When I was UTD with my DS I don't recall being as tired as I am now, it's ridiculous. I am currently 6.2w pregnant and my DS is 2 and very active. I'm a SAHM and there are times when I just have no energy to do stuff with him and feel so guilty. He's good at playing by himself most of the time, but not for long stretches and I can't expect him to do that. Has anyone been in this situation and what did you do?

Omg yes! I was exactly the same for the first 12 weeks with the baby I'm carrying now. I am 24 weeks now and much better. But man I was utterly exhausted. I was in bed no later than 7pm every night and pretty much laying down whenever possible. You'd think you'd feel that kind of fatigue much later in pregnancy wouldn't you? But the first trimester is the worst for tiredness for me without question. Don't feel guilty, you can't help it hon. Lay down and watch tv/movies with your toddler or read and stuff. I know it doesn't help right now but in a months time you will most likely be feeling much better

I don't have any advice but you may well be half way towards getting your energy back! The exhaustion, for me, seems to ease up around 12-14 weeks along (had it with both pregnancies) so hang in there!

I went to a craft shop and explained I need "stuff" to entertain 2yo DD and the only help I can give is from a lying position on the lounge using one hand. Ha.
I can home with pipe cleaners foam and other random stuff. That plus ABC2 was the only way I got through 4 weeks of extreme tiredness.
I found it worse than the tiredness of actually having a newborn.

I'm 7 weeks and have a 23 month old... He loves toy story ATM so I've been pulling that out of an afternoon, I prepare a plate with his favourite snacks on it and let him snack and watch the DVD while I have a quick nap on the lounge.... I do feel bad for him that I'm not doing much ATM so when I do have the energy I take him to do something he likes, duck pond, new park and occasionally monkey mania.
