  • It is normal to be exhausted early in the pregnancy. However, some exhaustion is caused by low iron levels. It's best to talk with your doctor to have your blood tested. It's just a matter of taking an iron suppliment pill if that is the case. Your exhaustion levels can't be determined on here, so we can't really tell you if your level is normal or not. That's why it is best to talk to your OB.

  • Yes very normal. Your body is working hard at making a baby.

  • LOL yep. In the first trimester, a pregnant woman will use as much energy in a day as a marathon it's no surprise! It could be low iron, though, which isn't a huge thing. Easily fixed with a supplement i fyour doc says you need one. Also, keep up with those prenatals, they are gross but they DO help.
