19 Weeks & 4 Days: Where Did My Energy Go?

During the first trimester I had no energy at all. I'd come home and go almost straight to bed and on the weekends, I just snooze away. But right around 16-17 weeks my energy came blaring back and it was fabulous! I was outside pulling weeds, up and about cleaning the house, etc.

At first I thought that the excitement of the ultrasound, staying up late, putting in the new deck and completing our registry at Babies R Us was wearing me out. But now I am starting to think that isn't it - I am exhausted. I can barely keep my head up, my eyes hurt and I don't feel like doing much of anything.

Baby must be going through a growth spurt! This growing a baby business can wear a person out. :)

Hoping that my energy comes back soon - I still need to plant my cannas, glad and start the second garden. So tired....

I've taken "naps" after dinner 3 times in the last week. (I say "naps", because, really, it's mostly just going to bed early...) It's not like I'm active at my job- I sit in the same place all day. As you said- growing a person is hard work! And I was hoping it'd let up after the first trimester...

You will definitely have your ups and downs. I remember somedays I jsut wanted to stay in bed all day, but others I was great! Such an exciting time!

I agree with the PP that there are ups and downs. My entire 1st tri I was tired, but I had good and bad days during my 2nd. And now that I'm in my 3rd, I'm still good but I run out of steam quicker.

Enjoy the 2nd trimester!!
