I am 5 weeks pregnant and the fatigue started a few days ago. I literally feel like I could sleep all day long. I take a short nap while my 2 year old is taking his afternoon nap. When it comes time to go to bed...I'm wide awake! Plus I can only sleep for a couple of hours and I'm up again. It's really frustrating!! Anyone else had this problem? How long did it last? I feel like I'm running on empty!
