Shaking/shivers during pregnancy.
Greetings to you all,
I'm a soon-to-be father,
and my girlfriend is 5 months pregnant...
I was just wondering if anyone on here could provide me
with any information on a slight problem she seems to be
experiencing. From time to time, she goes through a phase
of semi-violent shaking/shivers. To my knowledge, only when
she sleeps, or is near sleep. We just had an episode of
them, and I managed to calm her down enough to get them to stop.
She says that she can not stop them herself, and that after
they're over, she feels "like she just ran twelve miles". That's something
that I know epileptics experience, but these shakes/shivers are much
more mild than anything I've seen an epileptic (my brother, for one) experience...They didn't start until she was pregnant, and actually only in the past few weeks...To my knowledge she has them about 2-3 times a week.
I would appreciate any information or help regarding this topic, as it is quite scary. This is our first child, and we would *really* like to know what is going on. Thank you in advance,
