I have been tired throughout whole of pregnancy and not had good night sleep for the last 9 months. I never got my energy back in middle trimester as the books and everyone else say!!!!
I'm 38wks tomorrow and for the last 3 days wanted to do nothing but sleep and have slept like a baby through the night only getting up to pee once or twice instead of 6-7 times.
Not that i'm complaining about the sleep but i feel completely exhausted all the time even with all the sleep and been having headaches. Is this normal cos i was expecting to have a little more energy now especialy as not working and not doing anyting but relaxing!!!
Is it just my baby zapping all of my energy - baby still moves constantly and has not settled at all!!
Hi have you had your iron levels checked? I had the same in my last pregnancy and it turned out I was anaemic and was struggling when I did not have to! The doctor was going to give me iron tablets , but a friend had already suggested spatone which made a massive difference so I carried on with that! I am now 11 weeks with dc3 and have started taking it again! Hope you enjoy your last couple of weeks, and sleep as much as you can! X
thank you for that, i have not had iron levels checked so maybe thats what it is. i'm hoping to have a date for this week to have a section so shouldn't have to struggle too much longer. i will def get my mum/partner to get me some spatone (assuming its not a prob to take if the body doesn't need it), but that should help me get through the last few days/week!!!
thanks again with that and good luck with your pg. xx
