    Default 8 week & could sleep for a week!

    I am so exhausted, beyond anything I have ever experienced! I have easily napped for 2.5 hours every day of this weekend. I don't remember being like this with my dd. 😫

    Me too! I literally feel like I'm dragging myself around all day. It's been so much worse this time around, I remember being tired with DD but nothing like this.
    My iron has just come back low so I've started taking supplements, have you had yours tested? Apparently iron stores get depleted more with each subsequent child.
    Doesn't help that DD has had gastro all weekend so I've been up with her 😷
    Hope things pick up for you soon.

    Very normal. It does get better though.

    @PinkTutu oh me too, I don't sit down on the couch I groan and let myself fall down onto it. I get out of breath climbing stairs and feel like I have 10 kilo weights on my arms and legs! My first pregnancy was pretty easy and this one has been a hard slog already and I'm only 18 weeks along. Still hoping for second trimester relief to kick in..............

    I presume my iron would have been checked with my initial blood test. Will mention it to my ob on Friday. Hope your dd is on the mend.
