A lot of you probably don't even recognize me bc I've such a lurker for the past 6 weeks. This is our 4th. Planned pregnancy and at first I was over the moon excited. Now I feel so bad bc I'm so lethargic not only about the pregnancy but also about my life. I homeschool 2 out of 3 of my kids (my youngest is only 2) and I have to force myself to do that. My house is a wreck bc all I want to do is sleep. I have Christmas gifts I need to make and I don't feel like doing that either. I don't feel like showering. I really don't like myself lately. I don't like how I'm not excited for something I should be and the only thing I can think is that I'm feeling overwhelmed and that I've been pg 3 times already and now I'm just really used to it. I keep thinking "you'll get excited once you feel movement or when you're showing more" but I'm just angry and tired. I used to want one more child after this one and now I don't. It's a terrible mind-trip I'm on, knowing I should be happier, knowing normally I would, but I feel so tired for what's to come. I know it doesn't help that I cut coffee completely (Can't stand the taste anymore) and most days I get zero caffeine. DH is going to get me some greentea in a few days and I hope that puts some energy into me.

I just needed to whine. Plus I'm mad that I haven't participated much in this DDC. That was really something I was looking forward to when we were TTC and now I'm even too lazy to post. That is so crazy to me..

Thanks for reading.

You are so very much not alone. My husband was a saint last week and used his time off from work to do a major overhaul on the house. I had gotten SO behind on cleaning. He did mumble something about when the nesting period was going to show up, though, lol

Glad to hear I'm not alone. Wish none of us were going through this though. How many kids do you have rcjh?

Hugs to you as well navywife, hopefully next trimester brings us some vigor. I need it so much.

Oh yea, that's rough. I have a 9 y/o girl, a 5 y/o boy, and a 2 y/o girl. The two youngest are always undoing everything I do and it's exhausting.

I only have one child..but I also have DH who can be messy and i have pets to take care of...dogs and kitties. And I have been so tired its my main symptom. I feel like all i wanna do is sleep. And Ive totally slacked on housework...i havent taken the dogs for any walks i just send em out to play in the backyard. And there have been days where if the cats werent pestering me id forget to fill their foodbowls. And i havent done much with DD. I feel so bad. I always wanted alot of kids but i think two may be enough.

MamaSkunk- Pets are a lot to deal with too. I couldn't handle more than one dog and she's pretty independent. Our 3 outdoor cats are thankfully independent too bc I really couldn't handle any pet-babies. Puppies are just like kids. Especially in the beginning and for the first yr you own them. The cats never let me get away with not feeding them, they will hang out on the porch crying and tripping me until I feed them. They get fed first in this household for that very reason. Sly-devils.

Mommyandwife- Your duedate was the same as mine before they changed it to one day sooner at my last u/s.

I am having a hard time too! DH wants one more after this, but I just don't think I can do it again. I am having such a harder time than I did with my first 2 pregnancies... I have been incredibly unmotivated and just exhausted. My poor kids have been bored out of their mind because they have been watching so many movies. I just can't get the energy to get down to the park. It is very sad. I am hoping I start feeling better soon--and I hope you do too!

Hugs... it is hard, and you sound so busy already, no wonder you are tired!
Hope you can get some deserved rest!
