    Default Should I be feeling like this

    In my second trimester I was full of energy and couldn't stop. Now I'm in third trimester I'm beginning to feel not so good! I can't sleep at night, I'm overheating during the day. Reflux and heartburn getting worse. I'm too tired to do any jobs but I can't seem to nap like I used to 😞

    I hate to say it but sounds very normal to me! The second trimester is great and then you go back to struggle town :-( take it easy and rest as much as you can. I had all of what you described when I was pg with DD and now that I'm 24 weeks with DD2 reflux is back, insomnia is back, tiredness is back....

    YES! The hormones creep up again in third trimester, not to mention you are carrying around extra weight & your organs are getting squished! The over heating thingies normal too, your blood levels peak at 32 weeks, plus summer in Australia is not comfortable!

    Unfortunately, this is all normal! I've been pregnant twice, and the 3rd trimester was the most uncomfortable by far. At least you're in the home stretch now

    I exhausted myself just mopping my floor this morning :-( it is HOT in the top end of Australia - and the humidity is killing me!

    36w and can't wait to have my body back to myself! Same niggles as you OP - and the not being able to nap thing is just irritating, especially when you don't sleep at night - soooo tired!

    It's so annoying. I have do many jobs to do. Luckily I'm on leave already and ten weeks before I'm due. Going to work would be killing me right now!
