~ Soooo Tired
This week hasn't brought on much new in the actual pregnancy front. No doctors appointments, no morning sickness, no nothing.
The only thing that still seems to be getting to me is how tired I am. I remember being tired in the early weeks of pregnancy with the twins as to be expected. By the 12th or 13th week I was over it and I felt great. I was 29 years old then. With Ethan's pregnancy, again I experienced being tired in the beginning until around the 14th week or so. Then it passed and I again, felt pretty good. I was 36 years old then. This go around I'm at week 16 and I still feel like I can hardly keep my eyes open.
In the morning when Ethan naps, I usually do too. In the afternoon when all the kids nap, I usually do too. At night after everyone goes to bed, I am usually up until at least 11pm. That has always been "me" time to watch TV or get on the computer or read. My husband goes to bed when the kiddos do because he has to be at work at 3:30 am. So it was always a nice time for me to just do things that I enjoy without having to be a mommy or a wife. Well, I just can't seem to say awake past 9pm. As soon as I settle onto the couch ready to watch a show on TV, I wake up an hour and half later and realize that I crashed once again. It's getting to be ridiculous. In the morning when I wake up, having slept well all night, I have to drag myself out of bed because I'm still sleepy.
So, I am not sure if it's just because I am older at 37 or if it is because I now have a toddler to run after during the day and it just drains me more or what . . . but I sure will be glad when I get a bit of energy back. I am usually an "on-the-go" type of person, so it's driving me mad.
Hopefully in the next week or so, it will pass. I'm not sure how much longer I can take it. I feel guilty for not getting hardly anything done and I have a lot to do!
Until next time . . .
