  • Internally your going through a lot of changes, not to mention your hormones! I would say's normal. This is my 3rd pregnancy and it's kicked my butt from the START! Every pregnancy is different.....your next might be easier, or your previous one could have been easier.

  • It's normal. I'm right here with you. I'm having "prenancy brain" where you it feels like I'm running on 2 braincells. I keep trying to hide it at work and pretend I'm up to par, but it's hard!

  • Oh yes, I remember those days, I used to joke that my brain and body aren't cooperating because they are too busy creating life.

  • Yes, pregnancy can do that sometimes. I remember when I was pregnant with my son, I only worked part time and I would be out of breath just sitting at my desk. LOL! Glad I work from home now. :-) Congrats on your pregnancy! Hang in there, enjoy the pampering time.

    Best Wishes!

  • Nutrition is going to be a huge factor for you with energy and sleep! Be sure you're getting plenty of protein and electrolytes
