Life is Grand!!!

I don't know what is up with me. I'm tired all the time. Last night I was in bed before 11 (which is quite an accomplishment for me!), I got up around 6:30, but was exhausted by 8am. I rested on the couch for most of the morning while oldest boys played right next to me. Then I took an afternoon nap while the boys were napping. After all that, I'm still tired. And it's not like I ever sleep too much during the day since I'm still sleepy after no naps. So I'm not sure what to do. Do I go to bed even sooner? Do I limit my napping/resting to an hour a day? Do I hibernate for the rest of the winter?

Btw, after yesterdays comments, it sounds like I'm not alone...that most women to the same thing I do. We love to move around furniture! I don't feel so alone now, thank you!!!

You have to nap test the couches in their new locations!

I read somewhere authoritative that if you miss sleep, do not nap. Just go to bed at your regular time the next night, otherwise your sleep patterns get all screwed up.

I find the more I rest or sleep, the more tired I feel. Excercise helps me sleep at night and it gives me energy. I noticed I was feeling more and more tired over the holidays, and the only thing I changed was the fact I quit my excersise routine.... it got to be a pain in between the holidays food jaunts! haha

I hope you can rest better, so you feel better!

My advice. Excercise. I hate even uttering that word, but a 10 minute walk can really recharge my batteries.

I don't care what time I go to bed..if I have to be up by 6:30, I would be through! But I think that is the pregnancy speaking.

could you be expecting???
if you need a nap, your body is telling you you're tired, but you're too busy to listen. you might still be catching up after the holidays, i say pull up a pillow and get some rest.

I'm not a lurker, do I get to post anyway?

If the tiredness keeps up, there's no harm in getting your blood checked. I had wicked high TSH after Tiernan was born, which meant my thyroid was hardly functioning. I just assumed I was tired all the time because I had four kids!

Anyway, it's just something to keep in the back of your head in case you need it later :-)
