Me too. 37+1, just started mat leave. List of things to do, still in bed. Luckily no other DC to look after!

Yes Im exactly the same. Zero energy, can't get anything done. Im 35 wks.
Tried to change the duvet the other day and felt soooo exhausted trying to push the quilt in ....I just lay on top of it trying to pull myself together..

Me too! I cleaned the bathroom yesterday - that was such an achievement for the day! Had to have a little lie down on the sofa after hmm

Mee too - I'm 36 weeks, and DH has no sympathy as once ob=ver the summer I found the energy to go out with a friend for a meal!

I'm only 27 weeks pregnant and already feel like this. One activity a day - a shopping trip, some housework, taking DS to the park etc - and I am shattered. I went shopping this morning for a couple of hours with 3 yr old DS in tow, came back to have lunch thinking I'd take DS swimming this afternoon, and now I am slumped in my armchair and feel like a long snooze!

God yes - think maybe it would be better if i didn't turn on the tele/log into MN as soon as I got up. I'm 39.2 pg and waiting for that last burst of energy - but I literally have to force myself out of my pj's by the time DP comes home at 6pm.

yes. i'm only 8 wks, so feeling awful, morning sickness, exhaustion, got 2 ds's ds1 2 years ds2 10 months. ds2 wakes twice minimum in the night. i am not even letting myself think about what it'll be like with 3 under 3!!!!

if any of your housework can wait then leave it. maybe set yourself a small job like dusting downstairs one day, upstairs the next, to be honest it doesn't matter if its not done.

your bain is nesting, getting ready for baby but your body hasn't got the energy.

Another one here! I keep looking around the house finding things to do "before the baby is here", but looking after DD1 is taking all my energy (and some). DH is really good at keeping things ticking over, but I'm worried that my standards are going to rise rapidly as my energy decreases to negative amounts. I can't see him being thrilled to come home from a busy day at work to have a pregnancy loony barking orders at him that the skirting needs to be washed. grin

sunflower78 Wed 27-Aug-08 17:53:14

Me too (39 wks today)! Every day I have a "plan" in my head - or rather, the same paln for days now, I should really clean the bathroom and the kitchen floor... Have 4yo too starting in 3 wks . but all I seem to be able to do is spending my time between chair and TV, or chair and laptop...
blush but maybe it's good that I leave those jobs for labor - at least it'll go quicker (had v.v.long one with DS1, so I'm planning to keep busy and mobile this time)
MTM - I do go on about skirting boards to poor DP....

oh, well, better go and get that washing, otherwise I'll shout at poor DP about how he should fold clothes...

37+5 here. I've slept nearly non-stop since last midnight, been up for under 2 hours.
Going to have more kip until MrNC gets home. I've been trying to restrict myself to physiclaly-undemanding stuff but even making a phone call is too demanding today.

I have no idea how people with small children manage to be pregnant - but getting a cleaner once or twice might be affordable?

you guys have made me feel so much better grin


JessJess3908 Thu 28-Aug-08 13:18:02

My skirting boards are filthy too, funny how i never noticed before i became too pg to do anything about it...
