Feeling lazy, worn out and unmotivated

Hi all

Just wondering if I'm the only one? I'm so tired all the time, I can barely move from my bed most days because it seems so much effort. I manage to do some tidying up every couple of days... Cooking or going out are such a big deal and take a lot of convincing

Also should I be worried about a cold/cough/headache that won't shift? Thanks all

Sounds like the normal first trimester symptoms. Your almost 2nd trimester and you will feel so much better and more energized in the next couple weeks

Yes I feel the same! Dragging myself out of bed for work in the mornings is almost impossible! I get home and just crash on the sofa! Most nights I'm in bed for 8pm, but still feel exhausted the next morning as if I haven't slept! Can't wait for that burst of energy we are supposed to get during 2nd tri

Totally feel the same, getting up for work every day is a struggle.

Totally! I somehow manage to get through the week, working and looking after my little boy then come the weekend I'm just a waste of space! Just so tired, everything feels like a struggle just now. To tip it off I feel like I'm not being fair to my LO as I don't have to energy/motivation to really play with him or take him anywhere. It will pass in a few weeks hopefully but it is irritating just now!

Exhaustion has been my biggest symptom since I found out I was pregnant. My OH works night and normally takes a nap at about 8 o'clock. He now laughs because I go to bed with him. I'm then out until the alarm goes off the next morning. Weekends mean nap time. I teach kindergarten and all I want to do is take a rest when my students do. Now that the all day morning sickness has kicked in I feel even less motivated!

I'm right there with you. I have been sleeping and lying on the sofa all weekend, every weekend, and I'm still completely exhausted.

Getting out of bed on weekday mornings is torture. I do home childcare for a living, and I feel like I'm really slacking off - just doing the basics and watching the clock until they go home and I can nap!

I can't wait until this eases up.

I'm right there with you.. I'm working on my BA online and I'm even taking a few weeks off because I'm so tired I can't even get motivated enough to do the work! I REALLY hope I get more energy as I approach the second trimester, I feel so lazy!!!
