At what point did you feel like you were slowing down in your pregnancy?

like you couldn't walk as fast as you used to or bend over and pick things up as easily or whatever, how far along were you? Did your husb/SO have to practically force you to take it easy?

  • I got like that around the beginning of my third trimester/end of my second I think. My DH never tried to get me to slow down or stop doing EVERYTHING around the house, even though I was on bed rest (well, supposed to be) because of high bp. Oh yeah, he was a BIG help. NOT! Take it easy while you can hun, trust me. My dd came early because I wouldn't slow down. (Not dangerously early, just a couple of weeks and she was perfectly healthy and my doctor wanted to induce that week, anyway, bc of my bp.)

  • Well, I'm 32 wks. and it comes and goes. I was feeling pretty tired around weeks 25-28 or so and would have some trouble sleeping. That's when I really started feeling pregnant. But right now I feel fine. My energy level is fine and I'm still exercising, walking, lifting light weights, etc.
