20 weeks pregnant and pooped.

Afternoon, everyone. I am new to Circle of Moms and this is my first ever post....

I'm 20 weeks pregnant with my second child (our 1st is 2.5yo) and I am absolutely pooped. I thought the second trimester was supposed to be the best, but this time around for me has been hellacious. I work 40 hrs/week (and commute approx 8 hrs/week) and I don't have the motivation or energy to do much of anything after work or on the weekends. I'm starting to become disinterested in my work, or going to work at all for that matter. Although my hubby is SUPER supportive and very helpful, it just seems like I can't kick this cruddy feeling lately.

Is this common? If you've experienced this, or if you are currently experiencing this, please HELP!! I don't know how I'm going to handle four more months of this.

Thanks in advance.

Every pregnancy is different. Your hormones are all over the place, so its not so unusual to feel this way. Youre working a lot, take some me time. Find a sitter, have a long warm bubble bath, have your husband give you a back/neck/foot/everything massage, order in some take out, and just take it slow for a night. If that doesnt help, talk to your doctor. Your psychological wellbeing is important.
