Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

extreme tiredness/fatigue during contractions?

1 answers
i'm 40 weeks and 3 days now, and i've noticed when i have contractions, i instantly become so tired that i can barely keep my eyes open, even if i was wide awake just minutes before. i've tried looking for forums on this subject and am not having much luck. has anyone else experienced or are currently experiencing this?

I'm not experiencing it but my doctors fear that for me. There's a possibility I have a certain neural disease that may cause me to need help to push because the contractions will take a lot out of me. I know you asked this weeks ago so I hope everything got better.
