IM ALWAYS so tired and im only about 13 weeks.. i mean even for me to wake up in the morning im so lazy and cant get up.. even taking a showe , brushing my teeth or shaving i hate doing im so tired all the time....i cant really eat , if i do its maybe only once a day in the afternoon ... i try drinking water but sometimes cnt keep it down so i eat alot of ice.... also for some reason i can keep coke down so i drink about 2 cans of soda a day or more.. is it bad to drink so much soda? is it nomal to be so tired all day eveyday?

Soda isn't the best option, obviously, but it's better than absolutely nothing. Have you tried mixing fruit juice with soda water? That might help!

It has alot of sugar so you may want to watch what other sugar your eating

Being tired is definitely normal. I'd try to avoid that much soda if possible, or at least go for non-caffinated options. Caffine is a diuretic so caffinated beverages don't really count for hydration. Maybe try to switch to ginger ale or fruit juice with soda water like Amber said. Hopefully this stage passes soon and you can get back to being yourself. Good luck!

How is your iron? Yes, feeling tired is normal, to some extent. Be sure you're eating lots of iron rich foods everyday. That is better for you than a supplement.

I'd lay off the soda - it's just dehydrating you more. I like sparkling water and whole fruit juice, not fake sugary crap.

I agree with laying off the soda..fatigue is definitely normal, but the soda isnt helping.

Hope you get better mama :-)

I'm the same way and I'm 20 weeks. I find on the days I MAKE myself shower I feel better.

And coke really helps my sickness too! Its fine in moderation:)

 I was like that UNTIL 13 weeks and I had the same love affair with soda.  Not to mention, this may sound weird, but I swear my saliva tastes like venom and water just makes it worse.  I found that chewing gum helped with my morning sicknes.s.

I agree
