Unhappy Feeling Totally Overwhelmed by this (Is this normal???)

Hi Everyone

I wanted to write and see if any of you can advise

me if what I am going through is normal, because

it's really starting to get me down.

No matter how much

sleep I get, I am feeling unbelievably fatigued.

Can't even keep up with normal household chores.k

I constantly feel wiped out.

My iron is on the low side, but its always been, and it's just like
the last 2 weeks, I feel totally shattered from the fatigue.

It almost feels like my muscles are weary and feel weak.

Is this normal at this stage of the pregnancy? I never felt this fatigue at all.

I am also wondering if I am this fatigued right now, how am I going to have the energy for labour?????

Please give me some advice. Thanks very much.

Yes Its normal I feel the exact same way. I never feel rested andI dont work away from home and havent in a while. I take a nap most every day and I still dont feel like doing anything that requires me to get off the My docs say its normal. I do feel fatuged as well when Im up moving around. If I go to the grocery store I get to feeling weak even. Yes trust me during labor you will feel totally different and want to get that baby out to see.

Hi Honeychild,

I had some pretty bad fatigue and it was becoming problem. It was an iron deficiency for me. I added an iron supplement to my pre-natal vitamins and it really helped. You may just be tired but it would be worth having your blood checked as if it is the iron, it is a pretty easy problem to fix.

How far along are you? I'm 33 weeks, and totally exhausted. Every muscle in my body aches, and I am having trouble making it to work every day. I'm not able to take a nap b/c I have a toddler at home @ DH works second shift. It sucks. I keep thinking I'll get more rest when the baby comes (ha ha).
