So I had a vaginal delivery. I was induced at 39 weeks because at my 37 and 38 week ultrasound they told be the baby stopped growing and I needed to be induced. They said baby will weigh about 6lbs. So I had the pitoin(sp?) and also a epi. I went in at 6pm about 7 they gave me every few hours a pill to help dilat me. Around 4am they broke my water. 7am I had the epi. 9:26am my baby was born. After I was ok I just lost a lot of blood and my iron was really low so I had to have a couple bags of iron. For 2months I had to sleep on the couch and had to have the bassinet next to me because I couldn't get up and down the steps. I felt really sick. I would call the doc and nurses and they would tell me I'm fine that I just needed to rest but it never got better with rest.

I would have my regular doc run a series of blood tests. You could very well have other issues to cause that much fatigue.

go to a different doctor. those symptoms should have disapeared after a week or so.

I've had low iron my whole life and it took me a little longer than i thought was "normal" to heal but yours is too long. Call your normal doc or go to a different OB/GYN
