I can't remember a time when I wasn't tired.
And it seems like there's always a reason for it, but I wonder if other people feel like this too - and, if so, if it ever disappears?
First I had DD.
Then mild PND was the reason given to me by the dr for why I was still tired almost a year on.
We started TTC again when she was about 7mths old, and went through 15 treatment cycles of Clomid, FSH, and then IVF (as well as time spent naturally) - so the drugs/ treatment/ emotional toll took it out of me.
Now I'm coming up for 31 weeks pregnant, and have a very lively toddler - so that's a good excuse...
But I seriously feel tired ALL the time! I go to bed around 7.30-8pm most nights, and usually sleep until 6am (unless I need the loo in the night).
At the weekend I get to sleep in one day, although I can never sleep for that long in the morning.
So... I feel like I shouldn't be THIS tired. My OB did blood tests for thyroid/ iron, etc., and everything was normal.
I feel like when the baby is born I'll be at the bottom of my reserves - which is not a great way to start things!
Does anyone else feel like this and, if you HAVE felt like this, did it ever get better? When?!!!
I used to play sport all the time, work full time, and always be up for late nights/ nights out. Now I have zero energy. I even feel like a dumbed down version of myself some of the time. Sometimes I can't even think of anything to say - which is definitely not like me at all. When we go on holiday I just feel exhausted. I wish I could go back to how I used to be and feel!
