    Ohhh that horrid feeling. Mine went till exactly 12 weeks and it was literally like a switch. Woke up one morning and it was gone. and mine was pretty bad. i showed up at my gp's crying and told her if she didnt give me anything i would kill myself... she laughed, and gave me maxalon. and that just made me sleep for 3 days, so i stopped taking it and just did old fashioned remedies ie ginger tea and bics etc. I feel for you, before you know it it will be over just keep smiling...( if you can without puking)

    I know what you mean. I had never experienced fatigue like the fatigue I experienced during the first trimester of my first pregnancy. And no-one really understood either. They kept asking if I had morning sickness, but when I said I was exhausted they'd always say "Haha, just wait until the baby arrives!" Not helpful at all lol.

    I remember resting my head on my desk at work and struggling to keep my eyes open. I was just sooo tired.

    There wasn't much that helped. I kept taking my vitamin tablets and basically just came home from work, had dinner and went to bed. But when I hit 12 weeks, it was like a switch and I got my energy back.

    I think my doctor told me that fatigue generally subsides around week 12-14, around when the placenta 'takes over'.

    Second baby is tough too because you are starting from a lower energy base - particularly if your first is still young or very active. It is hard to get a rest.

    I am having a nap when my DS naps during the day and as pp said eating dinner and going straight to bed! I am 10w1d.

    The 8th week was the worst for me and I was 8d4d when I broke and saw the GP for help having spent 4 days in bed solidly. I got Maxolon for the puking and it was amazing. Worked perfectly.

    You are almost through the worst if it and it should start getting better/easier soon. Hang in there!

    I feel you. I'm 11 weeks and still struggling. So tired allll the time, still nauseous, still sore boobs, and woke up with a cold on top of it all! I think around week 12 it should start getting easier xx
