Do mummies feel tired easily? After having children, I feel different. I always very tired, I no longer like to go out, I always lock myself at home on weekends, weekdays I'm working.
I seldom feel excited when friends ask me out, I always reject the outing. But my other mummies friends still very happening, like to go Sentosa/holidays etc. I even stop celebrating Xmas, birthday etc. Is this normal? I will reply that I can't be bothered.

Yes I've became more lethargic and weak after having my #2 as there's big and small to take care. However, I will still get my family (parents, hubby.. etc) involve in taking care of my sons so that I can relax and go out with friends or doing massage and facial. Try to relax yourself, if not you will become haggard woman! This is no good.

No matter how tired I'm, I will still go out on weekends, at least we can relax from our usual hectic schedules. Prob u may wan to consider drinking Some health tonic? Like dom or yomeishu which can prevent u from getting tired easily? My hb drank waist tonic and he told me after drinking that, he doesn't feel sleepy easily.

I used to be the same as you. After taking health tonic, I felt that I have more energy for my kids. And also seldom fall sick.

me too. last time i always need some time to fall asleep, now i fall asleep the moment i hit the pillow even before the my hubby! I think theres no right or wrong, so long as that's what your kids and hubby enjoy together with you. A family who spends time together stays together :)

For me it's more of a mental block. I still think I'm deprived of sleep, a side-effect from the first year when my son was born, although i do sleep a good 6 - 7 hours at least every night nowadays. Sometimes i even get to nap during weekends with my boy. Maybe it will help if you get others to help you take care of your children occasionally? Or think of what would motivate you to go out? For me it's a good blockbuster movie and a new restaurant.. :)

I think is because of hormone changed. I am also facing the same problem during my pregnancy, less talk, no active, sleepy, tired & listless all the times. Me & my husband is working in Singapore whereas our 1 year old princess is taking care by babysitter in Johor, Malaysia. We go back Johor every weekend & we never miss the chance to go back. Honestly speaking, we are really exhausted travelling between Singapore & Malaysia by public transport every week due to the situation of both custom. In addition, maybe due to environment changed or whatever reasons, my girl is still making noise & moving around while sleeping in sarung at night without open eyes. Typically, in such circumstance, we have to wake up several time a night. Because of deprived of sleep, me & husband cannot provide a very good care of our girl such as providing water from time to time. We have less family support in Malaysia & we are just renting a room in Singapore. Our dream is going to buy a house here after obtaining our citizenship here & three of us can be stay together forever. I had been seeing TCM for almost 2 years plus, even though I already used up all my 14 days sick leave due to tiredness but I believe without a healthier body, I cannot hold until today. Try to rest as much as possible & seek for assistance if needed.
