Just curious...
Since yesterday afternoon I have been so tired--absolutely exhausted. I am sleepy great at night lately so I don't know why. I know some people get an energy boost before labor, just wondering if this too could be a sign that labor is near...or is it probably just more 3rd trimester fun?
fwiw, my contractions seem to be increasing some too, although they're not painful at all and i don't think they're regular either...haven't bothered timing them.

I had a burst of energy a week before birth, but for a few days leading up to the big day I was really tired and really did not want to be around people.

A week before my son's birth I was miserable. I just wanted to lie around. I would go for a walk to keep things moving, but I was just tired of being pregnant. I had reached my threshold.

Except for the m/s I really enjoyed my pregnancy. I was happy and healthy. Then, that last week came and I did a 180. It was as if I just quit. I wasn't even to my due date, but some emotional switch had been flipped. I was done! Is that what you're feeling?

I should also note that I had ctx for 2 weeks leading up to my son's birth. I was up for about 7 different nights with ctx 2-3 minutes apart for 6-8 hours. Then, the sun would come up and they would stop. I was exhausted. But it was sooooo well worth it!

Give it up, girl, you ain't goin' before me!!!

I've been really tired, but the past few days I've been kind of energetic. But if I relax at all, I fall asleep. Of course, at night I wake up and I'm not getting enough sleep, so that is why I think.

My sister said she was really tired the day or two before her dd's birth, but I've been mostly exhausted for over a week now, with brief bursts where I actually feel like doing something other than sleep or eat coming fewer and farther between with each passing day.
