Sooo tired

I seem to have reverted back to my 1st trimester energy level. By 3 I'm wiped. Anyone else? BTW I'm 26w 4d

Oh my gosh yes...awful. I can barely get through the grocery store without needing to sit. Are you working? I worked through my first pregnancy and I had such a hard time after lunch. I am 29 weeks with my 3rd...

I feel the exact same way at 4 pm.

Something to consider though, I'm pretty sure that extreme tiredness is a symptom of anemia...

yes, by three I am totally wiped out! The kids are grounded from t.v. and all other electronics for a week so I haven't been able to get my hour afternoon nap in

YES! I am 26wks and 6 days today.... I am moving out of my second trimester somewhat high energy level and moving into third trimester tired all the time stuff....and I'm not into it. I have been trying to have only one cup of coffee, but by the afternoon I want some tea or coffee... Is that bad or what??

Good thought!

I've really been needing afternoon naps!

Well at least I'm not the only one I do work full time, wengrin, although I do sit all day. I work for a company that makes flutes, and on Thursday I had them raise my bench up about 6". It's making a huge difference! I knew I was feeling a bit restricted, but now I know he was positively squished!

I think one reason why I have been more tired is that I have been getting to that point where it has been harder to breath. Baby is getting bigger but hasn't dropped yet....so my lungs have been restricted....
Thankfully at night I have found some peace. Last pg it was terrible breathing at night...between squished lungs and swollen nasal passages...it was sooooo difficult! This time I have found that if I sleep farther up on my pillow...where it is between my shoulder blades and have my head tilted slightly back to where gravity tends to help open my nasal passages that it does wonders! I also tend to sleep with my arms above my head...but not sure that helps....either way, I have been able to breath better at night now.
But for normal sitting, I have found that sitting in a reclined position helps more than straight up...but with standing, good posture is important.
I just hope I get a surge of energy before we move in the next month or less!

I am really hoping for that surge of energy also, I feel overwhelmed with what needs to get done before baby comes and my ridiculously low energy levels

I'm 28w3d and I'm exhausted. I work three days and at work I'm ready for a nap by 1:30, yesterday it was 10am. I need energy since we are planning a move and we are trying to get our house in tip top shape too. I'm functioning on little sleep, my back hurts too bad at night to sleep. I need to get to he chiropractor. I can't wait for birth. I'd rather birth any day than be pregnant.

Today, it really felt like third trimester. Walking to the subway and dealing with crowds was exhausting. By the time I reach the top of stairs, I have to catch my breath. New York City can be tough but I do appreciate it when people kindly give up their seat. I look forward to not commuting on a daily basis.

Deanna - I just saw a chiropractor for the first time, and I feel like a person again! I don't know that she helped worth my energy level, but I didn't even realize how hard moving had gotten to be, so I hope that'll help.

I slept past pick up time for my 1 & 2 graders today. Thankfully, my 17yo came straight home and saw me sleeping. He went right away and picked them up for me. I felt really badly but they weren't too scarred. He took them McD's for a sundae. Love him!
