Local people in general tend to be on the hypochondriac side. So compound that with the various complications of pregnancy and general living and you can imagine it might not all be plain sailing.
Exactly. This is what I am dealing with. She keeps saying her heart is racing. I put the pulse oximeter on her finger. 82. Every time.

Serena Williams won the Australian Open at 8 weeks pregnant. My girlfriend is 8 weeks pregnant and every day is a litany of complaints about headaches, stomaches, too tired to move, etc. Is this normal? It seems like she's really milking this. No pun intended. Do all Cambodian women do this?
No, it's not normal. Most Khmer ladies take it like a champ, at least that's what I see. But because of her diet (low fibre, low vegies, low friet, high carbs) it might be tough. Why not take her for a checkup (blood test) and consider some multivitamins for both her and the baby (Pregnacare, don't buy Pregnacase plus, they will charge you double for some added fish oil, buy the fish oil separately if desired)?
