3rd pregnancy and feeling lazy

I am pregnant with my third pregnancy and I am just feeling like I have no energy. I am 19 weeks. I feel like I don't even have the energy to clean, do laundry or even get up. I am starting to feel guilty, my three year old is home with me and I dont even have the energy to play with her (very sad I know) I also feel guilty, because of my husband works so hard and I dont even want to clean. I felt this way in my last pregnancy as well, but my sickness was throughout my pregnancy so I didnt have much food in my system, but this time I am not as sick. Has anyone ever felt like I do or have any advice. Thanks, Crystal

That's how I was with my third. She's 8 months old and now that I'm into a routine, it's ok. The beginning was difficult after she was born, luckily my hubby understood.

This is how my days are. I have not done anything as well. I am just so exhausted, my body just feels tired. I know it wont last forever, but I just feel so bad.

Have you had your iron levels checked? You might be low. That causes a lack of energy.

A different vitamin might also help...vitamin B helps increase your energy, so an increase there might be helpful. Additionally, you should be active, even if it's only briskly doing housework. Low energy and lack of activity are one big vicious cycle, pregnant or not.

I feel the same way! I'm only 9 weeks in my 3rd pregnancy, but have no energy! I don't want to clean or cook or even get myself ready.

 Yes I feel that way with this one but thankfully my two kids are in school during the day; I do a little here and there but I don't push myself.

That is how I was with my third pregnancy but I had a 2 and 4 year old and worked full time.

Completely normal. I was the same way a few weeks ago. My cleaning took a back seat and I'm trying to play catch up. With my third pregnancy, I had to be on the ball with things- I had a 3 year old and a 10 month then. I'm pregnant with my fourth at 12 weeks and my energy is slowly coming back.

I am now 21 weeks pregnant and still no change, I feel like I drag through the day. I don't even get myself ready (I know really sad) I have a 7 year old in school and my 3 year old is home with me. I go to the DR. on Thursday so I am going to have her check my iron levels I am starting to think it could be that. Thank you to everyone.
