No Energy And Still Working

Sonrisa - February 15

I am 35 wks pregnant and have to work until week 38. I am so scared of going into labor before then. I have no energy at all. I am trying to figure out a way to be able to continue for 3 more weeks. Is anyone else in my boat? Everything that I do makes me out of breath. I just want to take a nap.

I worked up until my 38th week. I have an office job so it wasn't completely unbearable, but it was still hard on my back. Bananas are great for an energy boost. Make sure you're getting enough sleep at night...maybe try to go to bed earlier. Drink plenty of fluids. I am not sure exactly what you do but I found for myself - sitting down for the most part - that getting up and taking a 3min walk around the office every hour or so, or going out to the balcony for fresh air really helped. Good luck!

DDT...thanks...I teach. It is the standing while teaching that is not working for me. I am starting to sit more while I teach. I am just wiped. We also have to go down steps every time I use the ladies room and that is pretty much every hour now. Those steps are killing me. I do get to walk around.
