Being tired is very normal in the early weeks.

With this pregnancy I'm pretty sure I slept more than I was awake in the beginning. I'm 27wks in and though I still could use a daily nap, it's not nearly as bad.

As my midwife put it, the older you get (even when you're young) and with children already depending on you, you're going to be much more tired than with your first pregnancy. 

Sounds about right.

Oh my gosh yes! That was my biggest symptom! And I'm still a very tired pregnant woman at 18 weeks.

Yep, welcome to the first trimester! 2nd one usually gets better. Then you're tired again in the 3rd one. Some people are tired the whole time.

I've been exhausted and I'm at 8 weeks. It's been a challenge. I've also had a lot of new aces. Weird ones too. Right now my biggest sore is what feels like a rotator cuff injury. I haven't done anything to hurt my shoulder. I hope it gets better on the second trimester.

I was tired as hell this entire pregnancy... so that's normal... the muscles hurting can be normal too because your bodies now producing diff hormones...
