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.

I am 36 weeks pregnant (first child), and I'm working and going to school. I am taking online classes, so during the day I lay around a lot. I was walking a lot in the beginning of my pregnancy, but lately not so much at all. It always seems like I'm tired all the time. Am I being totally lazy when I don't get up and walk, or is being this tired natural?

i would think its normal thats how i was in my first prenancy, its just that growing ababy is tiring for ur body specially at 36 wks. but walking helps alot at the time of the delivery its faster. just to be sure though i would ask ur ob.
I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow.  I stay at home with my 2 year old and I also take online classes.  I worked out really everyday hard up until two weeks ago.  I'm too exhausted to do anything, and I feel completely guilty about it since I'm usually really anal about getting the impossible done.  I'm having a great deal of difficulty trying to talk myself into thinking it's okay for me to not do anything, but I feel like I'm just wasting valuable time.  Last pregnancy, I worked up til delivery, so I didn't notice how tired I was.  Today, especially, I'm feeling incredibly miserbale and big, and haven't done much.  Honestly though, this is the worst part of pregnancy, because it feels like it's lasting a lifetime!!!
