At almost 24 weeks pregnant I seem to have lost all 'get up and go'! I am sleeping most afternoons for a good 3-4 hours and wake up with little enthusiasm to do anything other than 'relax' - this means sitting at the PC, lazing around etc.. I do have good days where i get an awful lot done but then others where i can barely be bothered...It is my first week staying at home as i've just finished work for what might be a long time. Should i see my GP or do you think it's normal to be well..disfunctional one minute and okay the next?
Sorry to go on...

i think it is perfectly normal, them hormones have a lot to answer for!

Hi Chacha,
recognise me from Due in Nov thread?
Well, I have the same problem, except an 11 month old. I am coming up to 27 weeks, and had hoped I'd feel a little more energetic and "blooming" at this stage!

I was tempted to go to the doctors, but I kept thinking-they will think I'm being melodramatic.
I still have this week and next week at work, and believe me I am counting the hours. I am praying that I will feel slightly better then.

I really don't know what we can do, except get early nights, eat properly, excercise(even if it means hoovering the stairs!) and getting a good few minutes a day to ourselves to read/pamper.

hmm - you've just summed up my life since i gave up work. I'm not worried by it any more, i'm just making the most of the fact that i can sleep for 3 hours in the afternoon, and that i don't have to do anything if i can't be bothered. In 3 months it will be a distant memory...

Nova - eeeeek! Sitting shock faced at the PC...It's true isn't it? A distant memory in 3 months time, yikes!!!

Hamster - I haven't seen you on the Nov thread for a long time. Only 2 weeks to go eh? Congratulations! It's hitting me hard today that I have NO work, I am dreading the day that DH comes home and says 'so, what have you been doing all day?'

I hope this will not worry you further - I started feeling knackered at 26 weeks - and I'm still the same at 35 weeks!! Found out I was anaemic and taking iron did make me better briefly - but I'm really slow and vague again!!!

cha cha exactly the same here..nearly 21weeks and energy levels feel like they are being sapped. I am jealous of your 3hr sleeps though as i have a 21mths old who has decided in the past week he no longer needs naps..enough to drive me to tears but then thank god for tv cos i can catch a sly 30min doze while the wiggles are
