Hi ladies, did or is any else exhausted at 2 months pregnant? I'm constantly tired ! But I have to work to cover the bills as my husband can't do it alone ...

Yep, the exhaustion during 1st trimester is something else! My last few weeks of 1st trimester I took annual leave every Friday, as I was finding 5 days weeks difficult and would let’s literally spend all weekend in bed not being able to do anything. It doesn’t matter how much you sleep, it never goes away!

Good news is this generally wears off in 2nd trimester. I’m 22 weeks now and have a lot more energy and can function properly. I am going to enjoy it while it lasts 😂

Yeah I was exhausted it did get better once I hit 12 weeks I seem to have more energy so hopefully that will be the same for you

Yes I was far more exhausted then than I am now at 21 weeks. You really do just have to go with the flow and rest when you can rather than fighting it.

Glad I'm not the only one ! I guess growing a whole human can be tiring!

I was shattered in my first tri. Both working full time but my husband picked up almost all of the domestic drudgery including all shopping. I was working from home because of the lockdown so tried to nap, if I could, but otherwise was in bed by 9.30pm every night for a few weeks. It got so much better though, hope it will be the same for you.

That’s me Right now ! In bed by 900pm that’s how tired I am. And right now I’m babysitting for someone so looking after two children one is 2 and one is 4 while the parents work from home upstairs I’m exhausted!

Pregnancy is exhausting. The first trimester was really bad and I was so glad when it eased up and I felt 'normal' again but I'm 30 weeks now and it's back!
