I posted this in breastfeeding, but I thought I'd post it here as well to see if any of you gals are experiencing this kind of thing...<br><br><br>
So since last week I've been feeling super nauseous on & off which I thought at first was yeast die off as my NP has me on Nystatin & a yeast free diet... But I haven't been taking it for over a week now & I was on the yeast free diet plus a cleanse before I got pg (I'm almost 3 months pp), & stayed on the diet for most of my pregnancy & I never felt this sick...<br><br><br><br>
So then I started to worry that I was already pg again... As I would be right around 5 weeks if I had gotten pg which is when ms has started w/ both of my ds's... But tests have all been neg (though it took 5 weeks to get a positive w/ ds 1, so I guess I can't completely write that off...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">)<br><br><br>
So I did some reading online & a few places said that you can feel sick if your iron is really low which it was when I was pregnant (I'm going to go back to get my levels rechecked this week (I've been taking Iron pills since 2 weeks pp) ) or if your not eating/drinking well & I do tend to forget to eat sometimes... The thing that is confusing me is that the day's that I feel the most sick are the days I eat really well & it can be triggered by eating the weirdest things (like carrots <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">) So I guess what I'm wondering is if anyone else gets sick pp/when breastfeeding aka is it normal or if I need to go get checked out...

I have felt sick during breastfeeding as well, and actually almost passed out a few times. I also posted under breastfeeding challenges.<br><br>
I think that it is because of low iron. I am now taking an iron supplement and making sure that I am drinking a lot of water. I have and intense and sometimes very painful letdown (usually spraying multiple streams of milk everywhere) and wonder how much of it has to do with this as well.<br><br>
Hope you are feeling better, and keep posting if you find out the solution.
