Do you feel tired all day? If you have other kids at home,what do you do?

I am 24 weeks and 5 days pregnant and all I seem to want to do is sleep. I don't have any kind of schedule or routine to speak of. I have my dd home with me all day and feel like I'm not spending enough time with her.

  • My 3yo just watches TV if I can't stay awake any longer (it's what I did with my older kids when I was pregnant with the 3yo, too). But I have never felt I had to spend tons of time entertaining my kids. We always all just do our own thing (ever since they were toddlers). They've never complained. When they need attention they come to me (except when I'm sleeping...they know to leave me alone).
    Today I tried so hard to stay awake because my 3yo had school at 1pm and my husband was on his way home. I didn't want to fall asleep and have her miss school. I was barely functioning and my husband told me to go to bed and screw school, lol. He got home about 40 minutes before she had to leave and crashed until the older kids got home at 2:30pm.
