Legs ... soooooo tired

My legs, they're tired all the time. Every time I walk, I feel like I've been walking in the sand for 12 hours straight. They're not sore or anything, just tired ... worn out. Not sure how they're gonna hold up for 3 more months.

That sucks! Have you been doing extra walking (or less walking) or any other change in your routine?

It comes and goes for me. I had therapy today and I had such a hard time. So tired today.

Definitely less walking. We normally walk twice at work, a shorter walk, then a long walk at lunch, but with the holidays, we hadn't walked much in the last month or so. I'm going to start back today though, hopefully I can power through the leg fatigue. I really think most of my problem is that I gained 10 lbs in 4 weeks and that was a lot of extra work for my legs.

I sort of have this! It's my butt though (like, the glute muscles) instead of my legs. I was just telling DH last night that I think it is purely from the strain of having to keep all of the weight in my big old front balanced, like my belly and boobs are dragging everything forward and down, and that makes my butt have to work harder to keep me upright. LOL Pregnancy is such a dignified time, isn't it?

I'm seriously glad I don't have this problem, it sounds like a pain in the @ss! HAHAAHAHAHA, I'm so funny.

Seriously though, hope you ladies don't get in too much more discomfort. I think I was spared a lot of the "growing pains" because I'm already heavy so my body has adjusted to the extra weight. Now, if I was actually gaining weight with this pregnancy, it might be different...
