I start back to work in August (the end) with kids and I was wondering if your energy comes back in your second trimester when you are carrying twins? I am scared to death I will feel like this the whole pregnancy and will be worthless. Any tips or suggestions to help? THanks ladies.

Mine came back, but it took until about week 17, so not right at the beginning of the 2nd trimester. I'm tired now, but not like I was that first trimester. I would love to be swimming, but my doc cut me off from working out a few months ago because of contractions. I am still allowed to go for walks though. I probably sleep an hour more per night than I used to.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

My fatigue cleared up a bit in the 2nd trimester, but I started having many other complaints as well. With singleton pregnancies, women talk of the 2nd trimester being so "wonderful," but with these twins, I only had about 2 weeks where I felt decent...there has always been something. I've definitely been worthless for most of the pregnancy, and once you hit 25-30 weeks, you can just forget about it! =)

I felt more energy with my twins than I feel this time with one. I think it's just that every pregnancy is different, and it's hard to know if you'll feel energy again(although I hope you do).

Its hard for me to answer this because I haven't got a ton of sleep since the 3rd week due to all day sickness(hehehehehehe) but I now get more sleep and have more energy in the 2nd trimester!!!

Yea, I was very sleepy in the first trimester, good in the second, and sleepy again in the third, but by the third, being tired was the least of my complaints, LMFAO.
