Hi all, I'm feeling old and TIRED these days, and starting to wonder if its my age or just being mom to a six month old. I'm 38, will be 39 in September. (We started ttc when i was 35 and i took me two years to get pg with DS who is now 6 months). and lately I am feeling absolutely bone tired. I still do all the mom/baby stuff, but just about everything else (cooking, cleaning, laundry, exercise, returning emails and calls from friends) is falling by the wayside or really really delayed. For a couple months I was pretty energetic, but now I'm getting by on the bare minimum.
DS still does not sttn yet so I'm up with him every two to three hours over night nursing. We are starting to consider TTC #2, but to be honest, I'm so tired now I can't imagine having two. Am I just too old for this, or is this just six months of interrupted sleep catching up with me?
and did it get any better energy wise for you when your LO started sleeping through the night?
Thanks for your commiseration, ladies.
