Alright so my babygirl is almost 6 weeks old now. And I've had terrible migraines/headaches ever since I had her. Just about every single day. I'm going to talk to my dr. about it at my appointment next week. But has anyone else had this problem? I am also SUPER tired everyday as well even though Aubrey sleeps very well at night. A lot of times she doesn't wake up at all but at the most once a night for a feeding and change. I'm blessed that she sleeps good now but I mean I just don't know why I'm getting such terrible headaches and fatigue from. All I feel like doing is lying around the house all day everyday and that's not good. I've even considered taking supplements energy boosters. Haven't yet though, waiting to talk to my dr. Any advice or suggestions? Or am I not the only one?
I don't know about the headaches, could have something to do with hormones maybe? but I feel so tired too!!! and ayvah is also a very good sleeper. I don't know why either.. I live on coffee even though it doesn't really help. some days I sleep whenever she goes down for a nap.. and then she sleeps all night and so do I and yet I'm still so tired. idk.. but ur not alone!! maybe our bodies are just still recovering
Im beyond exhausted all the time too! some nights i feel so sick by the time i crawl in bed its crazy! i need my caffiene or i get headaches, but i know thats not the same thing... with my first pregnancy i had bad headaches after and im sure it had something to do with my BP which had went higher after i had my daughter... so its always a good thing to get checked out for sure!
Yea I have a history of terrible migraines as well I actually used to see a neurologist for it but he could never figure it out and put me on like 10 different pills to take multiple times a day even tho he didn't know where they were coming from. I just got fed up with all the tests they ran all the time and the time consumption of it and nothing was helping so I stopped altogether. I was living off of exedrines until I found out I was preg. It seems like the migraines got better while I was pregnant but sometimes I would get a bad one. But now since I had her its almost constant and almost everyday. I just don't know what's wrong with me. And the dr.'s around where I live either think I'm lying to try to get pain meds (a lot of pill-heads around here obviously), or they put me on a ton of meds that don't work. Its very frustrating.
