Only 8 weeks and I have NO energy, when will this end?

This is my second pregnancy, it's been 14 years and I don't remember being this tired before, all I want to do is lay in the bed. How can I boost my energy? I use to drink coffee, but stopped once I found out I was pregnant.

I don't remember my first pregnancy being this tired either but my husband says I am exactly the same...I think its because we forget some of the negative cuz we get such an amazing outcome its all worth it.  That's my theory lol cuz I swear my morning sickness wasn't this bad before but my husband says otherwise...

Now i didn't do this because my energy has been zapped since day one and probably won't be back until my twins are one years old ( I'm 22 weeks tomorrow) but I've read that if you work out it will give you a boost of energy.  I pretty much work full time come home and sleep till the next day,  get up showered and dress and do it all over again

Second trimester i had all of my energy back. Im 38 weeks now and i probably started to notice my decrease in energy come back in the last month or so! Second trimester you get a break from most of the less than amazing symptoms :)

It doesn't.   Every now and again I'll get a spurt of energy and I'm 37 weeks.  I just took a 2 hour nap.   You can have a cup of coffee a day if it'll help but trying to rest when you can.
