I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with baby number three, and maybe it's just me but it seems to be much harder on me than the previous two. I get tired much easier, back hurts more, etc. Has anyone what felt this way?

I do remember being alot more tired and run down with baby number three.  Also, looking at pictures, I showed ALOT earlier and got ALOT bigger overall (but he was a big baby at 9 1/5 lbs!).  Can you imagine how Mrs. Dugger feels at baby #18?  I think I would just lay in bed and sleep all day every day until I gave birth. :)

Absolutely. You have much more to do than you did with the last. Also, every pregnancy is different. :)
Hang in there!

Yes!  I think it's a hard thing to transition from one to two, then from two to three.  Usually when you'r pregnant the first time you can relax and rest and really pamper yourself.  Not so easy when you're pregnant the second time and pretty much impossible when you're pregnant with the third.

But try to relax as much as you can . . . give yourself a break when you can!

ha! yes, i just had our fourth and I kept saying, "I'm not as young as I used to be," and pregnancies are easy breasy for me, but I was definately slower and more tired with #4. I chaulked it up to age. I was 20 with my first and 27 with my fourth.

Every pregnancy is different-Im on my third as well, fifteen weeks today, and while I would say at the beginning I was really tired, now that Im thinking about it I dont know that it was more so than the first two. I know I dont have as much time to eat so Ive gained way less so far than with the first two and that drags at my energy and Ive been getting a LOT of headaches, which I didnt have so frequently before. Otherwise, I feel pretty well the same-pregnant and eager to finish so I can have my baby. :-) Good luck!

Normal.  You're body is older, and you have two other people to look after.
