So I'm nearly 26 weeks pregnant with my third pregnancy but second child and I'm struggling emotionally and Ive been assigned a cpn too help with this period and postnatally but my appointment isn't until the end of September. Anyways I've been upset alot and confused by my feelings I lost a baby last year and still haven't come too terms with it my referral too mental health was for that but as it happens as I'm now pregnant that is the focus.
I've been talking too my husband alot about my feelings and stuff and in the most he has been great till this morning when he mentioned if I want my life too improve I need too sort energy levels out. Now he doesn't mean whilst pregnant he means generally and I'm offended an argument followed which he thinks he is right in but am I right too feel offended I have a under active thyroid which yes is medicated but my numbers fall normally between two and three so I still have symptoms I get fatigued easily and I sometimes struggle with energy.
I said does he think I can just flick a switch and be normal again I've struggled massively too accept my life now as it is too how it was before and I've tried most things gluten free a selection of supplements and gentle exercise too improve my health and well-being so too be told I need too sort it out has made me very upset. He thinks it's a statement of fact and how can that offend me.
I have seen gp and an endo and basically the common thread is if my numbers are under five I'm well medicated which we all know isn't necessarily the case but that's a brick wall I've tried too climb with little success. So how do I make my beloved husband understand I don't choose too be fatigued Lose my hair and feel depressed its something i can't always help and I'm not making it up ? Anyone else struggle with others lack of understanding ?
Sorry for long rant
