That's how Stephen used to say tired and now we all say it that way.

And that's how I feel. Ugh. Just tired all the time, and can't get enough sleep. It's like the first trimester all over again, minus the nausea and the desire to scratch out the eyes of everyone who annoyed me (which was pretty much everyone back then). I spent a great few weeks in the last couple months where everything was great! I felt great! I had energy left over to spare and the skies were blue and little birdies circled my head singing as I walked along. Now it's all I can do just to keep my eyes open while driving or talking or eating. I know what you're thinking...yes, I know I'm growing a person and all, and I do remember feeling this way in my last pregnancies, but only in the last few weeks and I still have a good 10 weeks to go in this one. And the thought of spending 2 more months like this, only to transition in to the exhaustion that accompanies having a newborn in the house...well, it makes me want to cry. Or shrivel up and hide.


And that is all.

I'm so sorry to hear that you're so tired. There is nothing more exhausting than taking care of other people while growing another one. I hope you can get some rest soon!

Been MIA for a while- didn't have my bookmarks from the desktop on the laptop.

Have they checked you for anemia? I was severely anemic in my last trimester with this last pregnancy, and I was totally wiped out and out of it and falling asleep if I just sat down to fold laundry or waited in the car for the kids to come out from school or sitting at a redlight.

You might want them to check that out. It's a miserable feeling, I know! Get some rest, girly. :)

i know girl (and you know I do!) its SO hard. We are a few years older each time and we have more responsibility than the last time (and less naps!). Hang in there, its so worth it!
