Whats wrong with me? 9 months PP

I had a baby 9 months ago, suffered from PND for the first 4-5 months. Have been feeling better mentally for ages now but not physically.

Firstly, I'm honestly so tired all the time, I constantly need naps and fall asleep at 8.30-9pm regularly - now, we have a good sleeper that goes 6.30pm-7am most nights. I usually get at least 8 hours sleep a night so I can't understand why I'm so knackered all the time.

Before pregnancy I weighed 10.5 stone, whilst pregnant at the heaviest I was 12st, a week after I had my baby I was back to 10.5 stone again. Then went down to 10st a month PP. Now 9 months PP I'm suddenly up to almost 12stone even though I eat very healthily and I'm always on my feet rushing around.

My hair is still falling out like nobodies business. Luckily I have very thick hair but its beginning to worry me - its very dry as well.

I also now get very bad pain when ovulating, almost like a constant pressure that sometimes feels so bad I can't walk properly. It lasts 1-2 days every month.

I've got a GP appointment booked. But, any ideas?
