Lacking motivation

. . To do anything

Last week I seemed to have an energy burst and it was cleaning and sorting. This week I don't wanna get off the sofa let alone go to work or do anything, just feeling really 'meh' envy

25 weeks tomorrow, hoping it passes

Same here about lacking motivation and I am a week behind you. I just need my toddler to understand this!

I'm the same - almost 29 weeks and I haven't got anything sorted. We moved house at the beginning of June and that sapped all my energy. My mum is panicking as its likely I'll be taken into hospital at 37 weeks due to another transverse baby!

I have found the motivation to sit and watch episodes of Orange is the new black this afternoon . . That feels quite productive! grin

I'm glad it's not just me, I'm 27 weeks tomorrow and have been in work this morning, came home with good intentions to put washing on, clean bathroom, sort out spare room so we can measure it for nursery furniture...I've ate a bowl of pasta and got into bed instead 💤

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling tired and lethargic 2nd Tri. People at work don't seem to get why I'm still tired, even though they've all had kids. Everyone says 2nd Tri is supposed to be easier, but I've not found that. Perhaps because my 1st Tri was relatively easy as I had no sickness.

We've made sure we have got things sorted (travel system bought, nursery virtually complete), but I just move more slowly!

Really lacking motivation at work, I just can't concentrate or think at that level any more.

I find myself second guessing what I do, especially as work. I was known for being the memoriser - any details/numbers - you ask me - id know. Lately I just keep forgetting stuff and messing up! So frustrating

My manager said she could tell I wasn't focused during team meetings.

Crap. That was when I was doing my pelvic floor exercises.

I should maybe work on them, I think I'd feel productive with my day if I could stop myself pee'ing!! pregnancyissues!!

Glad I'm not the only one. I was wondering if maybe there was something wrong. I have all the right ideas in my head but it's the putting them into practice I struggle with. The only thing I seem to spend all my day doing is visiting the toilet for a pee.
