Freezing Cold and Extremely Tired


I've been absolutely freezing cold for about the last three or four weeks now and nothing I do seems to warm me up.

I have to have jumpers on all the time and at night when I'm watching telly, although I have a spare duvet cover wrapped round me I'm still shivering!


I'm also dropping off at 8pm everynight without fail and won't wake up until my oh wakes me up as it's "bedtime". I cannot stay awake no matter how hard I try lol it's quite embarasing and my oh has started to call me lazy bum... (only winding me up, he knows I can't help it!!). It's soooo hard for me to get out of bed at the weekends too, all I wanna do is sleep!


Anyone else like this??

Aww honey. I am the same. Been to bed twice today and had naps. Went to bed at 8.30 last night and woke up at 7.30 still tired!!
(i mean, i do have to get up for the loo a few times a night...)

But ive been wearing coats when ppl around here are in shorts and teeshirts. and i had to put heating on this morning. So maybe it is a hormone thing.

Aww hun! I know exactly how you feel! Iv been practicly living in my huge thick dressing gown for the last few weeks! Constantly feeling cold all the time!Even now its been sunny(which makes a change in Devon lol)
And as for feeling tired?Iv slept more the last month than I have for the previous 5 lol! I feel tired all the time too even though im sleeping so much,Everything is exaughsting!Even taking the dog for a walk.
Im hoping within the next few weeks things will pick up for the both of us! Remember it will be worth it in the end!
Hope you feel better soon

thyroid


Don't want to worry anybody, but it's a bit unusual to be feeling cold when you are pregnant - mums to be usually feel hotter than normal. It might be worthwhile getting a blood test to check your thyroid function, because being cold and tired can be a symptom of low thyroid levels. When you're pregnant your thyroid needs to work overtime to give the baby what it needs. If your thyroid isn't quite doing its job, it's nothing to worry about - you can take thyroxine which is perfectly natural and safe for the baby. In some countries, your thyroid levels are checked automatically when you are pregnant.

I have been taking thyroxine for about 10 years and when I am pregnant I have to take a little bit more than usual.

Hope you are feeling warmer with lovely weather this weekend!

Bless you!

I feel exactly the same....I am sat in the house now on a glorious sunny day....with my fleece on!

I am nodding off around 8pm too every night without fail. I find myself apologising to my hubs all the time as I feel like I am really bad company!

Yesterday I went to town for a few hours and when I got back I was shattered. I fell asleep really early on the sofa and found it really hard to go upstairs to bed when hubs told me to go upstairs. It took alot of effort to clean my teeth and get my PJ's on!

I guess you have to look at it as a good thing though that your body is working hard to look after little one! Thats what I think and it makes me feel a whole lot less guilty!

Glad its not just me then! I am always freezing as well and totally exhausted all the time, which I know is normal. Just never remember being cold during my last 2 pregnancies!

I've been cold lately too, and for me that's odd. Never associated it to the pregnancy lol, but I guess it is if it's common.

When I saw my dr when I first got my bfp I mentioned the fact that I'm always cold now and also I was suffering really badly from constipation so she sent me for a blood test.. I've got to call them tomorrow to find out what the results are but she said I could have hypothyroidism or be anemic.. but she wasn't certain either way - guess I'll see in the next few days.

Anyone else reading this, she didn't say it's dangerous, it can just cause complications I think so she wanted to be certain as early as possible. If I don't have either, I don't know what the next step is!
