With DC1, never! With DC2, it hit me at 39wks. Whizzed through the whole place in about 2-3 days, doing DIY and all sorts, as well as organising, decluttering and cleaning. I was quite pleased about that was promptly replaced by constant tiredness again
Also 37+2 and just want to sleep all the time. Actually hoping to go to labour early, as I am fed up. I can't even get out of bed without old person's moan. I do hope that I will get my energy burst just before Christmas, so I could cook without stopping. With my first I got it at 39 weeks, if I remember correctly. And I had him at 39+3. So 3 days before birth.
Oh no. I wanted loads of positive stories! My mum said she was this tired the week running up to having her babies. I hope I'm the same!
Estrusmum I feel the exact same. I'm considering taking some castor oil at 38 weeks if baby hasn't arrived by then. I've enjoyed this pregnancy but I'm just fed up now. I can't be doing with being this tired.
Doesn't help matters that I've been waking up every two hours! Not always because I need a wee either! Maybe its my body preparing me for the baby.
Yeah I read that it would be the effect lol. But apparently after that, its meant to kick start labour. I'm only considering it because I'm so fed up. But Friday is 4 days away, I could potentially get my eneglrgy burst then. Fingers crossed
I only ever got the nesting instinct in my 1st pregnancy, as that was an easy pregnancy, my other 3 pregnancies I was in too much pain with SPD, even though I really wanted to get stuck in I just couldn't, same with my pregnancy now really so much to do but no energy n too much pain.
