Anybody else knackered!?

Plum is at her Grandparents tonight. This was arranged a week ago as we've got tickets to see Russell Brand in Sheffield but we are so utterly, utterly exhausted that we are staying home instead ;(

I was so looking forward to it but what with a constant round of colds, aches pains plus looking after the worlds most excited baby on top of working three days a week I am just fit to drop. Anybody else feeling the strain?

We are all indeed in the same boat! Today I was so tired I thought I was going to be sick. Just can't seem to top up my energy levels. The little tinker is making full use of me during her waking hours and is getting up every morning at 5:30 full of beans and raring to go. Plus on work days I have to leave the house no later than 6:30 to get a one and a half hour train to work.

I really really need to get a new job!

I've got us a cheaty dinner from supermarket and we are going to eat it under a blanket watching Cora Nora - I'm looking forward to that! Then I'm off to bed, I'm excited about that and for no other reason than an uninterupted nights sleep - how life changes :)

I'm really not surprised. After just one afternoon with Plum I was totally exhausted and I was only watching her across a table :rolleyes:

When I worked I changed my hours to start at 9.30 because if I get up early I feel sick with tiredness too. I simply don't know how you cope getting up at 5.30am ?( Won't Plum go back to sleep or amuse herself if you leave her with a few safe toys inside her cot?

I think that mine used to wake very early but I treated it the same as a 2-3am wake. Even now if DD2 starts shouting at 7.30 -8am at the weekend I go in and tell her that it's the middle of the night. :O :D

I remember, before I had children, someone saying "I just want to lie down in a dark room!" ...... I never really understood it until I'd had a child.

That's what I was going to say :) I gave up on sheets/blankets very quickly and went to sleeping bags (Asda's own). One less thing to worry about.

yes, I am dead on my feet sometimes. had a little barney with Dp not too long back over a sinkfull of pots (!) how silly, but his reaction was that I only work part time 8o part time yes, but I have Lolly from 7am until 5pm, then he comes home and I go to work. So at 5pm Lollys had her tea and all needs doing is a bath,bottle bed. Then he has her saturday and sunday as i work from 7am until 2ish then sometimes am out again from 4pm until 7pm due to staff shortages... grrr.. oops sorry to hijack rose!! :)

And when shoud I stop using the sleeping bags? currently have a 6-18months which is becoming too small, is it worth re-investing or should I try her with blankets now?

I too am constantly exhausted and Jake is almost 5. I work full time and relish every moment with him but it does leave me exhausted (he is like a Tazmanian Devil though!). The only resolve I have for this is that because he slept so badly when he was little DH and I take it in turns at the weekend to lie in, he has Saturday and I have Sunday and if Jake goes for a sleep over with the grandparents thats a bonus for one of us. x

Was just about to post a thread saying so very tired when spotted this. I have never been so tired in my life. Was actually worried that I was getting ill as I ache from head to toe and am dragging myself about at the mo - but think I've been working too many extra supply days... glad I'm not the only one wrecked - but wish I was too - if that makes sense lol Lesa xxx

:D Unfortunately not, forget about any fertility issues, that would be a miracle at the mo! Bed is for sleeping for the both of us I'm afraid.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Just feeling sorry for myself really, must stop being such a wuss x

Rivka, you are not a wuss, stop being so hard on yourself. You have a lovely baby who is a little bundle of energy and anyone would be knackered looking after her for even half a day let alone full time. Add to that the fact that you've been ill and its no wonder that you fell asleep at your desk. I think you said you are still BF also, that uses up lots of energy even if its just one or two feeds a day. You deserve a medal. My DH sometimes takes M out on a Saturday morning so I can have a lie in (except at the moment I'm being a wuss about letting her out of my sight, must stop it!), could you let J do that for you? Or ask your mum to have her for half a day extra so you can catch up?

J would and does do that a fair bit but I don't like to ask really beacuse he works such long hours and leaves the house at stupid o'clock. Might ask my sister.
