When I was pregnant, I would sleep way past noon. At least during the first three months. In fact, I would sleep all day and night, only getting up to go to the bathroom or eat some food. Then, it was back to bed for me. I barely remember the first three months of being pregnant, mainly because I slept them away. Every day it felt as if someone had slipped me a sleeping pill. I could barely keep my eyes open during TV programs or for conversations. I was lucky that I didn't have to drive anywhere at the time. If I'd had other children to take care of during that time, I'd been in a real pickle. Before I got pregnant, I read that some tiredness was normal during the first trimester. But, this was ridiculous! I slept all the time. I couldn't help it. Once the second trimester hit, I was full of energy, so I was able to better take care of myself. Did you sleep a lot when you were pregnant? Or, during your first trimester?
