Hi, I've had a miserable pregnancy this time.
I had severe sickness called HG (hyperemesis gravidarum) patient.co.uk/health/Pr...
This lasted until 21 weeks, (lucky as it can last the whole preg) then I suppose I had a few weeks of energy and feeling ok, then the pelvic pubis pain SPD started to emerge and now i am anemic and on iron, yuk. I wasn't due my bloods again until gone 28 wks (now 31) and if it wasn't for a strange bruising on my arm I wouldn't of know I was anemic for a weeks, the doctor thought it was my platelets for a while, but it was my red cells that was the prob.
So I am not really enjoying this pregnancy, I feel guilty that I should be, this is my second successful preg and I felt so full of joy with the first, this one I am so ill and tired and uncomfortable, I now experiencing anxiety attacks so another ailment to my list, does this mean I have antenatal depression???
I am worried I will get Post=natal depression now, and I also have fibromyalgia which could flare up after the birth. I am waiting for a 32 wks scan to check my placenta too and have become very anxious. I am self-employed and finding it hard to get everything done to go on maternity leave, i have not been to my course for two weeks now as I am finding it hard to leave the house and deal with people, it took me 20 mins to get up the balls to take my daughter to school this morning, making her late. I am waiting for counseling but cant get appointment until beginning of December. I'm very concerned about my mental health.
I just want to enjoy my preg, maybe it helped because I exercised with my first, yoga, Pilates and went for gentle massages, but because of all this sickness and lack of energy has been harder this time. I am going to a aqua-natal class.
