Anyone else hit second trimester and suddenly been hit by exhaustion!? I felt fine during the first about 13 weeks, not too tired but these last two weeks I have been wrecked! I thought we were meant to feel fabulous by now
Anyone have any suggestions on how to beat it? My OB reckons it's the heat (I'm in QLD) but I work in air con and am very liberal with the air on at home, take multivitamins with iron and eat well. I do work full time, but DH is carrying the burden at home with housework bless him! Arrrgh I just want to sleep sleep sleep!

I've just hit the 2nd trimester and i'm feeling more tired than ever.Still heaps thirsty too.I tested my bgl on my daughters meter and it was in normal range.Weird i think.Hate the feeling of constantly being thirsty though.I have my 1st hospital appointment Friday so i'll guess i'll talk to the midwife then.

Yep! Im 16 1/2 weeks and still very tired and feeling sick most days
So depressing, by 13 weeks with DS I was feeling fantastic!

The first tri was the worst but I do have good and bad days now at 16 weeks.
Having to run around after a 22 month old very active toddler who doesn't sleep at all during the day is making things so much harder. The days are so long, all I want to do is crash out on the lounge or have a nap myself and it's just not an option because the energiser bunny is bouncing off the walls and is still at that age where he needs constant supervision (and stimulation).
No family or other support nearby so this exhausted preggo princess has to "suck it up and deal" each day. Whinge over
TBH it was actually easier with my first pregnancy to be able to go to work every day. So much easier to slack off and bludge about pretending to work if I felt like it, which I usually did. Toddlers are very demanding bosses.

It all depends on how well I sleep at night. Slept badly last night so exhausted today. Yesterday I was feeling great.
Still most of the MS is now gone, still feel a little yuck in the evenings but not too bad. This time I am WAY better than the first. I'm 15 1/2 weeks now and feel pretty good most of the time, with first pregnancy I was still having all day MS at this point.
I do understand now why people used to say they'd go to work for a rest, being home with a toddler is non-stop. There's no slacking off at your desk for awhile or popping out for a quick coffee, a coffee means having someone attached to my leg while I make and drink it! Still being is mum is the best job ever so wouldn't change it for anything.
