I feel extremely tired
mybabyg posted:
My daughter is ten months old already, I had a c-section after 12 hours of natural labor. I'm wondering if anyone else is in my same boat, I feel horridly tired most of my days, like someone drained all of my energy out of me. I have lost 60lbs of the baby weight and don't eat bad, I exercise when I can, but finding time is hard. I take vitamins, I just don't understand why I feel this way. Is this normal? has my body not yet recovered enough? it's not just normal tired, it's tired to the extreme, like i have to lay down right away and gain some energy. I am 26 and this is my first baby. any advice??

I would make an appt to see your doctor. If your getting enough rest at night, eating right and getting some exercise daily, you should have enough energy through the day. I had both my children via c-section, no choice with the first child, I had placenta previa with her. I was 24, and 31, when I had my 2. It's hard to find time to exercise especially if you are working full time. Put your daughter in her stroller and start walking. Go early morning or after dinner to avoid the extreme heat during the hot months.

I would make an appointment with your doctor. You could have low iron or some other issues causing this lack of energy. You should not be this tired 10 months after having your daughter. Good luck
