I am exhausted. All the time. Last night I went to bed at 9:00, was up every 2 hours or less to pee, woke up at 4:15 and was WIDE awake. Went back to sleep at 7:00 - 8:00 and I am up now, if you want to call it that.

I swear, I could sleep 12 hours - easily. My "normal" sleep (third trimester) has been 9 - 6 and it really seems like I need 9 or 10 hours of sleep, when before I only needed 6 or 7.: it's making me grouchy.

How tired are you???

Very! I went to bed at 10:00 last night and got up at 9:00 this morning. The kids slept in too or else that wouldn't have happened!

and :... that's me.

I am very tired! Today is the last homeschool meeting I am going to for a while-I am also considering no more housework

I just want to sleep and occasionally go outside to lay in the warm sun and feed my goldfish-and sometimes I feed the kids too (just joking)

I feel like my lazy cats-all they do is sleep eat and get fat.

I'm exhausted then I'm not. I sleep then I don't. These crazy dreams aren't helping. Not as tired today as yesterday yet but I feel like I'm getting there. I just wanted to lay down and not do 1 thing.

I HATE having to wake up to pee every few hours. But, I think it's even worse that I have to wake up to just roll over.

Of course, DH can sleep through it all...

I too am so tired just can't find enough energy for the day. Waking up to turn and pains at night that wake me up, I don't usually have to pee during the night. Well I take that back I do need to but I can't seem to force myself to wake up and get out of bed I would probally sleep better if I could get up. I am up at 7:30 to watch my mom's 7 month old baby while she works for 6 hours a day and my 3 year old. Everybody keeps telling me oh you must not be close yet, or you would be cleaning like crazy. Ugh whatever I do what I have to do. I don't ever remember getting that burst of energy with my first but I was also induced at 38 or 39 weeks so maybee I never had a chance. I have started forcing myself to pack for the hospital and an overnight bag for my son. I feel like I will never get enough energy to get it all done.

I'm absolutely exhausted. My MW basically told me I look like I'm wrecked. I go to sleep at 10/11 read for an hour, then begin the nightly ritual of trying to sleep. I get up every 30-45 minutes. Usually I have to switch sides b/c my hip pain is so bad. That involves moving pillows, bracing myself for hip & round ligament pain, turning onto back, bracing again, turning onto side, & breathing through said pain. About once an hour I also have to pee. So, I try to get up without pulling the ligaments again. Then I have to stand for a few second to get my hips in place (that's what it feels like). Then I sort of waddle to the bathroom. Pathetic, huh?

It's sad. All I wnt to do is sleep, but being in bed is awful!

This sounds like me! I feel like an old, old cadillac trying to do a 7 point turn on a very narrow street with all the steps it takes me just to turn over in bed!

This morning I woke up thinking how much I should be doing and how little I want to do. We just got back from a vaction and I still have not unpacked. Then there is all the Easter decorations that need to be put away. Then and most important, I need to prepare for this little person, whom is coming very soon! I want so much to get it all done, but where to begin and where to get the energy? Then and many of you are going to just shake your head in disbelief, but I am not only the mom of 4, but I also care for 4 kids, 5 days a week, and so I need to entertain them as well. I am 36 weeks on Sat. I just don't want to think of all the weeks ahead. By the way, the person who was talking about all their pains in bed...That is totally ME. I hate not being able to do simple things, like roll over in bed, without puffing and bracing myself. I have gotten so lazy, that I just don't go pee at night. Seriously, I have to go, but I hold it. I don't think that is healthy, but I am too tired to get up. I just lay there and hope i can last till 6AM when i have to get up.

Thanks for letting be vent!

OMG.. yes. Drives me bonkers!! And I haven't slept well because it's looking like we're going to have to have MAJOR sewer work done and if it happens to be in our part of the line and not the City's (I'm : it's the City's line) it's probably going to cost a couple grand that we do not have! The stress is really affecting my sleep.

I am not so much physically tired, as I am tired of everything....like tired of work, tired of people asking when I'm due, tired of people asking how I feel, tired of picking up the house, tired of wondering *when* labor will happen.

It's so aggravating! My kids are both sleeping great finally, and I toss and turn and end up sleeping on the sofa by the morning. Even that's not so comfy anymore.

today is my most tired day yet-I woke up several times last night-I alternate between dying of thirst and getting up to get a drink to then having to pee 30 minutes later. I drug myself out of bed at almost 10 becasue I knew my MW would be here at 10. Now with the kids having been fed lunch-it is now 12:40 I want to go back to bed. Of course the kids arne't tired because I let them sleep in this morning-I rented them a video and a video game so maybe they will stay occupied without aruging long enough for me to get a nap.
