.... and exhausted. The next book I read that tells me I should be enjoying a second trimester energy burst will get thrown in the bin. Seriously.
I am still loving being pregnant and love seeing my belly grow, but wow, I have never been this tired in my life. On my days off I am managing to nap for 5 or 6 hours during the day and still sleep for at least 9 hours at night. At least I am getting good sleep most nights. I generally only wake up once or twice. I am hoping that I get some of my energy back before the third trimester, I'm not sure if I will be able to work up until 36 weeks if I get any more tired than this.
On a positive note, I am feeling the baby move all of the time. Whenever I sit down on the couch or lie down in bed he starts to kick. I also feel him moving most days whilst I am sitting at my computer at work. I love it! The Big Man has felt him a handful of times as well, the baby seems to have got over his 'daddy shyness' and will give Sean a good kick if we poke him or talk to him. The Big Man feeling a kick for the first time was a huge milestone for me and I think I managed to cry and laugh at the same time.
Hopefully I will keep getting a good nights sleep and get some energy back in the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed!
