I have three also with my fourth on the way. This pregnancy hit me like a sledge hammer. My others were pretty easy no real symptoms, this time I was exhausted from the beginning. I took naps and slept all the time as well. I am 12 weeks and things are a little better, I am still really tired, but don't have the insane need for a nap in the middle of the day anymore.
Sounds like me! I feel so lazy with this one and this is also my forth pregnancy
I'm nine weeks with my third and I am always tired but I have also realized a hour nap around dinner is plenty because if I get to much sleep it just makes me more tired then I was to start with. Good luck hope it gets better the farther along you get
I know how u ladies feel im 21 weeks and I feel so lazy and im so exhausted all the time I have a 3&2 year old that im always trying to keep up with but sometimes its so hard I get sleep when ever I can
Thanks ladies, don't feel so crazy now lol. I has txted my mom earlier today about it, she also had 4. She said could be my iron is low, and asked if I felt depressed lol. I told her no, I don't feel depressed, just exhausted, and lazy ha.
I was the same way! I have a 11 y.o. 7 y.o. 1 y.o and I'm 31 wks. I have Gestational diabetes with this pregnancy. Never had it b4. They just recently put me on insulin and Im a million times better. I Have my days where I'm tired but for most part I'm up and being productive. I also went on leave from my job 3 weeks ago. Hubby is looks for a 2nd job til I have the baby. I couldn't keep up with pt work, kids homework with them, cleaning, life, etc...I was exhausted. Couldn't do nothing but sleep and was so sore constantly. It's hard with me not working til he finds something else. But I jz couldn't do it no more. My health was going down hill from all of it. Plus I'm nicer to the kids. I was soon irritated all the time. I felt so bad I kept saying sry mommy's so frustrated all the time.
Would think that being exhausted is normal now that I'm not the only one who feels this way. I worked with my first all the way up until I was 8 months pregnant. It's 7 years later and 35 weeks and I cannot get enough sleep. Even eating is an issue because I'm always hungry like I can't get enough. I also feel dehydrated as well. God bless you all that have little ones. I do not know how you do it! I have no energy what so ever. Sex haha out of the equation. Good luck to you all!!:-)
Kfw6293- I get the working plus everything at home thing. I got lucky and am only in my office 2x a week for about an hour, the rest of my work is done at home, I do medical billing. So I get to work around my own schedule. With g ge news that this one is on its way though my husband, who has been so understanding, has been working 12 hour shifts at work. It's craziness cause he's hardly home but I got lucky and when he is home help out a lot, plus my 6&8 yo's are girls and love helping with their brother. I apologized to my hubby today though and thanked him for being so understanding. I just felt like I was losing it trying to figure out why I was so exhausted.
