  • Oh yeah! I dont sleep. I am a little over 36 weeks and all I do at night is think about the baby and the things we still need to do for her arrival. And they are stupid things buy a new trashcan! I am so nesting! lol

    The baby is growing like crazy during the third trimester. Your first and third are the most tiring. Take it easy now and try to save what ever energy you have for when baby is here.

  • it is,but if you feel like you really have to push yourself to walk to the bathroom or do anything--have your doctor check your iron. it could be low. my last 2 pregnancies i became anemic towards the end.

  • It's very normal! Your body has quite a load it's carrying around, and it needs its rest! I got the best sleep of my life during my third trimester (once I could get "comfortable"). I've never slept harder.
