Im 32 weeks and the tiredness is really hitting me. Im gladdened to see other people are feeling the same thing, because i dont remember feeling like this in previous pregnancies (i think ive just completely forgotten) Ive been in the habit of walking 3-4 miles at least 4 times a week, usually to take my kid to school. I just cant do that anymore, and take public transport when i can. I cant even do a walk around the block without having to have a few rests here and there. I just cant seem to get my body to pull me through it. My legs are definitely bigger and sort of chunk along. Im not getting any pain, but definitely get, what i think are braxton hicks (hardening of the uterus) when i pull my stroller up several flights of subway steps.
Today i planned a long walk, but all i wanted to do was go home and sleep.
Lately i havent been sleeping too well, (that U2 song ''ím wide awake! im wide awake, ....im not sleeping....'guitar solo...) just keeps going through my head i the middle of the night.
Last night however, i slept well. Still exhausted today though.
Is it the progesterone or something? Does it go up dramatically at this stage of pregnancy? Someone said their husband ate some of their placenta, and felt like he was drugged.
Anyway, i would like to keep the weight down, but...hey.
I will definitely try and keep up the walking, but why is it so hard??
Oh, and another thing, i will moving to an apartment with a 3 story walk up. The timing couldnt be better (scarcastic) in that i will be about 33/34 weeks then.
Im trying to look on the bright side, think of all the exercise ill be getting!!!! Ill probably have to take it reeaally slowly, and take about 20 mins to climb the stairs, taking a long rest between each flight. I hope this isnt actually dangerous.....
Does anyone know why its so hard to exercise at this stage of pregnancy?
