3rd trimester fatigue.... :*(
Ug...this is a vent post more than anything. I need to get it all out there! Haha.
I'm 28 weeks pregnant now, and this whole weekend I have been EXHAUSTED. Not just "oh, I'm a bit sleepy" but down and out, on the couch, don't-touch-me tired. THE WHOLE WEEKEND. I don't know if this is just the 3rd trimester kicking in, maybe I have a little virus, or what, but I took today off of work because I felt so weak. (I'm a teacher, so if I skip a day I truly need to skip it. Making sub plans and missing is harder than just slogging through it most of the time, but now with a little one, I need to think about us not just me, so I decided to take care of my body.)
I experienced fatigue in my 1st trimester, but nothing like this. I went to the doctor today and had my iron + thyroid checked (and they also did my blood glucose screen), so maybe it's related to that, but sheesh.
Being pregnant is hard work. :P Vent over. I hope I feel better soon...any tips or things you did that helped if you are in the same boat as me? Praying this gets easier...
