I have so much I want to do (and so much I have to do!) and all I want to do is sleep! I'm in the mood to nest and organize but after doing only a little I end up having to lie down again. The heat sure isn't helping either!

Anyone else dealing with an energy crisis?

Yes, I've been exhausted all week. I also think I have a sinus infection, so I think that's another reason why I'm so tired.

I'm still okay, though definitely exhausted. I felt really energetic last week (definitely not this week), so I got a ton done around the house. And then I even over-did it a bit last weekend. However, we're pretty much ready, so I'm probably taking it a little easier from here on out. I think if I was sleeping better, I might have more energy. I also get such bad BH contractions at night if I overdo it in this heat.

The heat saps my energy like mad. I have been getting up early so I can work in the yard while it is cool - I got up at 6 on Wednesday (6!? that's insane for me) and then I've have been taking a nap in the afternoon cuz it's too hot to do anything.

If these summers keep up this way I may have to convince my husband to move to Vancouver Island.

I have zero energy. It takes all I have just to get through the day.

I don't have much energy lately either, it comes in bursts so I have to take advantage of it when I can

At first I started doing less because I could feel the pull of gravity on my uterus and it made me nervous. But in the last few days I'm feeling more and more tired. I think I'm sleeping between 6-8 hours a night and then another 2-3 hours during the day. When I'm not sleeping I'm usually resting, so all in all I'm hardly doing anything anymore. Well besides growing babies.

I've been tired forvso long and therevwas so much to do that it overwhelmed me and made me more tired. DH stepped up and basically deep cleaned the entire house and has been great at helping me keep all the little every day chores done and get baby ready so my energy has kind of returned. I seem to have a good day followed by a not so good day. But it's working for me.

I'm absolutely exhausted. I get home from work, sit down, and that's it - I can't move from then and am usually asleep by 8pm weekdays. I'm having to sit down a lot at work too, otherwise I start feeling achey and light-headed (a bit like I have flu). I'm supposed to work until July 24th but am going to tell the MW about all this and see what she thinks I should do.
