I have been feeling awful, and I'd like to know if I'm not alone. My 1st trimester was as expected - tired, queasy, etc. Then around week 13, I felt really good! Around week 14-15, I started having "zombie days," where I just was too tired to function.
I'm at week 19 now. I often feel "fainty," and am physically tired all the time (but not needing to nap.) I don't even accomplish one chore per day. Just the other day, DH made a huge pot of soup. I went upstairs to spice it to perfection, and when it was done, I was totally beat!
One doctor says it's my thyroid, and I've been taking thyroid for about 2 weeks now. Another doc says my body is working too hard to make red blood cells, though my bloodwork doesn't show anemia.
My homeopath is working at it from her end with my constitutionals.
DH has been a dream. He's taken care of all the kitchen chores (but I still do laundry). He takes over with DD every day when he comes home and allows me to totally rest. We recently hired a housekeeper because this doesn't seem to be getting any better.
So, what I'd like to know - Is perhaps all of this is just normal for pregnancy for some women? Is anyone else having trouble?
