Rest rest rest! Please look after yourself NOW! I didn't know I had glandular fever....I now have ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) 9 years and counting about 15% of glandular fever sufferers progress to CFS.
I would really think twice about TTC with glandular fever- you need rest. Plus you have an infection.
Good quality multivitamin and seeking help from someone who specialises in fatigue will be a huge help. Quality sleep and lots of it. Not sure where you are located but in Victoria there are a few clinics that specialise in fatigue from ALL aspects of your life.
As for the preg- I def had complications TTC ( but obviously my condition is quite different/more severe) pregnancy has been smooth sailing for baby but not for me!!

Hi ShaeleeJane! So sorry to hear you ended up with ME/CFS. That must be very difficult to cope with day to day. I already have complications from a different virus I got around 12 years ago. I ended up with vestibular damage & that leads to me having a lot of fatigue, nowhere near as bad as CFS but I still have to be careful with how much I do. When I told my friend I now had glandular fever & had been told to rest she said 'if you rest anymore you'll be comatose!' which was funny but depressing at the same time! I'm in WA so not sure what is available here. Thanks so much for the warning & for sharing
