I am 3 weeks postpartum, and tired all the time. I mean all the time-like I can sleep all day, wake up and a few hours later exhausted again. Also have a constant headache that I have had since I left the hospital, and the only thing that seems to work is the pain pills they prescribed me, even though I know I cant take those forever...
Is all of this just hormones balancing back out? Has anybody else had these problems, and if so what have you done to help them??

I would talk to your doc. There might be something more going on then just hormones. Sometimes feeling overly tired means you are low on iron. Headaches can also be an indication you are low on iron or it could also indicate high blood preasure. I would let your doc. know how you are feeling and just get a check-up. Might be a simple fix of increasing your iron. Also make sure you are still taking your prenatal vits. those will also help, especially if you are nursing......that takes a lot out of your body.
