Popping in from June...
I've been like this my whole pregnancy. I think varying levels of fatigue are just one of those pregnancy things. For me, it's usually been a first trimester thing, but it just never went away this time.
I also find that, towards the end, any fatigue I'm experiencing is exacerbated by a tendency to be very reflective and inward focused. I don't feel up to interacting with anything outside, be that the children, care providers, housework, whatever. I just want to sit back and let the world float by. Combined with the fatigue, it makes me awfully unproductive...and grumpy.
