  • It's normal at any age of pregnancy. Just try to be more cautious. With my first pregnancy I fell up the stairs lol. My last pregnancy I fell up my front porch stairs while holding my second born. I would drop a lot of things and even hit walls when walking lol. If you do fall you need to call your OB right away and let them know. They need to know these things. So any concerns you have please talk to your OB about them.

  • Its normal to feel that way through pregnancy. Just take it easy and stay well-hydrated. Eat 6 small meals a day instead of 3 large ones, it will help too.

  • Either it's low blood sugar, or it could be thyroid related. I had that and both were the cause. Ask your OB, and congrats!
