How tired are you? ? ? (kids mentioned)

Well, six years ago I was nursing my son - I had strep throat and was on my THIRD round of antibiotics for it - my 18 month had strep and the croup at the same time - he is autistic (we didn't know that at the time) and we wouldn't sleep - and to top it all off I was six weeks pregnant. That is how tired I am right now!

How about you guys! Anyone else just wanting to fall over?

I am napping like a princess every afternoon for 2 hours! And DH is getting a bit exasperated trying to keep the kids quiet. I am more tired than after I had both c-sections- and having babies that nurse every 1.5 hrs and never napped unless they were in my arms! This is a kind of exhaustion that is different from lack of sleep. Mind you, I wonder if I sleep more now since I can- my kids are 10 and 12.

I am very tired too. I can't nap cuz I am afraid then I won't sleep at night. Can't really get comfortable yet cuz I am over weight. I had no idea I was going to have to go through all this from the operation. I wish I could have read this site before the operation.

Put a pillow between your legs and sleep on your side that hurts the least. If someone can help, put a pillow on your lower back too. I am "fluffy" too, and that seems to help me. I too wish I had seen this site before, and have had some questioning moments. But you are only one week- I am 3 weeks- things will get better! Hang in there.

I am over a month out and I feel so tired and crappy all the time. Now that the time has changed, I feel like I could go to bed at 7pm. I am just wiped out (I had an LSH and started back to work a week and a half post op). I am not in any pain...just feel tired and crappy all the time.

UGHHHHHH I'm so tired too. Today is the first time I've taken a nap since I think week 2 and I'm at week 5 right now and the nap was only about 45 mins long. I haven't been walking due to my pain but I also haven't been sitting on the couch eating bon bons either. I've been doing the little household chores and taking care of my sick daughter who seems to always need something the second I sit down. My ears, nose and throat burn so much because I'm so tired I just feel like I could collapse plus my head has been killing me lately. Hopefully my daughter will go back to school tomorrow so I'll at least get a chance to lay back down after they both go back to school. Since dh has been down with his issues I haven't had much help and it's really taking it's toll on me.

While I'm not happy to see that others are also tired I'm relieved to see that it's not just me that is still having issues. I can't imagine working at this point. Doing these little things at home is bad enough.

Very tired! Any small task and I am exhausted. I am fearful about what our Thanksgiving is going to look like! I hear Popeye's is doing a Cajan turkey. LOL.

My dd is autistic. Best wishes.

Thank you so much for your suggestion of the pillow. I will try that. It is nice just to hear from someone. I spend most of my day trying to get comfortable & scared to death that something is going to go wrong. I have never felt so alone in my life. I was not prepared at all for this.
