    Some recently mentioned remission of ME symptoms during pregnancy. Maybe this explains.

    After having been ill for a number of years, I felt amazing in my pregnancy!!! I never put on any weight and the baby fed off the fat reserves accumulated during my illness. I actually weighed less on delivery than I had before getting pregnant and gave birth to a healthy 3.7kg baby. I felt extremely energetic and got up to all sorts of things I hadn't been able to do in ages. However within hours of giving birth the party ended: I dislocated my pelvis in the delivery and picked up a hospital bug as well (pseudomonas infection). I was extremely ill for months afterwards.
