Really fed up!
Sorry to have a rant but I am feeling really sorry for myself today!! And a bit worried I'm 19+6 and I've been feeling really, really tired the last couple of weeks, almost as rough as I felt in my first trimester! After about 14 weeks I started feeling almost normal again, wouldn't say I was energetic in particular but I was living a normal life, going to work all day and staying up until 10ish etc. But the last couple of weeks I can't seem to keep my eyes open and have to go to bed as soon as I get home from work at 6/7pm, rubbish! Plus am feeling really dizzy all the time now, not just when I get up too quickly, and am sooo thirsty all the time even though I carry a water bottle with me and drink constantly throughout the whole day n evening. At my 16 week antenatal (the only time I've ever been able to see her!), my midwife told me I had low blood pressure, 98/54, and to make sure I kept myself hydrated, and I told her I was thirsty all the time and drinking loads but she said my pee was normal and just to drink more. So today I tried to book an appointment to see her as I'm a bit worried about the dizziness (with driving etc) and I was told she's not available until the New Year!!!!!! Tried ringing the midwife team's helpline but no one ever answers and as a last resort tried calling my midwife's mobile, but it's constantly switched off. Feel really alone and worried. The earliest I can see my GP is tomorrow but bless her as lovely as she is she's not a midwife and usually just tells me to see my midwife or -get some rest'. What am I supposed to do? Have any of you ladies had trouble getting access to a midwife? I just can't believe I am unable to see someone until next year!
