Hi just wondering I'm 27 weeks now and have been so unbelievably exhausted for the last two weeks. Had high blood pressure & protein in my urine which has now come down & am very breathless & my white blood cell count is high. My doc can see no reason for this so sent me to the maternity unit yesterday & they were horrible & treated me like I was wasting their time even though my doc asked me to attend. Is this all normal? Is anyone else feeling this way?

They are abit mean treating you like that seen as your GP sent you, you are only following their advice.

May be it is the heat. I am 24 + 5 weeks and feel so tired in the mornings I feel like I am hungover, even though I am not. My body just feels drained on energy.

Maybe you have got low Iron or something and are anemic, did they take bloods off you?


I'm 27 weeks + had been feeling that way for about 4 weeks, so I asked my midwife to check my iron levels as fatigue and breathlessness can be a sign of low iron and I was right on the borderline of being low so I'm on iron tablets now and feeling much better, ask for your iron to be checked. Xx


Thanks ladies, have started taking iron tablets so just waiting to see if they help & have been taking it much easier. Fingers crossed I see an improvement cos the thought of the next 13 weeks of that I would cry
