Q:

Hello mommies.. I m feeling very tired.. Its like i feel its too strenuous to lift my hands and legs.. I hVe only 2 more months to start my office life again.. Is there anyway to regain my energy level back.. Like how i was before my pregnancy. I m doing yoga and a slow walk as well.

Are you breast feeding baby? Drink more water. Have your gyno given you calcium or any other tablets after delivery. If not, talk to her. Initially tiredness will be there... coz your whole body has changed and again changing. Also.. no sleep or disturbed sleep will have major impact. Try to take enough rest. Continue with yoga and walking.

Hi Sangeetha, exclusive breastfeeding does require a lot of energy... I always used to say, till day before delivery, I had so much energy that I could run if I wanted( I had to literally remind myself that I was pregnant!), but after delivery till almost 5-6 months I felt so drained that I could not do anything, inspite of fluid intake and healthy diet... Now I feel my old self again... So maybe thats your case too... But you should drink atleast 3 ltrs of water, and follow a good diet.... take care dear...

Yes sheeba.. I was cooking for the family till the last date during pregnancy.. I was very tired after delivery . I took rest for 2 months and i started cooking and taking care of my family.. But sometimes when i just lay in the bed i feel i am totally drained out.. Realized that i am not taking enough rest and water.. Will try balancing it

Sheeba Vijesh

hey dear, you should take care of yourself first... its ok to be a little selfish after delivery, or health will deteriorate quickly after menopause...

Ok sheeba.. ☺️ Thank you
