I have what may appear to be a fairly obvious question but I'm concerned. I am utterly and absolutely exhausted. I have a 16 year old and a 10 month old baby, baby is breastfed still quite a lot, and waking anywhere from 1 to 4 times a night but on average twice. When he is teething it can take him a while to settle at night and may not be asleep until 9pm. I have been to the doctors and had tests for iron, thyroid etc all came back fine. The thing is, normally I am a very energetic person I frequent the gym 4 times a week plus walking and working and normally I cannot tolerate sitting for long durations (lots of energy). But now I spend hours sitting and either watching TV or on the computer, my body is exhausted I get to gym but not as intensively and my standard uniform at home is tracksuit pants, I haven't even the energy to care about my appearance and my body and joints ache. I'm not depressed I'm just in a state of exhaustion that I have never experienced before and never had with my first baby. I know I am going through court issues, DV issues and financial issues plus going it alone with two children but surely to god it cannot cause this.
Is this normal? Can anyone recommend anything?
