    How long did it last? I'm starting to get depressed with it because I can't get anything done, hope it passes soon

    Mine got better at about 14 weeks. Hang in there, growing a bubba is hard work.

    Totally normal. I'm nine weeks also and tired and was like this with DS1. As PP said, give it until about 14 weeks and things should improve.

    I started a thread a few years back when pregnant with dd asking the same thing (I was 14wks at that stage and still struggling terribly)

    I'm closing in on 12wks now and finding I'm feeling a *little* better. It was a case of letting the tv babysit in the afternoon as I was just so exhausted. I'm still tired but we got out for a walk this afternoon so things are obviously looking up! Finally

    I had it from 5-11weeks. I'd nap at work between 12-2pm, come home at 4.30 and have another nap, just to get up and eat dinner then go back to bed for the night.
    Weekends were spent on the couch or in bed!
    It'll pass soon, hang in there.

    About 12 weeks it starts to get better. 2nd trimester was a breeze compared to the 1st.

    yes the 1st trimester is a total write off for me - all three babies! I was completely out, taking at least 2 naps and still needing to nap before bed. it gets better after 14 weeks, hang in there and try to get rest. your body is busy! x
