Very tired, 17 weeks

Hello,
I am 17 weeks pregnant and very, very tired. I haven't managed to get much done today at work and am looking forward to collapsing (after DC1's bedtime), perhaps going to bed as early as 8pm. Does anyone else feel like this?

I do! I had a thread on it the other day. I'm 21 weeks, so tired no energy. You have my sympathy!

I did! I fell asleep at my desk at work after lunch one day blush

Im 20 weeks and tired all the time, im not anemic and ive tried all the tips ive read online (drinking lots of water, catnapping etc) but nothing makes any difference.

I'm 19 weeks and knackered too. I'm ok when I get up but then doing anything just completely wears me out. Thought second trimester were meant to be full of energy!!

I'm 19 weeks. I get up, have breakfast, go to work, have brunch, have lunch, come home, have tea, go to sleep. If I squeeze in a shower I'm doing well.

I spent pretty much all weekend in bed, bossing DH around. We've joked pregnancy has turned me into a Hobbit thlgrin

Normally, I don't need much sleep, never have done. Now, I could easily sleep 12 hours a night. This pregnancy lark has done me in. Only 5 months to go... confused

Yes, I feel the same. I'm 18 weeks tomorrow. I think I may feel slightly better today after a huge lay in on Saturday, but i'm definitely not full of second trimester energy!

Same at 20 weeks, currently lay in bed having my afternoon nap blush I'm so lucky that I'm studying from home atm but meant to be going back to classes soon…

I was a keen runner before pregnancy, now i can't even be bothered to unroll my yoga mat sad

Also, i haven't had the nice shiny hairand and long nails iI've heard is due in the 2nd trimester…but as long as baby keeps kicking away, i won't complain really!

Yes, it is awful, I had really hoped the tiredness would pass a bit ad it did seem to momentarily but now it is back with a vengeance.
Horrendous, no cures though I'm afraid!

Very reassuring to hear!

Other things I have are v. dry skin and an aversion to anything sweet! Does anyone else have this? DH bought some of my favourite ice cream and I just had a bowl and felt so sick. Yuk. Chocolates etc. I just can't stomach.

To be honest I wish I had an aversion to sweet! It's the other way round as I haven't got over my cravings for carbs since the early days and MS, so most my meals are carbs-based, mostly sweet unless I really really make an effort... But at least my aversion to vegetables during MS has started to died down, phewwwwww.
