Not complaining, just wondering. Feel strung out, although not exactly sleepy most of the time. Have a six year old and nearly three year old too and a supportive but very busy dh. Feel I should be coping better.

Call your GP. You might be anaemic.

YANBU to feel tired. My 3 are long past the baby stage and I'm still shattered most days! But you say you feel strung out, are you just finding everything a bit much? Again this is perfectly understandable with 3 dc. I find that making lists helps me feel more in control and I put everything on it even little things so I can feel like I've achieved something IYSWIM! sometimes I even write something on the list after I've done it just so I can cross it off

Have made appointment with gp. Diet might be key-must get something healthy to keep energy up. The house is getting me down-can't claw my way to the top of the mountain! Might be lack of personal space and adjusting to new levels of that that's hard at the mo. Makes me feel unrested even if not tired on the lacking sleep sense.

Agree with the anaemia possibility. Had that last year, was wiped out with tiredness before taking iron.
