My symptoms are stomach cramps and feeling absolutely cold all the time and so tired I literally pass out wherever I am in whatever position I am in. And I’m getting in trouble at work because of it . Is all of this normal? Expecially the one where I am freezing cold all the time like chills with no fever

Hello, my name is Dr Stan, I am US trained, Board Certified with 30 years of patient experience. Please allow me a moment to review your question.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. This sounds like over exertion. May I suggest you get off your feet and get some extra rest. The feeling of being "cold" may be related to your Thyroid and would not be too unusual with a pregnancy. Please contact your OB and request a blood test to evaluate your Thyroid gland. If your blood test, TSH is high, then placing you on medication will make you feel better.

Thank you so much. If I had a thyroid issue would that harm the baby in any way?

You are welcome.

If you do have Thyroid insufficiency and it is treated, your baby will not be harmed. You should discuss this with your OB and get the blood test. This is easily resolved.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?
