Anyone want to throw all their energy into a pot and share it with everyone? Cause mine has taken a dive even more than it did last week.

I swear I could sleep ALL day. You BTDT moms really were not kidding saying that the first and third trimester are very similar. Except now I can't eat as much as I am hungry. I DO feel miserable afterwards though. Whew. 7-10 weeks left! Can't believe it is coming up so quickly! And yet SO far away!

It feels like I've been living my life underwater for the last two or three weeks.

Yeah, I don't have any energy to spare to give to the pool. My worst week was a couple weeks ago. It was just bad. I still have no energy, but that week I was falling asleep on the couch by 7 pm!

I guess I'm not doing too bad in this department. I feel exhausted most of the time, but I do have enough energy to exercise at least 30minutes a day. Granted, if I don't exercise then restless leg syndrome keeps me up all night, which makes me more exhausted. I'm still ready for bed by 9 most nights.

Lol yeah idk how you do that! Although it makes sense that it helps with your leg pains. I might have to try that. I've been pretty good about taking our dog to the mailbox and back almost everyday but i think i could go for longer. I'm just afraid of the pain walking causes me in my belly.
This next appointment needs to hurry up so I can have my TSH levels checked. I think that might be a part of why i've been more tired than usual this past week.

And holy heartburn! Just laying down in bed on my phone writing this and BAM! I can feel the wrath of drinking water!

Oh wow that is way more energy than I can muster up. I got on the treadmill for the first time today in 2 weeks and I'm exhausted. It was taking all I had to make dinner. I'm sure my very bad night of sleep last night didnt help.

It's just a necessity for me. If I don't force myself, I don't get any sleep that night (not that I sleep great otherwise, but it's worse without exercise), and then I'm even more tired the next day. If I'm having a really hard time, I'll split my workouts into sessions, one of which is a 15 minute brisk walk during my lunch hour. Overall it really helps me, but yeah, those no energy days are very difficult.

I'm happy to report that my nesting energy drive from the past few weeks has waned significantly and I can now join you all in the "can't I just do it later?" gang.

Plus, I'm finding that when I overdo it...not only do I get exhausted, but my BH contractions the next day are just INTENSE. Anyone else have that problem?

I am in the SAME place. My husband has been so helpful though. He is doing dishes right now while my behind is glued to the same spot it's been since I got out of bed this morning.

I was talking to my mom and dad earlier and it hit me that right now being pregnant feels a lot like when I had mono. In fact, if I didn't already know i was pregnant I would think my mono was coming back. Never thought I'd say this but I am SO over being pregnant now! D:

Yes! I get them when I'm just walking up the stairs. But I've had a few that were questionable on the pain and feeling part. While I was out at a craft store with DH last week they were in my lower back almost like when I had the sciatica pain but it felt like a burning sensation and then my whole stomach would get hard and just ache. Not pleasant at all.
