  • Yes that is very normal. We all get it. Our body's our work very hard and gets tired faster.

  • Don't fight it. You'll need your rest for when that baby comse. And it doesn't end in the second or third trimester. Nor does it end after you have the baby. So...get used to it. lol Is this your first?

  • I felt energized in my second and third trimesters, but the first I was tired, and of course after the baby came, very very tired.

  • Definintely. I'm only 4 weeks and I'm exhausted! I'm used to going to bed at 12. It's 9 now and I'm about to go to bed. All day I have been so tired, however, having a 17-month-old little boy makes it difficult to get any Z's! =)

    With my son I got an energey surge in my 2nd Trimester and then tired all over again in my 3rd.
