We’re tired

I don’t know how women can work until they give birth. I am 35 weeks and I’m ready to stay home and sleep, I have no energy, no strength. Do all mothers get more fatigue in their third trimester? It’s becoming so hard for me to work.

I was falling asleep at work and I had no control over it! Thankfully nobody minded, also in the end my baby turned and rubbed my back so hard I couldn't walk so I had to take 8 weeks sickness :(

I worked until the day before i gave birth and trust when i say it was the struggle every single day to get up and go to work 😂 but I didn’t want to start my maternity leave early and just waste it.

Every pregnancy is difference and beautiful in its own way. I worked till day before getting induced. I wasn't tired but I was mean ass hell. Everyone stayed away from me🤣😂

I worked until 38 weeks and then took time off b/c it was February and I was uncomfortable driving to and from work in potential white out conditions... one day it took me an hour and a half to drive what normally takes 25 min

I think each pregnancy is different. My first one I worked up until the day before. I had too much energy. Second, I was taken out of work (high risk) but still felt like I could and my last pregnancy I was also high risk but was super exhausted all the time and sick. I gave up being a property manager and took a work from home job because of that. Made it a lot easier and I worked up until I went into labor. Had I stayed at my other job I wouldn't have made it. To sum it up, it's absolutely okay to just not be okay and be tired. You're doing something no man walking this Earth can or ever will do -- creating a life inside of you. Listen to your body and best of luck!
