  • Nah, some people are tired the whole way through! I actually went through a very tired phase around weeks 20-25. I felt exhausted but couldn't sleep. I found that one of the culprits was the tiny bit of caffeine I was drinking, even in the early evening. I"ve had to cut out all caffeine consumption in the evening, but now that I'm 34 wks. the exhaustion is back.

  • I am 16 weeks and still fatigued... I am student teaching and working as well as caring for my two (4 and 6) dd's.... usually the more active I am the less tired I get but right now I get up to do one thing and feel like I am done for the day.... sigh... also not sleeping well at all... only have caffeine in morning or at lunchtime.

  • i was tired until the day i delivered and i didnt have another child to care for. creating a life sucks everything out of u. take naps if u can, go to bed a little earlier at night, eat right, all i can recommend
