My Girlfriend will be 30 weeks pregnant tomorrow. She is doing great with no problems whatsoever. All of our appointments have been going great and have heard nothing but good from the Doctors. What I'm just worried about is that she is sleeping too much.
She sleeps a lot, and if she isn't sleeping, she is just lying in bed. She is not obese at all. She is really skinny, she is young, under the age of 20. She does not smoke, drink or do drugs. She does not take any pills at all no matter the situation. She only takes her Prenatal Vitamin. Just to sum it up without having to say everything, my Girlfriend is doing the best that any woman could ever do while they are pregnant. She is really cautious with everything and she worries about everything as well.
It's just mainly been the past week or so that she has not really gotten out of bed to do anything. Also, lately she has been having pains in her legs that shock her and it makes it hard for her to walk. She also gets headaches a lot too, but I know that's from to much sleep.
Just this morning, she was lying down and we were talking, and all of a sudden she told me that she was dizzy and couldn't see very well. I guess her vision was just a bit blurry, but she could still see how many fingers I had held up.
I would say that throughout 24 hours every day, she is in bed lying down for 18 - 20 hours. She eats a little bit, but we when we eat our big meals, it is usually late at night, sometimes after 3 in the morning. I'm just very worried that something is wrong, or that something bad could happen from lying in bed so long. I love this girl so much, and I don't know what I would do if anything were to happen to her or our child. Please if anyone can give me any information at all, that would be amazing. Thanks.View Thread
