  • Its normal, your body is getting use to making another person, it usually gets better in the 2nd trimester but sometimes comes back in the 3rd. Tell your husband next time he can have the baby!

  • I was just the same way when i was 13 weeks. It gets a little better the further along you are. I'm almost 20 weeks and i'm still that way at times.

  • Me, I did! I was so tired all the time. I read somewhere that growing a baby uses more energy a day then climbing Mt. Everest! I don't know if that is really true but sounds right to me! lol Since you are 13 weeks I would say in the next couple of weeks you should get some energy back and not be so tired for at least a little while.

  • Yup, and I didnt get over that till around 23ish weeks and then it came back around 33 weeks. I was always so tired. I would go to bed around 8:00pm and sleep till 6am to get up for work. I would get home from work around 3:45 and take a nap or two before bed. Tell your husband that you are not crazy and for him to try to create can drain anyone.

  • You are creating life, that is hard work for your body. If you can sleep, then sleep. It's harder to get those naps when you have your second and third child.

  • the baby is sucking the life outta you! lol it's totally normal to feel this way. some women feel like this more than others, but it's nothing to worry about if you do feel exauhsted! I felt this way as well.....
