It is not unusual to experience extreme fatigue and muscle pains /aches following sepsis, you also have the additional factor that you are pregnant which will add to your fatigue. It is difficult to predict how long it will take before things start to improve, everyone is different, factors we know that contribute to a longer recovery are: being older, a stay in intensive care, having previous chronic illnesses and length of stay in hospital. However these are generalisations and do not apply to every one but hopefully you will fall into the group that has a quicker period of recovery.
You seem to be doing all the right things, just remember to take things easy and take regular rest and pace yourself, when recovering from sepsis people tend to have good days and bad days, there is always the risk of pushing your self too much on the good days and paying the cost for this the next day. Most people worry about getting sepsis again just remember you know the signs of sepsis and should you become unwell again you will know to seek help and get treated early. Make sure your midwife is up to date with what has been happening with you so they can give advice and support if needed. You can also call us at the sepsis support team on 0800 389 6255 if there is anything you want to talk to us about.
