Is it normal to feel very tired when pregnant at forty (expecting third child)?

Congratulations on your pregnancy! It is very normal to feel tired during the first trimester, and you probably don't have much time to rest having to care for two others. You should get your energy back soon :)

Yes, I guess this is pretty normal. I remember being fairly tired the first two times too...Thanks for your response- and all the best with your pregnancy!

I'm feeling better now. Thanks for the encouraging words. I actually found that staying fairly active made me less tired. Second trimester is a breeze as usual so far. I guess the forgetting about the tiredness is fairly common. At least I didn't have much morning suckness this time around...

Oh naps...that sounds awesome. I can't nap except weekends. But I find that I have really early nights. This will be my third child too...
