15 wks still utterly exhausted and nauseus..anaemia?


did anyone else still feel sick and exhausted at this stage? did you feel like this all the way through? the exhaustion is so intense I feel like I can hardly move and sometimes when I walk my heart is hammering away so fast! I am only 15 weeks this cannot get worse!!! I have to wait a week for anaemia test but doc said it probably isnt this and it's just down to the pregnancy, but surely not? I have two other singleton children and I never felt anything close to this!

Firstly, you have my sympathy! I've been nothing but unwell so far with these babies, the only advice i can offer, and i know its not the greatest, is just rest and eat/drink when you can.
Luckily im starting to feel better so about 75% of the time i feel ok now!

Take care, i hope you feel better soon xxx

Did they run a general blood panel when they checked your iron levels or just that?

I felt the same exact way and found out my vitamin D levels were bottomed out. Not only will that make you feel awful but can effect bone development for your babies. Taking over the counter supplements won't do it if you're low, I had to take crazy high prescription doses over several months time to eventually work me up into the low end of normal range. I had hyperemesis throughout, but my body stopped hurting so much and my energy levels rebounded. Mid way through I felt better than I had in years!

Google it up, and if the symptoms match please make them check at least that and your B levels too!

I'm not going to lie. My twin pregnancy was exhausting compared to my singleton. But I did get prescribed iron tablets which helped with it a little bit x
