  • very normal, just make sure that baby is moving regularly and you should be just fine. getting plenty of rest while you are pregnant is great! i am 39 weeks and i cant sleep for very long and i wish i could!

  • Feeling sleepy all the time is definitely normal toward the end of your pregnancy. Get in naps as often as you can, your body needs all the rest it can get before labor starts!

  • Yep, totally normal. Surprised you made it this far before feeling so tired! Most people, it happens somewhere in the third trimester. As for the eating, I know I had no appetite for the first 30 weeks, then a switch went off and I swear, I could've eaten all day long. Then I started breastfeeding, and I swear, it has gotten even WORSE!!! Consider yourself warned!! =)
