Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
Maybe if you sweet talk DH he will do a chore or two for you???
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
that made my dh's face get really pale and since then he's been better about helping me. he made a comment last night about not wanting to be a slave, but only a lunatic would have made me get out of bed at that point so he did what i asked him.
i have a 4.5 yo and can't keep the hosue clean, so you know what? so what? so my house is a mess. oh well. more important i get my rest.

As far as the 3 trimester exhaustion goes, I've been experiencing that too, but something that has really helped has been doing yoga in the morning. Now, don't get me wrong, I am ordinarily a couch potato with no inclination whatsoever toward physical exertion of any kind, but I suprised myself with how good I felt after doing yoga. Not only did it give me physical energy, but it made me feel content and more centered. An excellent antidote to the pregnancy scatterbrain. My local library had a video called "Postures for Pregnancy" and it features a super cute couple expecting a baby. Its very low key and not too strenuous.
