About 13 weeks ago, I delivered my stillborn son, Nevin. At the time I was 27 weeks pregnant. My husband and I are just about ready to start trying again after our tragedy. I have been working hard at trying to lose the baby weight for about 2 months

To no avail. I am working out hard everyday, and eating 5-6 mini meals a day(following a strict organic whole foods diet, mostly fruits, veggies, lean protein and healthy carbs). I had a physical done at the beginning of November and all of my levels seem to be fine. I am feeling stressed, could it be adrenal fatigue? If so how can I tell, and how can I treat it? I go for regular massage therapy and yoga to destress and practice deep breathing. I gained 18 lbs in 27 weeks of pregnancy and have 12 more lbs to lose.

HI Anon,
Welcome to EmpowHER.  Your adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones that are essential to life. The medical term adrenal insufficiency, or Addison's disease, refers to inadequate production of one or more of these hormones as a result of an underlying disease.
Adrenal insufficiency can be diagnosed by blood tests. It's important to see a doctor and let him know your symptoms.
