5 weeks of travel = exhausted

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry I have been MIA for so long! I went on a 5 week trip to the US to help cure some of the boredom of the winter break. My son was off school and I was without a car (thanks to the car accident in June) so we went up to the US. I was without internet for most the trip so I didn't have a way to get on here and unfortunately this caused me to miss the bead exchange deadlines. SO SORRY LADIES!!! Anyway, I'm am home but very exhausted. Maybe it is was the travel or maybe just normal bionic fatigue of the 3rd trimester. I seriously can't even stay awake through a 30min sitcom! Anyone else experiencing this type of exhaustion?

I wanted to ask if anyone is doing primrose oil, either vaginally or orally. If so, what dosing are you using and when are you starting?

I'm happy to be back. Hope everyone is having a smooth 3rd trimester. (hugs)

You must be so glad to be home! I was just out of town for 2+ weeks and couldn't wait to get back to my own space! I was wiped out and found it much harder to travel with DD this time around. I think I may actually be a bit anemic due to the intensity of exhaustion I've been feeling. I have an appt this week and will check it out but started to take some extra iron and am feeling a bit better.

I'm suspecting anemia too. I have an appointment on Friday, perhaps I'll do the same and start taking iron.

Welcome back! I'm sorry you're dealing with major exhaustion...I was feeling that way a week or two ago and thought it might be anemia as well, but it happened to coincide with a jump in my fundal measurement so I think it may have just been that baby was having a major growth spurt (I also got my iron checked and it was fine, so it couldn't have been that).

 

Definitely a good idea to get your iron checked, but I think travelling for five weeks with a 3 1/2 year old would be totally exhausting even if you weren't pregnant...you are a far braver woman than I!
