Hi im 37+4 weeks and i feel absolutely shattered, not even done much, why am i feeling so tired and lost the will to do anything or go anywhere?? is this normal? i feel like im letting my family down cos i am restricted to doing alot... x
I think tiredness is normal in late pregnancy. It's your bodies way of telling you to slow down and rest in preperation for the forthcoming birth. Try and put your feet up as much as possible as you'll rarely have the time to again. And for what it's worth I suddenly got really tired at the same stage, kept falling asleep in the afternoon 9 very unusual for me) and baby arrived at 38wks exactly.
Can't remember if I was teary. Might have been but would have put it down to being tired from not sleeping well as could never get comfy with bump and always up for a wee in the night! Did feel like I did when was I was due on ie. period type pains, achey, very heavy down below as tho baby could just drop out. I did do a lot of walking in the last week - didn't want the bugger late but not sure if that made any difference and was well aware that a bit of nooky in the last couple of weeks could possibly set things off. Of course DP thought I was just horny for him! (Pounced on Dp in the morning, waters broke that evening and baby born the following morning!)
im 37+2, ive been feeling like this, had a sleep in the afternoon again, very tired, not interested in much outside of home and very tearful. stood in mothercare yesterday and welled up because nursing bras were just so ugly! This morning i had hindwater leak of waters so im sure its natures way of slowing me down. i actually walked through town centre yesterday as was getting all my last bits and literally was dragging my feet as no power to my legs.
