    I’ve entered my second trimester of pregnancy, so when will the dang fatigue go away? I’m at 22 weeks, and I still feel like I’m dragging myself through each day. I can’t imagine how those of you with other littles handle parenting and being pregnant, lol! I’m also having increasing back pain and some major constipation. Are these symptoms just part of my life now or can I really expect to feel better soon? I’d like to have more energy to get the nursery all fixed up and maybe even make some freezer meals for when the baby finally arrives.

    Well, my baby is four now and I’m still tired. Does that answer your question? Sorry for the snark, but we had a rough night last night, and maybe I need to send the kiddo to the grandparents’ house for a bit. I did get that surge of energy towards the end of my second semester which let me get some stuff done, but it didn’t last long. I hope you get some good rest, mama!

    The second and third trimesters were the easiest for me! I still dealt with back issues until delivery though, and it took my body a long time to get back to normal. You will get through it; you just have to take it one day at a time, and go easy on yourself.

    Is it possible to take some time away from your job or other responsibilities and enjoy a relaxing weekend to recharge? I went away on a babymoon with my hubby during the second trimester and I feel like it really helped me build strength that I needed later on. Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t do everything that you normally can do. After all, you are growing a person!
