Oi, when in your pregnancy did you start to move slower?

I'm working on 30 weeks and am just drained... Today especially. Can't seem to find any energy. Drank lots of water- eating good stuff. Still want to nap... Have to keep up with a 3 year old though.

  • probably about the 7th month..i worked fulltime in the salon 8-10hrs/day, 5day/wk up to my 38th week...swollen feet/hands, slowmoving..could hardly reach across the backbar sink to shampoo a client. lol. it was funny, i guess, to watch..but i got lots of sympathy, free lunches/dinners, everyone swept their own
    i'd come home and if dh was in town, he'd run a bath for me, then rub my feet, wait on me. it was great. he wouldn't even let me drive the car, if he was in town, except to go to work.
    it all stopped the minute i popped that kid!

  • I asked for a foot rub last night and he just watched a show about gold panning and ate jelly beans :( lol, he owes me one today.

    Sounds like dull should get pregnant again!

  • With my first around 35-36 weeks. With my second it was probably around 29-30 weeks, it is more exhausting when trying to keep up with a toddler.

  • The day I was late for my period...seriously. Tired, sick, etc., will make a person not want to move too quickly.

  • Around 7 months . When the baby got biger and was harder to move around. Being pregnant just drains you.

  • With my first one around 8th month. With my secodn one I was out on bedrest at 6 month so I didn't notice.
    With my last pregnancy, I walked to take my middle son to the sitter and then go to work. I notice quite early, around 30 weeks that I was walking slower and slower. lol I also had less energy once at work or at home. It' came back some weeks later though.
