It's amazing how quickly this makes a difference!

I worked the last 6 days, 12 hour shifts each time (I'm a critical care nurse) plus a daily 10 mile run. I've worked multiple days in a row before and been fine. Now that I'm pregnant? I'm still completely exhausted. The last three days were a struggle to get through, I had to force myself to work out, and today I didn't want to get out of bed. I did make myself go for a run and do some weights, but man is this already making a difference! But the fatigue is the only symptom I really have, so it could be worse.

That's a lot for someone who isn't preggo! I would take it a little easier so you don't wear yourself down! Maybe stick to 5 mile runs instead?

I'm not pregnant and I can only go a mile on my elliptical before feeling like I'm going to die, lol! And I workout on it everyday! I literally can't imagine running 10 miles while pregnant, or even not pregnant, lol!

I've been running for years, and doing distance running for years, so 10 miles really isn't that much. Once I get started, I'm fine to finish, it's just getting the energy up to go that I'm struggling with. And I crash hard after.

It's your body but that seems too much. The first trimester is a lot of work already, clearly it's too much or you wouldn't be so exausted.

Maby increase calories or better decrease the runs. I have a feeling your just going to push through, just remember it's okay for life to change a little. GL

I'm fine now, but I will not be picking up that many extra days. Those had already been scheduled before I found out I was pregnant though, so I couldn't change it. I have increased my caloric intake by the recommended 300 daily.
