I am always busy and always tired. Always. But lately it has multiplied. I find no time or energy for things I cared about before. I'm too busy trying to just get the minimum done so that I can sleep or rest. I feel like my body is on full speed ahead and I just can't keep up.

And baby is starting to let me know very clearly when enough is enough. Contractions come hard and fast when my body needs a break. And then, whether I have the time or not, I have to stop and lay down and drink and rest until it goes away. And it's happening more and more often lately. 3 more months of that. Ugh.

Pregnancy has never made me so tired. This time around has felt much harder on my body. Although I've also never had so much on my plate during a pregnancy before. All good things. But busy time consuming things. And even on vacation I feel like I am desperate for a break.

So now I'm off to stop complaining to cyber land and to go rest. Because even after the best possible night's sleep these days I still wake up exhausted.

Being tired might very well be one of the worst things a mom has to endure! Good luck McKenna! Glad to know you are still out there though ;)

You are older this time than with the other two. That makes a HUGE difference. Hang in there and rest when you need to whether you think have time or not. I too am glad to see you are still out there! :)

It's been hard for me too lately Mckenna. Luckily I haven't had any contractions yet, but I've had to let a lot more go lately. It KILLS me to go to bed with a messy house, but there are just some nights I have to close my eyes and get into bed without "noticing" just how much needs to be done.

One other thing that has helped is leaving a list of things to do for my husband. I tell him that it's not mandatory for him to do it, but if he ever has an extra minute or 2 it would be greatly appreciated! I put things on there like "load the dishwasher" "fold the laundry" "clean the bathroom" etc. I've noticed that my husband is very willing to help, but sometimes just doesn't know what needs to be done!

Get some rest! And don't feel too guilty about letting things go just a bit!
