Anyone else struggling with exhaustion?

I am soooooo tired!! This is the part of early pregnancy that's the hardest, I think. And it certainly doesn't help that I have a 10 month old who still wakes up about every 2 hours to nurse! I've become completely useless around the house. I am bound and determined that tomorrow I will sleep in late, and then I will drag my bum out of bed to clean and organize this house!!

Yes! I was proud of myself the other night that I picked up my 2 year olds toys and vacuumed my family room. I can't wait to get past the first trimester and start having more energy!

I'm right there with you! My 19 month old still wakes up 4-10 times a night to nurse... it's EXHAUSTING!

I'm in the same boat! The house is a mess. I've been letting Jake watch way too much TV and I've been doing a lot of laying on the couch after work. I feel like a rotten mom, wife, and teacher!

Me too, I could stay in bed all day I'm so beat! My 16 month old still wakes up several times a night, thankfully she usually goes right back to sleep. But still, I could use a full night's rest! I am just dragging all day, I can't wait to be further along either...

Oh yeah! Exhaustion is the keyword for the agenda every morning when I wake up. I do get sick of it and occasionally feel bum about not doing anything around the house. Thank goodness for hubby taking care of things and 5 year-old son (kindergartner). Life is pretty exhausting, beat...sad. I do remind myself why though and that helps. Hope things get better closer to 2nd trimester. I still am nauseous, gag, smell things differently, burp, sit on sofa everyday and just stay there and wish the day would be over so I could sleep and forget. Next morning, get up and run to bathroom to gag and do the usual thing and feel all tired again. What a viscious cycle! Waaaa haaaa.

Yes! I'm beyond exhausted. Plus, I'm dealing with jet lag. It was very difficult to be on vacation during 1st tri with 1 toddler and a baby.

I am SOOO exhausted and nauseous! I couldn't imagine those of you that are still nursing and getting up several times a night. That's one thing I am very happy I don't have to deal with this go around. I have started taking unisom in the evenings and have my B-6 but need to start using my DH's cutter so I can start taking those now. Hoping that will help. I am actually amazed with how I felt this morning when I woke up! So good compared to the last few weeks. I am having a hard time staying focused at work now too:(
