I am 11 weeks and just feel absolutly wiped out. The nausea is starting to pass a bit thank god, but i just feel absolutly shattered and i cant be bothered to do anything - does anyone else feel like this?

Think you would strugglr to find anyone bursting with energy at 11 wks! I would have slept through an earthquake at this stage with ds1, unfortunately didn't get the chance with this one (now 18 weeks). Extreme tiredness passed both times at 12 wks, just back to normal level of daily tirednes now!

I was the same from 8-12 weeks with both my pregnancies. Totally exhausted all the time. It passed around 12 weeks although the nausea stayed until 17 weeks sad.

The tiredness then hit me again the last 4 weeks, so top tip... get things done before that last month.

Mummytopebs - you could be me. Am 11+4 and have suddenly hit a wall of crippling tiredness. For the first time in this pregnancy, have had to take time off sick. Slept all afternoon yesterday and again when DS napped at lunchtime today.

I didnt have this with DS, and wonder if the heat from last week simply took it out of me...

But you are not alone, am counting down the days until my 12 week scan(6 days) and looking forward to my second trimester!

I am 14+3 and keep lying on the office floor. My colleagues think it's hilarious but sometimes the urge just overtakes me!

Oh, and I'm still throwing up. Good times.

Hello, ladies, Sorry, not really helping but thought I'd warn you it doesn't get much better the thirs trimerster.

I'm 31+4 days and not only has my morning sickness returned I'm soo tired by about lunch time all I can think about is my bed!

Hope you all start to feel better mid pregnancy! wink

I'm 39 + 2 and have just started to feel totally wiped out this week-

For the first time since conception I feel unable to go to the gym / swim - which doesn't fill me with confidence as I'm sure you're supposed to get a surge of energy before labour hmm

Hello im 7weeks and never felt so tired in my life! im sleeping 12hours at night and then 3ish in the afternoon! i feel so lazy!

itsalwaysthequietones Tue 07-Jul-09 18:11:47

I'm so other people feel the same. I'm 7 weeks and completely shattered. I fell asleep while drawing with poor DD today, she kept prodding me with crayons to wake me up. Just feel so lazy because even small tasks a real struggle. We have loads of stairs in our house and I just seem to be dragging myself up and down them all day with rubbish, washing and the like. I'm sure it wasn't like this last time!! I'm working tonight and have no idea how I'll stay standing

itsalwaysthequietones Tue 07-Jul-09 18:13:25

I obviously can't type either that should have been "so glad other people feel the same.... even small tasks feel like a real struggle..."

I rest my case

I'm 24 weeks and after six weeks of boundless energy after the nausea left me, I'm starting to feel utterly and totally exhausted. Very hard with two DCs needing attention, entertainment etc. Would be great to have a pregnancy nanny. Or a nannny! grin

audreyraines Tue 07-Jul-09 19:07:47

still feeling totally shattered at 31 weeks. could be that i seem to have chronic insomnia this pregnancy sad

muddle78 Tue 07-Jul-09 19:10:49

im 16 weeks and still absolutely exhausted. i sleep about 2-3 hours in the day and all through the night :-( i feel like im dragging myself around all day :-(

sazlocks Tue 07-Jul-09 19:14:07

me too - 11 + 3 and still feel wrecked. Not helped though by neighbours car alarm in the night and DS various nocturnal ramblings last week in the heat oh and constant night weeing ! Anyone else find that your brain goes into overdrive once you wake up so its hard to go back to sleep ?
Oh and I still feel and am being sick.
Happy days grin

laurawantsababy Tue 07-Jul-09 20:04:30

Im 10+3 and am napping every day. I have a 1yo dd and I find myself dropping off while she plays. She will come over and bash me on the nose to wake me up smile

I was wide awake at 4am this morning though - Not good.

l39 Tue 07-Jul-09 20:14:36

Me too. 25 weeks and feel more exhausted with this pregnancy than last time - which was twins! Even lying down doing nothing seems exhausting. I wonder if my bones will lose their shape and I'll become a pink puddle from sheer exhaustion!
No insomnia. I wake up feeling fine but within half an hour of getting up I'm exhausted again.

audreyraines Tue 07-Jul-09 20:55:24

sazlocks, i dread waking up in the night. i've been up since 3.30 this morning (well actually i just had a 1 hour nap when ds went to bed at 7.30) because that's when i woke up and could not go back to sleep! shock it is just so unreasonable.

I am 9 weeks now and starting to feel totally drained, it doesn't help that we have loads going on at the moment (working on a house move, lots of things on every weekend,...) and a toddler to look after too. I keep thinkin "can you just stop the world for a bit please so I can catch up/get some rest?".

audreyraines Wed 08-Jul-09 10:55:37

I know what you mean Inigo. I keep thinking I want to chuck a sickie. But toddler's don't stop for anyone's sickie. They still need a lot of energy (and still sometimes wake up 3 times a night like last night). feeling shattered!

I'm 8 weeks now and completely shattered most of the time, doesn't help that I picked up extra shifts before I realised I was pregnant so working 48hour weeks for the next six weeks. I could drop them I suppose, but I need the money to buy 'stuff' grin

I didn't expect to feel so tired this early on!

Southwestwhippet Fri 10-Jul-09 19:02:34

10 and 11 weeks was the point at which I started crying in the evenings because I was so tired I just couldn't cope anymore.

Now suddenly at 12 weeks I feel human again, it is like getting my life back! I'm still tired but it is managable.
