    Just coming up for 7 weeks, and I am soo the same. I have a 2.5yr old who has no concept of mummy resting either!

    I hit upon what might be a good idea today though. I'd hit the 'so tired I think I might cry' point in the afternoon, so I suggested to her she got her cuddly animals and came into my bed with me and watched Dora on TV.

    She thought Christmas had come early! I put 2 episodes of Dora on, and slept throughout them. Even better, she put her head on my chest and we had a lovely cuddle too.

    Probably not 'recommended parenting 101', but I figured it was better than lying on the kitchen floor and crying...

    I am 5 and 1/2 weeks and I am exhausted. If I didn't want to eat really well at the moment I think I would be going to bed without dinner - but I figure one of the only things I can control right now is my nutrition so I force myself to cook and eat a proper dinner.
    I thought I was feeling good this morning till someone at work came up to me very concerned asking if I was ok because I looked so tired!!! At least I could blame it on being Friday!!

    So much for that pregnancy glow!!!! LOL!

    From memory, it got better around 12 weeks with last preg. This preg, I started getting incredibly exhausted at 6 weeks, I'm 9 weeks today. I work part time and have a one yr old who has just learned to walk and RUN in the last fortnight and I'm exhausted. When not working, I sleep twice a day coinciding with his nap routines, I sleep about 10 hrs at night, but just can't seem to get any energy back.

    Our bodies are constructing crucial cells right now! Making a spinal cord and neural pathways. Apparently one day the foetus has no toenails for example, and then, bam, the next day, baby has toenails! That's why sometimes u wake in the morning after a full nights sleep, but you don't feel like you've actually HAD a full nights sleep. Our bodies have NOT stopped building.
