i know how you feel, so exhausted all the time. im 22 weeks now, and i have had the iredness non stop since 9 weeks. theres not much that can really be done about it. have you had your iron levels checked? mine were fine, i just need to have a rest when i need it and eat when i need it etc, and just try and ride it out

I was going to suggest the same as Natalie -- make sure they test your iron. I was low, and was very tired, too. Now I'm on supplements, which seem to help some.

I am a little over 20 weeks. I stay exhausted. If I could sleep through these 9 months I would. I love to sleep. Nothing seems to be wrong... I a__sume its normal. Your body is working overtime... extra weight, extra blood...extra stress...lol....your horomones will wear a woman out, ya know??? It sucks...hopefully itll eventually go away.

I'm almost 27 weeks and I went for a walk last night, well maybe I was waddling a little bit :) I'm still tired today, I can barely keep my eyes open and I don't think sleeping at work is acceptable here, I wish! I do countdowns for the weekend because then I can sleep all I want, only two more wake-up days left until I can sleep in and be lazy.....

I am 16 weeks, and I am completely exhausted too. I don't have the energy to do hardly anything...I nod off at my desk every day at work, and I never have the energy to do anything I need to do like housework...Like Beth said, I count down the days until the weekend, when I don't have to get up and come to work....But I still don't get to sleep that late on the weekends, so I never seem to be able to get caught up on any sleep. I also can't take naps. I feel like I will be tired for the rest of my life!

Im 26 weeks and counting lately i've been changing things around like my daughters room my bed room want to do the bathroom over things like that---i think they call it the nesting stage?? don't get me wrong on my days off from work i sleep untill i can't no more but then of course i have long nights were my brain can't sleep because i'm thinking about everything---and of course my baby likes to move around in the middle of the night so that keeps me up----but hey you have to enjoy it cause we are all due one day! then we can laugh about it......good luck moms
