I'm 36.5 weeks pregnant and over the last couple of days I've suddenly become sooooooooo hungry and very tired. Just wondering if this could be my body's way of storing energy for baby's arrival? Anybody experienced this? I'm hoping to get this big spurge of energy that everybody talks about cos still got lots of nesting to do!
Now's about the time that the baby will lay down extra fat stores in preparation for birth and breastfeeding. The baby goes through quite a growth spurt at the end. This is tiring and yes you may feel more hungry- plus usual fatigue at massive changes that have already happened. The other possibility is that your iron levels may have dropped a bit. Are you feeling dizzy at all? Breathless? Pale inside of your eyes?
The only sure sign of the baby coming is, er, the baby coming!
