    Vitamin deficiency and being exposed to a LOT of germs from a toddler that touches everything is a combo that = illnesses.

    My friend swears that nursing makes her more tired and rundown. She has stopped nursing twice so she says it happened to her. I can't say from personal experience tho since I have been pg or nursing or both since 2006, yikes!

    As part of a checkup perhaps also have thyroid checked. Hypothyroidism can cause fatigue and sluggishness.

    Here is a big hug from me. these forums are the ideal place to vent and whine. raising a toddler and a pre-schooler and being a wife is a monumental task. you are doing great. I wish you were feeling better too.
