Just curious...<br>
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? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>
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.<br><br>
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?<br><br>
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! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Give it up, girl, you ain't goin' before me!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><br><br>
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.
