  • girl I know what you mean!! I am 22 weeks and it is all I can do sometimes just to shower!! I just went for a walk which produces more energy for me. I sleep alot, too, which I wonder if that does more harm sometimes but I just cannot help iT!!! I think the only thing that really helps is CHILDBIRTH :)

  • were riding horses while pregnant? isn't that advised against? obviously your kids have come out fine, but how did you know they would be? what did you do to prevent them from being injured in utero due to your riding?

  • It sound like you were much more active in your previous pregnancies. This could be the reason you're so tired now. Me, I'm tired the whole time lol straight from implantation to delivery.

  • I'm about where you are in pregnancy too and my 3rd trimester has hit me like a ton of bricks. I can't believe how tired I have been in just the last week. Like my 2nd trimester knew what day it was over and took my energy with it. Egh.
