I am so amazed right now. I just can't slow down. Even though I am not sleeping well I am waking up very early and going everywhere I can think of buying things or staying home cleaning with a toothbrush.<br><br>
I don't think I even had this much energy before I got pregnant.<br><br>
I have totally lost my appetite and I can't stop drinking water. Yesterday it was almost 5pm before I realized I hadn't eaten anything. I had to force a PB&J down.<br><br>
Is this normal towards the end of pregnancy?<br><br>
I have bi polar and this is really reminding me of a mania phase. Kind of worries me because of course I am not on the meds for it right now due to pregnancy but then I think I do remember something about a burst of energy in the last trimester.<br><br>
Well either way I will count my blessings because right now I am ready for this baby to the 5th power.

I would certainly be aware of the bi-polar and use the reminder to try and balance yourself out. A nesting urge/energy surge is normal but the shopping and not eating aspects worry me a little. Decreased appetite is normal, but not eating is not. Make sure you are paying close attention and feeding that little baby! I'm glad you are drinking a lot of water! I guess part of it could be pregnancy related but it sounds extreme so that may be attributable to the bi-polar. Just keep it in mind and try to take good care of yourself (food, drink, rest) in these last couple days or weeks.<br><br>
If you can, send a little of those energy vibes my way, okay?:yawning:

I felt that way 2 days before I went into labor with ds. I'm betting you'll go into labor soon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I was that way a day or two before ds was born. Exy got really angry with me for waking up in the middle of the night to clean, but our little apartment needed it.<br><br>
It's nature's way; go with it and don't worry but so much.<br><br>
I'm getting so excited for you! I never had a DDC before or even internet when I was pregnant with the big 'uns.
