy still hasn't returned. But again, it's been crazy (baseball 3 nights a week...double header games...and graduation activities and plans and if that wasn't enough, we've had to start bottle feeding 5 puppies every 3 hours!). I have an artificial hip and sleeping on my left side bothers me quickly. My right shoulder tends to get stiff when I've slept on it too long. I'm thinking maybe that's why I'm ending up on my belly. Although I have noticed in the last few days, I end up half on my side and half on my belly. Thanks for the advice!
