    I am 42 years old and 27 weeks pregnant with my third. I have an almost 7 and 9 year old and work full time outside of the home. Alot of days I am wiped out. All of my blood work is normal. I just wasn't this tired with my other two ‍♀️

    I was exactly the same on my 3rd baby! From second trimester, I even had to cut my hours down in work to just part time and the struggle didnt get any easier, just harder! I was so glad when he was born, I had much more energy with that extra child than I did pregnant and only looking after the two! I did suffer with anaemia though but honestly I struggled anyway, I was huge and uncomfortable and I work in retail meaning many hours on my feet and swollen ankles at the end of it. It does get easier, but I might be when the baby is already born that's all :haha:

    Hi hon. My baby is 15 weeks old now and ive just turned 40.
    I noticed being 39 and pregnant I was alot more tired then I was with my last pregnancy at 32 so I think age does come into a bit on the tiredness front.
    I was severely anemic tho so that didnt help matters.
    We will be ttc again next year when I'm 41 so if we are blessed again I know I will prob feel the tiredness again.
    Congratulations on ure pregnancy.
