Did you notice how many of us have colds? Between the change of seasons and the end of pregnancy I have no defense against this crud. I remember this happening during my last pg too. I was worried about breathing during labor, but the cold cleared up on it's own before she was born.

Mama to 4 darlings. A ('03), O and K ('06), A ('09), and wife to M since 2002.

Being pregnant, we have slightly compromised immune systems anyway. I think the fatigue of the end really lets us get the bugs that are going around. I think we should all be taking vitamin c (as sodium ascorbate if you can find it.)

DH is having a hard time at his job right now (he's injured his wrist and they're three people down so he's almost single-handedly running the kitchen in the mornings) so he can't wait to take time off. He's trying power of suggestion, so every night he'll look at me and say very seriously, "Tomorrow, at ten o'clock in the morning, you are going to go into labour."

And then at around 11am he calls me and asks "how I'm doing".

Well, I've been having those period-like cramps for three days now and even though they are further apart, they are gaining in intensity. : What the heck? Oh well, I guess when the time comes, the time comes.

I have been soooooooo tired though. I'm sleeping really well, with exception to the occasional pee breaks. But I'm not having trouble going back to sleep over the last few days, yea! And then I just feel really drowsy throughout the day. I think its just my body telling me to get some rest now b/c in another few weeks, no more consistent sleep!

Would you mind envisioning this for me, too? I could use it after two very long labours! However, I'm happy to say that I do have perfect, beautiful babies as it is. I'm a tad biased, though

I'm so right there with you ladies, feeling tired and no motivation to do much of anything. I find myself on the couch most of the day while my 2 yr old dd plays or sits next to me watching tv. NOT a good mommy right now, but I just can't move. My house seems to be a disaster zone, I tend to make a larger mess / clutter of things as I try to clear out clutter from a room. It's just overwhelming I guess.

I'm so not prepared, I'm planning on a natural hospital birth like last time, and quick like last time, but that means I have yet to reread a hypnobirthing book. (I wish I got more into hypnobirth techniques this time around, but time is running out fast) I haven't excersised down there if you know what I mean. I should be able to read on the couch right??? HA! only if I was feeling motivated!!

almost 35 weeks ... I so need that last burst of energy these last few weeks!!!!

In love with Dh since 1998. We created Ds (7.1.03), Dd (10.16.06) and Dd (3.16.09).
