im so sleepy

I am pregnant, in my first trimester and I am so damn tired all the time. I am miserable at work because all I want to do is sleep. I can barely keep my eyes open. So ladies tell me...how do you stay awake and alert at work when you are pregnant and cant have caffeine?

  • I had that, it lasted until 4 months. For me, ice cold orange juice helped.

  • Can you get up and move around? When I was pregnant sometimes a bit of moving around (walking, stretching) helped. Also try a cold drink- orange juice worked well.

  • I am struggling with that right now sooo bad. I think I could sleep 15 or more hours a day if I could. I was tired in the first trimester too, but not like this. I hope u get some good advice I can use too.
