Hi girls I'm 10+3 weeks pregnant and just feel lowsy. I'm on anti sickness meds for hyperemesis but just generally feel awful. No energy, in jammies all the time and haven't cooked a meal in weeks. Eating better now but even dragging myself off the couch to go pee is an effort . Anyone else feel this rubbish?
I felt just like you and was diagnosed anaemic after blood tests at booking in so worth getting checked out if you've not had yours yet. The good news is that within 6 hours of taking my first iron supplement I felt completely human again and now, at 17+2, I have more energy that I had before I was pregnant! So even if it's not something that can be managed in the short term, it is something that should pass longer term
Thanks, ive just had my booking appt and all bloods taken so hopefully here soon. I do suffer from low iron levels anyway so that could be it. I'm also on anti sickness meds which are a type of anti histamine. I haven't taken any today and don't feel so bad, although still sick
