In the beginning, pregnancy can also lower your blood pressure and blood sugar, which can make you feel tired. But a lack of sleep can cause your blood sugar levels to rise, increasing the risk for. Third Trimester Fatigue.

In late pregnancy, you will most likely begin to feel tired again. At this point you will be carrying extra weight from the baby, maybe having trouble sleeping, and dealing with frequent urination more often. The following are a list of ways to cope with the fatigue you may be experiencing. Yes, fatigue is especially common during the first trimester, and the condition tends to return in late pregnancy.

No one knows for sure what causes fatigue in early pregnancy, but it’s possible that hormonal changes – like the dramatic rise in progesterone – are at least partly responsible. For many women, exhaustion is one of the first signs of pregnancy, and they constantly feel tired. Not to get too scientific on you, but we’re about to get more scientific on you: This extreme fatigue you feel in early pregnancy is not in your head, so don’t fight it.

It’s caused by hormonal changes, and the fact your body is producing more blood to give your growing baby the nutrients they need. To put it simply, you are exhausted all the time. You might feel like you can simply take a nap most of the day. Sure, you have little spurts of energy, but often times it is quickly followed up with instant exhaustion.

Pregnancy Fatigue Tip #1 – “Rest up. During pregnancy you may wonder whether your baby’s movements mean that they’re awake and aware. There is awareness, but in reality, your baby spends most of their time in the womb doing something. An umbilical hernia in pregnancy is rare, but it does happen.

Usually, treatment can wait until after delivery, but if you do need treatment while pregnant, it’s safe for you and baby. Extreme fatigue Feeling tired all of a sudden even though you got plenty of sleep? Well, your body is going through a lot of hormone changes right after you conceive, and it’s forming all those new cells, so feeling tired makes total sense. Totally normal to be tired!

You’re in the third trimester, pregnant with twins and have a demanding job! I’m in the health field and was put on leave at 26 weeks (I’m in Canada and it’s relatively common here to stop at that time). I’m amazed at women who can keep working late into their twin pregnancy.

Even though it’s frustrating, being tired is actually a good sign, since (like nausea) it indicates that your pregnancy hormones are circulating and your body is hard at work helping your baby.

  • I’m 4 weeks pregnant and the fatigue is real even if I get 8 hours of sleep at work and driving I drift off I cant drink caffeine what can I do to fight it off ����

  • I’m struggling with this so bad. I went through cancer last year and needed 6 months of chemo, plus I work nights (NICU nurse). Then, surprise surprise I’m now pregnant! Which is very exciting but I literally don’t have the energy to do anything now. Looking forward to hopefully feeling better in the second trimester.

  • 5wks pregnant today. Very tired, sleeping a lot. 7-8 hrs at night, and a couple 2hr naps in the day. Still ready for bed after that. Nausea upon waking from any sleep, moving very slow.

  • I found your video searching to see if this tiredness was normal. I literally feel like heavy weight walking around. I could have slept for 10 hours really good and get up, eat something, and within two hours I will feel tired again. Naps are a regular thing. I feel exhausted and I am not used to this lol. I feel uncomfortable at times. Just like an underlying uncomfortableness and I cant put my finger on why.. probably blood pressure.
    Thank you for the video!
