I am 18 weeks pregnant and this is my second child. So far it is been a nightmare... I am experiencing extreme fatigue, my heart pounding very fast!!!, shortness of breath, dizzyness, depressed feeling, basically bed-ridden. I don't work. so whenever I feel I have little energy left in my body, I just cook, clean and take care of my 6 year old daughter.. I can't go out at all... I just lay on the couch and only get up when I need something..
I am feeling very miserable. Last week I thought I can't even make it to my OB appnt. I thought I was going to collapse right there..
Is anyone else experiencing something like this? I have been taking all my supplements and iron too since the beginning of my pregnancy.. but nothing seem to work... My first pregnancy was a breeze....and this is a nightmare..
id recommend you speak to your midwife asap. i had this but only for an hour or 2 in the morning and when i told the midwife, if it persisted after a week i had to see the doctor, i didnt need the doc in the end but it sounds pretty bad!
thank you all for your suggestions.. this was my first post.. I accidentally had wrong tags to my post!!!!!! I am not bleeding... rest of the symptoms yes.. I had my blood work done and found out I was anemic and have been taking Iron regularly... I am a vegetarian.. but I am eating regularly and drinking plenty of fluids.. I have my OB appntment on Wednesday. I am crossing my finger that I feel little energetic on that day....
