i hope you start feeling better soon...i am right there with ya though. just absolutely exhausted.

Chris

Ugh! If it's any consolation, you're not alone. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Ariel

Could be you are coming down with what the wee ones had?
I'm tired and I've only got one child :)

meagan

I don't do *half* as much as you do, and I'm totally exhausted. Didn't having triplets teach you to cut yourself some slack? ;)

I know, pot, kettle, all that. Take care of yourself! J will settle into school and you'll be done pumping really soon. The light is at the end of the tunnel!

My Reality

I am not the least bit surprised you are exhausted. I hope you can catch up on some rest soon.

tara

i can totally understand how you could be tired! glad that school went well!

It just could be that you simply have too much on the plate right now. Being the working mom of trips and another must be exhausting - I am exhausted with twins and the same recipe. So skip that 11 pumping, sleep a bit. Good mommy, not bad mommy.

Would it be possible for your husband to be the parent on duty while you take a break? Monday is Labor Day; you could leave Sunday afternoon and go to a hotel or the house of friends away for the weekend and have a relaxing afternoon and evening, do something restful but fun and have a nice supper, go to sleep early and sleep late into Monday, and enjoy a good brunch before heading home. If you are going to take care of others, you and your husband need to take care of you.

I don't know what to say about the tiredness, cuz similar to your other post re the triplet party, I think you're amazing and I don't know how you do it. BUT... I've got some tips on managing migraines if you get auras before they hit you. I used to get a LOT of migraines but they've been pretty manageable lately with some dirty tricks;-)

kitty

sometimes even supermoms (you) get rundown...not sure how you've managed to do it all and have always been impressed and humbled by your energy. I don't do 1/2 the stuff you do and am still tired all the time.

Carol

I'm going to go with option C: "just doing too much and not making up for it enough in the sleeping hours".

Also could be that you are fighting off whatever bug they've got.

try to get some rest!

Candace

Parenting is hard and tiring whether you have 10 kids or just one. I have one (toddler) and finishing up a degree in college right now and feel exhausted at 9pm everynight. Hope you feel better.

Tag, you're it!! (see my blog)

Sorry you're so tired!! (((hugs)))

Bea

Are you seriously telling me there is no reason for your tiredness? Especially after you just named several? I imagine they're probably all part of it, by the way.

After all those gallons of milk, I daresay a couple of evening sessions with the pump isn't going to upset much, and it sounds like you need the sleep more. If you're really worried, the blood tests for thyroid/also iron levels/no doubt others are a good idea, if only to rule things out so you know for sure there's no solution but more sleep. It had to catch you up sooner or later, surely? Any chance some hormones could be involved in there?
