    Do you always feel tired regardless of how much rest you get?

    and is this what having children does to you?!!

    I've had m.e. in the past, but this is different to the fatigue I felt with that. I just often feel tired and like things are too much effort.

    Elliot sleeps through the majority of the time now, and I do get time to myself, but get really frustrated that I often feel too tired out by the evening to cook or other such things, hence why I cooked today's dinner at midday!!

    Anyone else?

    Yes, i usually have a nap still. But i think that might be because my iron is low

    Yes but then I always did before. 

    I think looking after a child is mentally draining, they need 11/12 hrs sleep a night for a reason!  Laugh

    When you're mentally drained it affects you physically.

    For example, Mon & Tues this week I've picked up D from SIL's then headed home and he's pretty much gone to sleep for 1.5/2hrs, no fuss.  I have loads of energy.

    Today he did not want to go to sleep as he was soooo overtired and screamed and I was sitting in my bedroom in between going in and out of his room thinking 'I could go to sleep right now' but I had to make his dinner.  He didn;t really settle so had him downstairs with me where he continued to be grouchy because he was tired.  H is now putting him to bed and I'm knackered.

    Absolutely. In fact you know the 'sleep when they sleep' thing everyone says when you have a newborn.... I still do it now he's nearly 2! Embarrassed

    It was worrying me a bit actually as I just feel so physically exhausted all the time. I can't even blame it on him not sleeping as he's slept through the night since very young!

    I find I can always sleep but then I always could. I do feel the difference though - especially when I've been really busy

    Yes.  All the time!  I always tell myself I will have an early night but inevitably I end up either Hitching or doing my crafts.  It's the only real time I get totally to myself so I don't want to waste it.  I did go to bed at 9.30 last night but actually feel worse today.  Urgh.

    I must admit though I am fed up of feeling knackered all the time too but resigned myself to feeling like this now for the next 18 odd years...

    I'm exactly the same!  I get a second wind once D is in bed!

    WHavanaBabyS.

    I sometimes feel more tired if I start to catch up on sleep - I think I then realise how sleep deprived I am...

    I do at the moment but it's 1st tri exhaustion. Before that I had spells of being energetic as F is quite a good sleeper. But I don't think I've felt properly rested or had a whole day without a spell of being very tired since falling pg with F
