  • Don't move so quickly and make sure your blood sugar is up high enough.. it helps

  • It's normal but you should mention it to your doc. Usually it's low blood sugar and if it's in the morning it's because you haven't eaten anything recently.

  • could be anemia.. low iron... try eatting food higher in iron to see if that helps.. honestly a nice bowl of cereal in the morning always seemed to give me an extra boast for the day when I was pregnant (the healthy kinds lol).

  • It's pretty normal - you need a lot of rest at this time! Don't stand up to fast - maybe you should get your blood-sugar tested. Sometimes this happens with justational diabetes that happens during some pregnancies!
