I’m the exact same. 36 weeks today and seem to go from bed to the couch back to bed again. It’s awful. I’m on triple iron therapy doesn’t seem to have made much difference. Are we not supposed to get some sort of burst of energy at the end for nesting???

I’d say pretty normal, I’m 37 weeks and exactly the same. Everything is soooooo hard!

I'm 36+4 and a great human, including walking the dog 4 miles, until about 3pm where I hit a wall and have a nap. Oops. Best not get used to it.

If your thirsty all the time it might be worth getting your blood sugar checked at your GP or with your MW.

Probably nothing but thirst is a sign of diabetes which women can develop whilst pregnant

I feel like this and I'm only 11 weeks!

I was like this 3 weeks ago. I delivered a fortnight ago at 38 weeks!

I'm 36 weeks tomorrow and absolutely permanently exhausted!
I'm also constantly thirsty and have been trying to motivate myself to walk 5 mins to the shop to buy more juice for the last 2 hours!

Definitely get checked it could be late onset gestational diabetes as a pp said. At this late stage they'd probably manage you with diet, but they need to know as baby's blood sugars can plummet after delivery which can be dangerous. Also worth expressing colostrum if you have got diabetes to top up baby blood sugar in first couple of days. It is easy to do once you get the hang of it

Ring your midwife for advice.
