Getting Pregnant <
Long term TTC & infertility

I have noticed in the past week or more that my skin on my face has become quite spotty but not greasy, just it's usual dryness. I never used to have problems with spots, even during puberty. I have also found that I seem to heat up when I sleep to a point where it wakes me up & I'm all clammy & miserable due to feeling sticky & too hot!
I think in the past month or two I have found that my hair gets greasy within 24hours of washing it. I was one of those lucky girls that didnt need to wash her hair every day or 2, it would usually be about every 3 days. But now i can't go one morning without needing to wash it (TWICE)
Tonight & last night whilst lying in bed snuggled up watching abit of Celebrity get me out of here, I've been feelin nauseus & it lasts for around 45mins - 1hr30mins. Im either constantly tired & can't seem to settle & sleep peacefully (I'm usually a heavy sleeper) or I sleep for hours & hours on end!!
Surely all these symptoms can't be menstrual hormones?? I've never had all these problems before - ever!! I'm so fed up that I can't get on with every day to day life as normal & my mood swings are beginning to become a pain in the backside (I can tell my H2B isn't too chuffed but I know he understands my body is obviously still in shock from the MC!)
If i went to my GP they would fill me with a load of crap about my body adjusting & to give it time (Their usual answer to any of my problems since the MC) I just think they're being lazy & can not be bothered with tests!! Theres no possibility of changing GPs because in my area, each patient is assigned to one GP.
Does anybody know of any advice? Could these symptoms be a possible sign of something? Is this normal?
What I've also found strange is, I usually crave chocolate when my AF visits but since Saturday 29th (Day before AF arrived) all I've been wanting to eat is basically anything that contains high carbs i.e. toast, pasta, bagels, crumpets. Odd!!
Please help me if you can :cry: I'm miserable living like this!! xx

I have been to my GP with my worries that there is a reason that there is such difficulty for us to conceive but they have basically said to be patient.
We've been trying to conceive for around 2years now & have had 1 MC 7months ago - I was nearly 9 weeks gone. xx

Unfortunately J-Jenko I am unable to afford a private consultation as I was made redundant nearly 2 weeks ago & I get married in 8 weeks THEN move down south 2 weeks after :lol:
The majority of ladies on TTC after MC, their AF returned within the 12weeks that are recommended. My GP basically said it was all down to mother nature waiting around (Grrr!!)
I may have to visit back my GP & ask if I may be referred for some tests because I'm sure after 7 months of waiting for AF & it has only just arrived back ever so lightly with all these new symptoms that there may be somethin that has not been noticed yet. Even if it's something like being slightly anaemic, aslong as I found out about it, I would be happy because it hasn't gone un-noticed & un-treated.
I'm sure my weight couldn't have much effect on my AF being on holiday for the past 7 days & return with terrible effects, because I'm only classed as overweight, wheras when I fell pregnant in March, I was clinically obese (Only a loss of 6 pounds but being on the border, it has still made a difference!!)
