    23 weeks and feeling horrible
    An_217294 posted:
    I have been feeling awful lately. I get a burning sensation in my stomach and all over weakness at the same time. This happens often and when it does I feel like I need to eat or lay down immediately. The other day at work I felt this way and started sweating and lost my vision for a few minutes. I was at work and the nurse called 911 and I went to the ER. They said my blood levels were low, but my OB says its normal for pregnancy. I also have trouble getting a good breath and wake up at night struggling to breath. I just feel all over horrible every day and never know how much I can do. I have been eating well and often, as well as taking prenatal vitamins. I've only gained 10 pounds since my pregnancy began, so now I'm 100 lbs. According to my last sono, the baby is exactly the size he should be. Anyone else feeling this way or know what I can do to feel better and make it through the next few months?
