Is it normal...pregnancy question

Is it normal to feel sore and just plain tired all over your whole body? I feel it in my legs mostly...but the kicker is I'm only about 7 weeks. I don't know why I feel this way already. I'm kind of worried. It seems too early for that. I never felt this way with my first...

  • I was more tired in the first few months of my pregnancy than I was later in my pregnancy. It is normal and not psychological. Your body is changing.

  • It is completely normal to be exhausted during your first trimester! Your body is manufacturing the placenta during the first 12 weeks and that takes up quite a bit of energy. Not to mention progesterone level is increasing, causing fatigue. Your body is experiencing increased blood flow, a ton of hormones, and has a whole new person growing in it!!

    Congratulations!! :D
