When do energy levels come back?!


Iím 11+5 and still no energy, I wake up tired, get my eldest to school and do some housework. I plan to do so much with my day but Iím literally exhausted after an hour and have to lie down, then sometimes I have to have a nap! Working days are hard but I am lucky Iím self employed and 50% of my Work is done on the laptop. although I already canít wait for bed time tonight. I just have so much Iíd like to sort out but zero energy. I know I need to listen to my body but how long does this usually last? I canít remember with my other 2 but Iím hoping not long.

Hi hun im 10+3 and im exactly the same, by the time ive done morning school run and house work im shattered. I wasn't like this with my last 3 so hopeing my energy picks up soon. Ive put it down to my age (33) & running round after a 2 year old,dealing with a hypo 6 year old and 10 year old who thinks shes 15 lol. Ive read in different places things "pick up" at around 12 weeks, but hey every pregnancy is different.
All i know is...im moody,really tired and most days i really,really cant be bothered! Lol big hugs xx

My energy came back somewhere in early second trimester I think. I was home for a big extended family celebration around 13 weeks and found that tiring, but it might have been from traveling and then having a packed schedule with lots of people for several days in a row. After we got home I remember noticing within a week or two (so 14 or 15 weeks) that I felt like myself again. In fact for a lot of second tri I had to remind myself I was even pregnant. I don't have any other kids though so I feel like that helps.

I hope you both start feeling more energetic soon!

I'm 10w6d an exactly the same, exhausted all the time. It's definitely not being helped that DS has had us up the last couple of nights from 4am! Im hoping the pregnancy fatigue will ease off soon but if I remember correctly it took until about 15 weeks with DS before I felt normal.

I'm starting to feel better now, a few weeks ago I kept falling asleep on the sofa after a day at work and putting the kids to bed, my energy levels are definitely improving

Thank you ladies, I hope you all start to feel better too! It certainly isn’t easy! Ahh LynAnn I bet that’s awful! I’m lucky my 2 are fine at sleeping so I suppose I should count myself lucky they’re sleeping when I need them to!

Mrsma that’s exactly how I’m feeling atm, I can’t wait for it to pass, fingers crossed it does!

Thanks again girls!

Generally at 18 years when they move out of home.

But honestly, the first trimester is the hardest. Sleeping feels like a full-time job. I've been exhausted right through this one but I also fell pregnant when DS3 was 6 months old. Around 18-22 weeks you should start feeling a little better.

I went to bed last nigt at 9.30, DS woke up at 5 am but DH took care of him and got him back to sleep. We got up for the day at 7am and I'm already feeling like I could go for a nap. The first trimester tiredness is real! Can't wait to be back to normal energy levels! Hope everyone else that's struggling gets back to normal soon!

I think i was exhausted all the way through but i think the fog lifts around 16 weeks and then comes back in the 30's weeks!
