OK - I am 13 weeks and thought my tiredness would be going away.
Like Joan, I was well into my 2nd Trimester before I really began to feel like my energy was back. I think for me it was around 16 weeks...so hang in there!
Seems like this time around, I am generally more tired than I was with the past two pregnancies. I really couldn't say if it is due to my age or due to the fact that I have a 5 and 3 year old to chase after. This pregnancy I definitely have not been able to nap as much as I did in the past. You just can't leave a 5 year old to monitor a 3 year old...believe me, I've tried! LOL
Meal prep and laundry have also become my main priorities; this sometimes frustrates my husband, but oh well! Now that I have been feeling better I do find myself getting more "gravy" items accomplished, and I'm taking advantage of this time b/c I know in a month when I hit T3 it's gonna feel more like T1!
Take care of yourself the best you can,Val
Tiredness is my biggest complaint right now, still, at 24 1/2 weeks.

Are you me? Just kidding!
I have been tired through my entire pregnancy. I think it's because I have to chase after an active 2 year old. My mom thinks it's because I'm 2 years older than when I was last pregnant. I need to nap every afternoon.
Needless to say, little gets done here after I watch our daughter fulltime and prepare for my piano students. My husband is left with alot of housework and I feel guilty but any activity, especially now during my 3rd trimester, is leaving me exhausted.
I do the best I can whenever I have the most energy and that's all I can provide right now. I think it's more important that we stay healthy. The housework will always be there. And believe me, we used to be neat freaks and very organized. Now we're lucky if we can find our keys and clothes in the morning.
Hang in there!Gisele
