Are there any mums out there who have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

I'm 34 weeks pregnant with my first child. I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in 1996. I've been really sick with my pregnancy, and am a bit worried how I'll cope with having CFS and a newborn.

Would love to chat with anyone who can relate.

I have chronic fatigue syndrome for several years before my daughter was born and I had a hard time with the fatigue and pregnancy. After my daughter was born, I just did not have the energy to care for her like I needed to so I had to move in with family for help. Eventually, I found some supplements that give me energy and help me get through the day. My daughter is now two. It is important to have support after the baby is born to help you when you feel you need to rest. I know how frustrating and emotional having CFS can be. If I can be of anymore support, don't hesitate to contact me.
