I have been so tired lately, I can't take a nap because I'm here at work I get 9hrs of sleep at night but I'm still very tired. What did you girl's do when you were in that stage? What helped?

How far along are you? And drinking minimal caffeine will most likely have no effect on the baby; I usually have to have a coke/candy bar sometime in mid-afternoon for a pick-me-up b/c I get too tired too. I'm only 9 weeks though.

 

HI ALEXIS - April 14

how many weeks are you.

 

Alexis - April 14

I'm 6weeks 3days, I try to drink a little bit of cofee but then it just makes me feel too hot.

Chocolate and most sodas also have caffeine if you could try one of those . . . but it has to be minimal, I think the "safest" amount of caffeine is like one 12-oz soda can/day.

Well I gonna tell you guys what my mother told me when I said I tired. You nah tired yet !!! ( Caribbean slang nah for not) which means there is a lot more to come. ENJOY!!!. Your energy does pick up in the second trimester. Please be careful with the caffeine intake I was told it can stop growth of the baby. Everything in moderation.

Don't you notice that it get's harder after lunch to stay awake. I can't stand being like this I know it's only going to get worse because as I get bigger I'll have more trouble moving around. ;) Do you have any kids yet?

No my first, and u? I do experience the cant stay awake after lunch as well. So far I have only gained 6 pounds. My b___st is bigger and fuller (they were not small before either). My belly is now poking out more. In the evenings all I want to do is sleep and lie down and be lazy.!!! I was told it gets better in the second trimester as you more energy. ( I am still waiting to feel that way )

Hey girls! Some days I am also so tired that I can barely even fix something for dinner. Some nights I go to bed at 7:30!! Everyone told me that I would be tired, but I never imagined this tired! I am nine weeks and I am waiting for the second trimester to begin so I can have some more energy. One thing that I have found that helps (but please check with your doctors first, mine said it was fine) is on nights that I am really tired, I take one tylenol pm. I sleep so much deeper and feel much better the next day. I think part of the tiredness is never getting a full nights sleep. I have to get up several times to go to the bathroom. At least when I take the tylenol, I can fall back asleep quickly and into a deeper sleep. Also, the more water I drink during the day, the less sleepy I am. I just make sure to limit my fluids after 7:00 to lessen the number of potty trips!
