Customer Question
Hi, I am 35...

Hi, I am 35 years old and am pregnant with my 6th baby. I havr fot children already and had one NND. I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and am so exhausted I can barely get up all day and all night. This does not feel normal at all and I feel very very unwell. What can I do as here in england they dont do anything until you are 12 weeks pregnant. I dont think I can continue like this. Like I say this is not my first pregnancy and Im aware all pregnancies differ but this doesnt feel right.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

No

I can sleep all night- broken about 5-6 times and then wake up and be ready to sleep 1 hr later and will sleep on off for most of the day and then be ready for bed again at 8pm. Its just driving me crazy. Iv never experienced this before and like i say this is my 6th pregnancy
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

you should be checked for viral infections like mononucleosis viral infection which can cause severe fatigue

you should work on improving your diet and trying to eat healthier.

you should ask for blood test to check your thyroid levels and iron and ferritin levels

I will request them from a&e as cant take this any longer.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

yes, you can ask them to test for these issues

try to do some walking during the day if you can, this exercise could help you sleep better at night time.

work on eating more protein and cutting down a bit of carbohydrates and eating more fruits and vegetables.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
