Is it normal to be this tired at 6 weeks pregnant?

I have been tired for a couple of weeks but the past couple of days, I have been exhausted. I never sit down must less take a nap and now i am having to lay down a couple times a day. I get up in the morning and lay back down shortly after. I hate this! I feel horrible. Is it normal?

  • Normal. Your heart is moving 2 times more blood now and working harder so you will be more tired.

  • completely normal. I would work from 7 am to 3 pm come home eat and then go to bed at 4 pm and not wake up till 6:30 am the next day to go to work. My husband was freaking out because he thought something was wrong. I told him, Creating life is extremely exhausting, so dont be expecting to much else out of me. lol

  • Yes, it is very normal, my first trimester I was exhausted. I did re-gain alot of energy the 2nd trimester, hopefully that will happen for you as well.
