All of a Sudden, Thirsty, Tired & Pins & Needles???
Hey ladies, I refuse to go to Dr Google with this lol, because ill probs find out im dying or got the Black Plague or something haha
Anyways, Tuesday just gone, i was Hit with Extreme Thirst!!! as soon as i drink water or juice im just instantly thirsty! also same day i noticed extreme Fatigue! i honestly felt like i was coming down with the flu! or something similar, i litterally slept all day and all night! luckily i havent been hit with Insomnia, so its not through lack of sleep...
Ive also noticed that im getting Pins and Needles in my Hands and Feet!!! Its not just when im getting up out of bed, but also during the day...
Its just sooo strange though as i didnt have any of this untill tuesday came and ive still got these symptoms today :/
Something to be concerned about or normal??? thanx
I think most cases of GD are after c28 weeks though no?
I have insane thirst and outrageously tired too. I have also been getting pins and needles but I have been putting that down to ligaments stretching (I know there is an effect on my bones and joints at the moment from hormones as my hips are hurting when I walk and therefore not a big jump to think that nerves may be getting pinched). I'm also 16 weeks, not at all over-weight etc so I'd be a bit more relaxed about it. I think it will be ok to wait until Monday if you're worried and this weekend watch your sugar intake and take a little exercise. I believe it's only an issue if undetected and untreated through your pregnancy but think that this is one case where Dr Google may help as a lot of reputable sources with info on it that may give more info and help calm your worries (try the NHS site).
I believe Gestational Diabetes can be anytime, especially when you have had it before....
I know my platelets were low when i just fell pregnant, but werent too low to be concerned.. I had my blood re-took at 9weeks and so when i see midwife on wednesday i shall get to know whats what on that side of things.
When i went to the clinic the other week my BP was on the high side... thankfully ive got no swelling, so hoping its not the on set of Pre Eclampsia.
Just concerned that come tuesday just gone i was HIT with like a brick wall of feeling extremely tired, extremely thirsty, pins and needles throughout the day and headaches with some blurred vision.
Im just hoping my iron is low im sure ill be fine x
