Hi I just found out a week ago I'm pregnant with my third child ( I also have 2 step children) . We are very happy if some what surprised, but I am so tired, much more tired than I was with my other children, is this normal? I wish I could sleep all day. But if I'm not at work 2 days a week I'm home with a 3 year old. Oh and feeling sick on and off all day.
Our 3rd child was born 8 days before my 41st birthday. Tiredness is normal for early stages of pregnancy no matter what your age. And expected when you are running around after 2 other kids! I was very tired but I had 1 year old and a 4 year old to look after... and vomiting.... every day for 9 months. I think I am more tired now though with a 2 year old and 43.
I had my 2 children in my forties and felt fatigued throughout the first trimester (more so the second time around as i was looking after a 2 year old), but definitely felt more energised during the second and third trimester.
Overall, my pregnancies were healthy and I enjoyed them.
