Tired, very tired. Is it normal to be this tired?

I am exhausted, but I dont do that much all I do is - get up at 6.00 take the dogs out, cook brekkie well half of it cause I cant crack the eggs or look at anything uncooked at the moment- have a shower and do hair- work from 10-12 and then I am absolutely exhausted- snooze- work till 4 then get hubbie to do everything else. (very active before pregnancy, didnt stop)

I think swimming after 12 weeks may help give me a bit of energy?

Anyone else like this and anyone else done a little excercise after 12 weeks and it has helped.

I dont mind being tired is it normal to be this tired?

It is the progesterone in your system. It is very similar to calming drugs :)

It WILL get better :)

Hi Kate

I'm really tired too. I'm working 9-5 and am ok in the mornings but about 10 minutes after I've had lunch I really feel like I need a sleep! I've found myself hiding in the loo just to shut my eyes for 10 minutes. The afternoons are a real struggle and all I can think about is wanting to sleep or get home. When I get in I'm not too bad but have no motivation to go anywhere or do anything and have found that I ready for bed as early as 8.30pm when I'm normally an 11.30pm girl!

I guess its our bodies conserving energy to grow our bubs. Are you eating enough good foods too? I was reading that your bub takes all of the nutriuents you take in and your own needs have to get by on whatever is left over! I'm sure I'm eating ok, but still tired all the same :P

Hi Kate

It is COMPLETELY normal! I have turned into a duvet monster both my pregnancies.

I get up at 7 am tired again by 10, hold off till lunch (cos I want food) then go for a kip!

It is starting to get better now at 11 weeks though, sleeps are only an hour as opposed to 3-4 lol. I too used to be really active, gym 4-5 times a week and dog walking too but it has been really hard sometimes just to wlak the dog! Hoping to get back into it a bit when tiredness passes.

Go with what ur body is telling you!

Hi Kate

Just to let you know that I was soo tired I fell asleep half way through a conversation with dh and had to have a nap at 6 when I got in from work for half hour before I could do anything then went to bed at 9.

Last week through it has got a lot better still occassionally tired but not all the time like before. There is light at the end of the tunnel, honest :)

Hey babes

Me too - is a bit better last 2 weeks or so, but just cant do a thing!!!! Am hoping that I get the all clear to do some gentle swimming in the next few weeks and that as time goes on we'll perk up, but in the meantime, am off to bed soon and its only 9am!!!!

ARghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

:yes: yep yep yep completely normal. Unfortuantely the first 12 weeks are the most exhausting (until you get humungous but thats a different sort of tiredness!) I was sitting on the sofa after work and falling asleep at 6pm only to be woken by DH to go to bed at 10! I have fallen asleep at the cinema, on a tour bus, at someones dinner party.... he he! so embarassing particularly when you are keeping it a secret for the first 3 months!

Gets a bit better in the 2nd trimester you don't feel the total exhaustation but I still can't stay awake after 9pm and need a kip in the day :snigger:

That's why we call them the valium weeks!! Feels like someone drugged you doesn't it?

It's perfectly normal and it will pass once you get to around 12 weeks.

Kate, reading your post has made me feel better... I am miles behind you and absolutely knackered... I figure it's part and parcel. DH said his friends wife who is in early pg is knackered too. From one :puke: woman to another :puke: sick woman - I figure it's all a good sign... apparently after 3 months things start to improve!
