I cannot keep up. My kitchen floor is disgusting and I can't seem to get anything done. My poor 6 year old. All I want to do is sleep. Anyone else feeling it?
Suddenly... so... tired
My sleep is rather broken up most nights; I usually wake up once at least. But, by mid-afternoon, I am totally tired. My older ones are great at playing in their room for that bit of time though or quietly looking at books in either their bed or mine. Today, they made little cozy cocoons on the floor on either side of my bed and snuggled down for some quiet time of their own. Soooo thankful that they are able to let me rest. I keep thanking them & telling them it's gonna be a couple more months of quiet times (with a newborn) and then by the end of Spring they'll get their mama back in full swing!
I was like this last week which was really difficult with my energetic 3 year old! But this week I am nesting like crazy and trying to get through my to do list so I've found I have some extra bursts of energy - I'm 38 1/2 weeks and so the things I want to get done are making it hard for me to settle down at night. I need to just focus on getting everything done or letting go of certain things in the next few days so I can get some good rest before labor starts.
I've been saying the same thing a few times a day here too! I think we have kids with the same spacing too-- my DD is 3/08. What a great age... so reasonable and kind!
I've been feeling the same way. Most nights I sleep really well from 10/10:30-2, then I wake up to pee, and my sleep is pretty crappy after that, probably wake up several times. These last couple days, I've been taking it easy, and when my partner gets home and asks what I've done, he's all oh must be nice to be able to relax all day. I wish I had energy, to do things, going into the store to grab a couple items feels exhausting.
we are planning a rockin' Spring and Summer! yes, my babe was born on feb. 23rd so our babes must be really close. i was actually very worried about how she would transition into sharing life with a little one. she's grown so much this past year though- i must have forgotten about how getting to 4 can be hard but once they are at 4 it turns AWESOME! it's great spacing for our family. we'll have to compare notes once our littlest ones become big bros/sisters!

i so hear ya! it's frustrating to not be able to do everything as easily as we once could. thank God it's temporary!
yes, so tired and just feeling....lazy, for lack of a better word. not much motivation or energy for cleaning, playing, organizing, cooking etc. I'm napping everyday and still could be asleep by 8 or 9. I know life with newborn is exhausting but I'm looking forward to having a bit more energy.
Tired here too, with bursts of energy realizing what still needs to be done. It is so hard to not be able to do what needs to be done though, like vaccuming, mopping, and errands because of the contractions. They get better when I rest. In general, I hate relying on others to do these things for me, and am looking forward to being more active in the next couple of months. Thank you, Gunter for reminding me that this is temporary!
I have been opposite lately. It is either I am obsessed with everything being ready and know this is REAL crunch time, or I really was suffering from my low iron weeks previous. This last week has been the first time i have really had a lot of energy. It's also helping to kill time during the 'waiting game'.
