I always have some cramping in early pregnancy. Probably not to the extent that you're explaning although with my first I always worried I was miscarrying.

I have morning sickness, which I can keep under control by eating and snacking (a lot).

The fatigue is something I've never had to this level as a result of a pregnancy. It's the tiredness that has me baffled. I nearly slept around the clock for the last five days. I often seem to have a spike in energy towards the later evening, around 6-8 pm. Which works with putting kids to bed and stuff. I've been pregnant 4 times before and I've never experienced anything like this.

I have my first appointment on Thursday. I'll talk to the midwife about it. Maybe I need some vitamins or iron or something. Before finding out I'd been tired but I'd chalked it up to having started a new job and a new daily routine. Hopefully they can figure out something that can help. I can't imagine a person can live like this for any extended period of time.
