I'm 20 weeks.
I've got friends coming at lunchtime I should be tidying/doing washing/doing a million things but instead I'm mn while my dd is watching the iPad I'm so tired- she slept last night so really don't have an excuse. I have no energy ATM at all- is it just me?

same here.

Leave it like it. Maybe your lovely friends will take pity on you and do your cleaning up for you grin

Not just you.... 30+5 here and I'm goosed, for no reason; I've not exerted myself, I went to bed early, had the usual 4-5 pee breaks and got up 10 hours after I went to bed.

I technically should be working at the moment but sat in my home office doing nothing.

I just cant get going, its awful!

It's not too bad so think my friends won't notice too much smile
I don't remember it being this hard last time until later on- impatience think 30+5 is a reasonable time to feel shattered smile

I'm the same. I'm only 9 weeks and have zero energy. Poor DS has just about gone feral - last seen helping himself to crackers and talking to his toy dog.

Wishful80sMontage Thu 23-Jul-15 10:33:55

Lol yellow. I could go for crackers myself.
First trimester I expected it- feel like shit and heave constantly-check!
3rd trimester- feel huge and shit- will do...
But this supposed to be my glowing time-no?! I've been robbed of any serene glow and it been replaced by an outbreak that could rival my 13 year old self and the inability to do anything bar watch dinner date and mn meh!

Hi Wishful,

I'm 20 weeks too and wondering where this myth of 'you'll feel really energetic in the 2nd trimester' comes from! I do feel less dog-rough, but I have to have a nap everyday at about 2pm or I can't function and cleaning the house has definitely become more optional than mandatory recently....

I am totally with you on this!

Ditto, 14+1 here. Didn't feel too bad tiredness-wise in 1st tri but paying for it now. Went to bed straight from work on Tuesday and didn't move again until my alarm went off on Weds morning!

BlueKarou Thu 23-Jul-15 13:48:43

10+1 here, and even on the nights when the new puppy allows me to sleep a full 8 hours I'm still shattered when I get up.

Am sat at work now sort of staring blankly at the computer, I know there's stuff I need to do, but I really could have a nap right now.

Occasionally I get gripped by a very real fear that I might never feel awake again! Or at least not until the mini-blobby thing is at least, I dunno, 5? 20?

I'm 40+1 with severe spd and very anemic. I need sleep but 6yo DS and 19 month old DD wont let me. I also need this baby to hurry up!

lauraa4 Thu 23-Jul-15 14:14:33

I'm 31+1 and since about 12pm have just felt like crawling under my desk and going to sleep sad

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Thu 23-Jul-15 14:30:28

I'm 35 weeks. I should be at work. I'm not. I'm lying in bed feeling shattered while my 65 year old mother paints the baby's room next door. blush

scarednoob Thu 23-Jul-15 14:34:42

I'm 29 weeks and supposed to be going for a quick walk post-lunch because of GD. you'd think I was asking myself to run a marathon sad

annatha Thu 23-Jul-15 14:40:27

Yes! I'm 23 weeks. I get little bursts of energy/time where dd is happy to play alone and I whizz around the house trying to get everything done and end up knackered for the rest of the day. We need to give the house a deep clean for Monday and I've got as far as making a list of jobs, but I can't be arsed to do any of them. Bleh.

Heidi122 Thu 23-Jul-15 14:44:02

Absolutely. I'm only 6 weeks but with my toddler running around and the first trimester fatigue I'm so exhausted and feeling guilty in not out doing this with the toddler (who has a lot of energy to burn).

Brummiegirl15 Thu 23-Jul-15 14:55:48

I'm 12+4 and desperate to crawl under my desk and go to sleep

I need to get that 2nd trimester energy from somewhere

kep1979 Thu 23-Jul-15 16:21:09

I'm 14+6 and totally with you - where's my glow/energy?? I'm currently horizontal on the bed, supposedly working from home, but with zero energy/brain power to achieve much of any consequence. So am going to have a nap until dh comes home and feeds me
