Somebody lied about my energy coming back

Postby linylee » Thu Nov 06, 2014 5:33 pm

I am 15+ weeks and I have yet to get any "burst" of energy. In fact I am flat ass exhausted. At around week 13 and 14 I was up 7-8 times a night peeing. ( even when I stopped fluids early ). Now that has eased and it is back to normal 3-4 times a night to pee. With that said, I wake up tired. Get exhausted by noon and can't keep my eyes open by 3pm. Even with a little caffeine in the mornings and afternoon to pep me up.
I'm tired of be tired. When does it end? Is there hope? Does anyone have any suggestions to stay awake during the day. Maybe I am missing something.

I have no wisdom to bestow upon you. I'm exhausted. lol Just about 15 weeks, and I get to 3pm, and I'm shot. Balancing carbs and protein is supposed to help, but damned if it works for me. :/

My favorite part of all of this - bedtime comes, and I can't sleep. :doh:
I'm also getting baby brain already. I swear to god, when I made my coffee today, I put the spoon in the refrigerator and was putting my creamer in the sink, when it hit me - I'm crazy. lol

Same here - I'm more tired now than in the 1st tri! Could do with a nap at about 3pm every day which unfortunately isn't always possible. I just keep reminding myself that at least I don't feel sick anymore. And yep, I have trouble sleeping at night too, especially if I have to get up to pee!

I'm so glad there are others suffering along with me.

Last evening I felt a couple very sharp pains on the inside of my cervix. Then again this morning, it woke me up and continued until I got to work. I figured since it was a pain in my cervix I should call the DR. They had me come in right away, which made me nervous!!!!!

She said it was just my baby boy kicking away and letting me know what was to come in the future. Holy Moly!

oh ya- I lay awake at 8pm waiting for sleep to come and then get up early because I can't sleep anymore.
Then inevitably the cycle starts all over again.

Not to be pessimistic but it might never come back. My mum said she was tired the whole way through and my experience so far at 20 weeks is that I've been pretty consistently tired. Sometime I feel like I have energy so I get excited and do something a little more strenuous than usual (workout, intense cleaning session, etc) and them I'm back to being exhausted...
Oh and I can't sleep either. At night and in the morning if I try to go back to sleep on the weekends for example, it just doesn't happen...

My energy levels come and go, and a lot of the time energy to get a lot done but my pregnancy brain is so bad that I can't even focus to get one task completed!! :-) You will always feel slightly more tired than usually because well you are growing a human! In your late second tri/third tri you will start nesting and that is always fun for me, you go crazy cleaning and organizing everything in your house, sometimes doing the same thing more than once lol. Hopefully you will get at least a little more energy soon, but yes not to be a downer but you may want to get used to it! That baby will keep you up A LOT :D

I seriously have more energy while caring for a newborn than I have right now. The fatigue wasn't this bad with my other two. But then again, I'm older this time, and I have two kids to run after! :P
