Am I the only one? I sleep 10 hours at night and I cant stay awake during the day. I passed out when Aiden took a nap and stayed asleep for an hour or so after he woke up today.
I'm also losing a ton of weight. I eat ~2600 calories during the day and I'm losing at least a pound a week. I'm 126 at 5'9".

when i was breastfeeding i was always soooooo tired!! it takes a lot out of you, i usually drank about 5 Gatorades a day, that helped a little.

I am the same way..well I don't get much sleep but, I am always tired possibly b/c breastfeeding prodeced prolactin (sp) which has a calming effect on you
& I weigh less than I did b4 I got pregnant & eat more than my 200lb DH!
