    is this normal? My sister reckons i have gestational diabetes.... she thinks she knows everything...

    but basically yesterday at 2pm i fell asleep till 5pm then went back to sleep at 9pm right through till 7 am then back to sleep at 11am and slept through till 4pm.
    I am on nights and thought i would be ok as i have just slept like a tramp but i am shattered already!

    I slept a lot during my first trimester with my son. I worked Mon-Friday 9-5, & as soon as I got home, I would head straight to bed, wake around 10ish for a bowl of cereal, then sleep til 7 the next morning.

    Oddly enough, this time around I feel awesome!

    I sleep A LOT. At night usually 12 full hours and then I take naps during the day. :)

    A few days before I got my + up until now (6+1 today) I can't get thru the day without at least a few hours sleep and I sleep about 9-10 hours every night. I work 3 days a week and the days after I work because I don't get to have my nap I usually have 2 sleeps for about 2-3 hours at a time the next day.

    Your body is going thru a lot of changes...it is growing a teeny tiny baby so no wonder we're all so exhausted!!!

    Its great that you're just going with it...no need to fight it, your body obviously needs the rest.

    I don't think GD would even kick in this quickly but talk to your OB about it at your 1st appt.

    Totally knackered is how I've felt. I dont sleep very well at night and I can never sleep for longer than 5 or 6 hours. At work, I'm on my feet all day constantly walking around with a half hour break and I do that 5 days a week. I always fall asleep on the bus and I've missed my stop a few times lately :rofl:

    I am sleeping a lot as well. Well I get up fairly early and have breakfast. About 30-60 minutes later I need to lay back down and usually sleep about 2 hours. I am very sleepy early in the evening but usually try to fight it and then toss and turn for awhile before being able to fall asleep at night even though I feel exhausted.

    I pretty much slept my way through 1st tri! it passed in a blurry sleep world!!!
    Its normal to feel really tired as much as it is to feel totally wide away and bouncing (grr at you lucky few!)

    On average I slept 9pm to 9am, up for hour back to bed 10am to 12 then back to bed 2-4 then managed to stay awake (just for the evening!)

    Ive only just managed to get some energy back recently and Im 18 weeks now!

    I slept and slept and slept some more the weekend before I found out I was pregnant (AF would have been due on the Tuesday following). I was blaming it on having a late night on the Friday night but it was worse.

    It does seem to have calmed down a bit now though. I'm getting tired earlier on a night, and falling to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow which I never normally do.
