So it begins...

Can't sleep!  Up since 3:30 am   I woke up early with my first pregnancy, which is fine, I guess...but then I pooped out super early in the day.  Makes it hard to spend quality time with the hubs, not to mention making it until 5:30 pm at work!  I take this as a good sign that my two little beans are sprouting and growing

Yeah this week has gotten rough on me - I had a hard time sleeping with the last one and that has started all over again. Don\'t know how I can be so exhausted but then have such a hard time falling asleep. Just make hubby get up with you and have breakfast :)

I was tired so much in the beginning as well. However,
I ended up getting some energy back.
Now 35 weeks with twins, I\'m exhausted, so I feel you!!! But YAY!! Best of luck..... It\'s such an amazon experience :)

I hear you.... I was exhausted most of the first trimester.... Listen to your body- rest when you can. I used to fall asleep on the couch at 7 and sleep through until 6am... Luckily at almost 16 weeks, I\'m getting my energy back!

I\'m so excited about your pregnancy!!! Hope all keeps going well. I had the same happen with H, but I always thought it was the progesterone shots.

I am so jealous of you guys getting your energy back. My husband calls me a lump. I sleep all the time, and I\'m 18.5 weeks. I have been dreaming more and getting up a few times overnight to pee. So I wonder if the overall quality is down so the quantity is up. I blamed fatigue on the progesterone shots, I\'m on them 16-36 weeks.

The weird thing is I haven\'t felt overwhelmingly tired yet...is it still too early? (8 weeks?) I fall asleep fine, but don\'t sleep well and wake up early. I get sleepy in the afternoon, but it hasn\'t been really bad yet, not even today and I\'ve been up for 16hrs! I\'m sure it\'ll hit soon enough. They say twins are supposed to just wipe you out. Maybe my energy comes from that I exercise and eat really healthy. I didn\'t do that in my first pregnancy. But I have been doing crossfit and eating paleo since last March. Who knows!?!
