This is a vent. I know all of you ladies are experiencing the same thing, so I'm not alone, but it seems as though nobody else in my life understands what I am going through. I. Am. Exhausted. I sit at a desk all day and stare at a computer but by the time the day is over I am so tired I can barely function. I just want to sleep and have no energy for anything. I'm sure walking and exercise would help but I'm too tired to do that too! My husband said he didn't understand how I could be so tired and have no energy to do housework but somehow I had the energy to go eat Chinese. Um, who needs energy to sit down and stuff their face? My mom even said "I was talking to your dad about how tired you are and we just don't know if its normal. I don't remember being that tired at all." I reminded her that was 27 years ago and she probably doesn't quite remember her FIRST TRIMESTER. I had to go as far as to google first trimester fatigue and read it aloud. She then said "I know you just read that to me, but it seems like you are just more tired than that." ...The page I read is exactly how I feel. She is also a work out nazi and has told me 372 times that I need to exercise and I will feel better. I have to keep repeating that I understand I probably would, but I don't have the energy to do it in the first place! Why does nobody seem to understand that creating a person is exhausting??!! I can't wait to have energy back. I am hoping that the day my second trimester starts I will just magically be bouncing off the walls.
