whats going on?

I have been on bedrest since 21 weeks for preterm labor. i am now 33 weeks (tomorrow) and I have been nesting like crazy the past week/week and a half ... CRAAAAAAZY.. (responsibly of course) full of energy.. i could clean and reclean and reclean that all day long and still have engery for more and WANT to do more... but the past few days.. i feel drained again.. no energy and as soon as i am awake i am ready to go back to sleep.. whats up with the energy swings??? i dont get it. my 1st pregnancy i wasnt really tired (like i have been this pregnancy) but the last week or so of pregnancy i was nesting like crazy and did up until the day i went into labor.. is it normal to have a swing back into no energy??

  • the baby is having a growth spurt so it is taking up more of your energy. that is normal.

  • I did with my son... I had energy swings like CRAZY! The dr said he was just growing again. :)

  • Wow....I guess everyone is different,. I had no" nesting" going on with my first and third and only a little bit with my second. If that is really what it was? I was too tired to want to "nest". And my stomach was so so stretched out I had trouble moving. I don't even know what the whole thing means. Is it REAL?

  • I agree with previous posters; growth spurt. =)
