  • yes it is totally normal!!!
    with my first, i was a bus monitor, so during the day when we had no kids, i was allowed to take naps!!
    then my second, i was at a different job, and was working for a good family friend. he let me take naps too. haha
    now that we're on our third, i'm not working, but totally lacking in house work!!!

  • yup. somedays my big accomplishment was taking a 5 hour nap, even though I got 9 hours of sleep the night before. If you take vitamins, it helps with having extra energy.

  • I am the exact same way. I wake up b/c i'm hungry. I could sleep all day. My morning sickness has been fierce. I'm only 7 weeks, but hoping this goes away soon. We haven't told anyone yet, so it's hard to keep up my normal energy!

  • Yep, it's normal! There were weeks when I could hardly get off the couch.

  • LOL...You're growing a baby. Of course you'll be tired.:) It's hard work. :)

  • I'm 5 months and I can barely keep my eyes open all day long. I'm really tired too!! I'm guessing it's normal!
