oh my I am always so so so tired in the first trimester. I also need to take two naps, go to sleep early. Its really hard. But by the time the second trimester comes along you should be feeling much better, and even the third trimester, while it is tiring, is not nearly as bad as the first.
During my 1st trimester I was very lazy.I sleep most of the time.I couldn't even go to work that's why I decided to stop working,aside from suffering too much on morning sickness I just feel so helpless.But on my 2nd trimester I'm a lil bit back to normal but I gained weight that's why I'm kinda slow.I feel a lot better now on my 3rd tri.excited to see my boy on august.
i hear it goes away around 18 years after giving birth.
jokes aside.. i was always tired during my pregnancy. i was lucky that i worked the evening shift (3-10) so i could get a quick nap before work and go to bed immediately after. but when i worked days, the busy rush was right about the time i napped for my evening shifts. i was in a restaurant and the only worker (small family owned, not my family though) so i would just tell people it would be a little longer than it would take me to actually make it, so i didn't have to rush. when the customers came in and saw my belly *normally* they didn't complain.
eventually, you do get used to it all. or you start running on autopilot.
That is normal, though eating energy-giving foods and having lots of water also can help with feeling fatigued most of the time. Taking my prenatal vitamins consistently helped a lot as well as eating food rich in vitamin Bs But eventually you'll feel better.
I remember how exhausted I was when I was pregnant with Grace, but it did get better with second trimester. I'm now 6 weeks with my second and feelling even more tired than last time. Cannot wait until this part has passed.
