Still waiting for that "burst of energy"...

Hey everyone!  This is my first post here.

I'm 19 weeks with my 1st, and am still finding myself groggy and exhausted every day.  I get home from work and take an hour nap almost everyday - on the weekends, I'll take 2 hours.  I still need to be wary of how much energy I expend because I know that I'll pay for it the rest of the day.  Which means the only exercise I've been able to get is taking my dog for a 2-3 mile walk everyday.  Which is lovely, but at this point I was kind of expecting to feel almost back to my old self at least for a while.  I have been looking forward to getting back to the gym and/or running, and working in the yard, etc etc... but NOPE!  I get about 20 minutes into my yardwork and I have to go back inside for a breather.

Anyone else having this problem??  Or does anyone have any words of advice?  DH has been totally supportive, and keeps telling me that it's normal for me to be tired, since I'm, you know, making a human, but I still can't help but feel completely useless!

Thanks everyone!
