Is anyone else pooping out yet? I really over did it this weekend and I am still trying to recoperate! i just cant do what i would normally do anymore and my body is letting me know this quickly!
Right there with ya: I am requiring a daily nap these days!
Growing babies is hard work!
I definitely have a lack of energy right now. I am also having bad insomnia, which is not a good combo, lol.

I'm actually really surprised with my energy level lately, I have been doing quite a bit without tiring. I'm taking full advantage though because with third trimester right around the corner I know it won't be long.
And remember Erin, you have double the baby you are carrying around! After I read about your last appt I just can't imagine already feeling 34 weeks pregnant!

I have bursts. Some days it seems like nesting or something else just keeps me going when I need (or just feel the need) to get something done. Yesterday I was able to go to church, get both toddler rooms ready for Sunday school, paint dd's bedroom door, go shopping, make dinner and help dh hang the door. All of that with only 3 hours sleep b/c we had thunderstorms for several hours. Today I put a load of towels in the washer, cleaned out dd's room so the carpet can be cleaned and hand washed dishes (darn dishwasher is broken) and I feel pooped.
With twins you're probably gonna get tired out a bit faster, at least I would assume so! As for me, walking up the stairs tires me out, I'm way out of breath when I get up there. I know I'm plus sized but I had the same troubles when I was pregnant with Hailey, and after she was born, I was able to walk up the stairs without being out of breath, and even last June, my oldest lost his award he got from school and I was able to walk quite a ways in the bush, and down the road without being winded. It was nice! Just do little bits at a time... a bit of housework etc isn't gonna hurt anyone if it's not done .
