  • I've had this happen when I was anemic after surgery. I'm sure there are other reasons. Give your doctor a call and see if you need to go in to be checked.

  • I've had that happen after the birth of my twins (vaginal birth) i went to the dr and my iron was extremely low! get in touch with you dr you could be anemic! they'll just recomend iron pills i take over the counter ones they're called slow fe they don't make you constipated and all that fun stuff!

  • I agree could be anemia, hypoglycemia, deyhydration etc...

    Make sure you are resting as much as possible, eating every 2-3 hours ( even if it's a small balanced snack) and drinking plenty of fluid.

    Also it's good to keep taking prenatal vitamins afterwards if you are breastfeeding.
