I have been struggling in the last week or so to stay alive in the world and not just nap all day long. I feel like I hit a MAJOR wall about four days ago and can't seem to get up and stay up.
I'm sleeping OK during the nights minus a slight increase in potty breaks. But I wake up around 7:30.. I go and get some breakfast and fall asleep again at 9am. I sleep AGAIN until 11-12 and then get something to eat and try to go to my office to work. By 3:30 I feel like I'm about to pass out and usually nap for another hour.
This morning I felt like a train hit me when I woke up the first time. I went to the shower and was in there for a long time until I felt alive enough to even go downstairs and get breakfast.
I didn't think that I would be THIS zapped. And its not my iron levels because they were actually very VERY good. Between horrible groin pain and the feeling that my baby is falling out and ultra sleepiness.. I'm not getting any work done.
YES! I am barely functioning I feel like. I am so tired of I sit down in the afternoon I actually fall asleep sitting up and Ive got 2 kids at home my house is loud. I keep saying I was never this tired with my other two. I am not anemic, I have passed all my tests and labs with flying colors. I have been on the go for several days now, we have a lot going on with the kids activities as well as trying to get caught up around here but it takes me twice as long to get anything done. It is getting ridiculous!
I think it is normal for fatigue to return in the third trimester. If you are concerned I would check with your doctor at your next appointment. As long as there is no concern I would enjoy the extra sleep while you can!
OMG by 1pm everyday it feels like the day just drags on! I am so tired and cant wait for my fiance to get home so he can take over with the kids! Its normal in the 3rd trimester to be this exhausted. Gotta love the 1st and 3rd trimesters!!
With my first son I said I felt like I was hooked up to a Nyquil IV. It was terrible.. all I ever wanted to do was sleep if I was home. This time hasn't been as bad. There are definitely days I'd like to nap but if I do nap, I'm up all **** night unable to fall asleep.
