This is my second pregnancy.
Had some issues with large bleeds but not really anything since 17 weeks. I’m now 23+1. Baby looking good, placenta has moved up. But I keep coming over feeling absolutely horrendous.
It’s like I’m about to collapse, but not because I’m dizzy. I get hot and shakey and nauseous. I literally feel like my energy is falling through my feet and I can’t function. I end up sitting and staring.
My midwife has checked my iron and pulled forward my GTT test and both have come back normal. BP has always been on the lower end of normal, but that’s normal for me. Have been directed back to GP - but having spoke to GP last week, ‘it sounds like pregnancy’, so don’t hold much hope.
I know all pregnancies are different, so I can’t necessarily compare with my 1st, but I can’t function, can’t work and my gut is telling me something is wrong.
I'm afraid I don't know anything useful for this, but bumping for you in the hope someone more knowledgeable might come along soon.
I had this at around 21 weeks but it only lasted for a week so disappeared before I had chance to mention it to anyone. The only thing I attributed it to was being hot and dehydrated? (I live in a hot country and it mostly happened to me after I'd been outside or exercising)
I had this on and off throughout pregnancy. The same sort of sinking feeling of energy just draining away and feeling really low. I didn't have any obvious medical reason for it either. I just learned not to fight it and to lie down/nap when needed. It always seemed to go through phases and then I'd feel fine for a while again.
