Sorry, long story. I developed HELLP with DS1 in 2007. I did not develop it with DS2 in 2009. I know they tested and tested due to my history, but thankfully the only thing wrong was PIH and mild anemia. During my pregnancy, I was tired. Blamed it on being pregnant. After pregnancy, I was tired, blamed it on taking care of 2 small kids. 11 months later, I am still tired. I've been blaming it on being a working mom with 2 kids, not the greatest diet, and not exercising regularly. I just took a nap wih the boys and am still tired at 4 in the afternoon. And now I am bruising easily. I noticed it a couple months ago, but today my husband pointed out a huge bruise on the back of my arm. Like baseball size big. Dark purple. And I have no idea how I got it. So looking online, it seems it could be decreased liver function. Time to make a doctors appointment... ugh. But I hope they find something because I am really tired of being tired.
Anyone else have the issues?
