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

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.

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.
