I am with you! I wake up tired after getting 9 hours sleep and drag throughout the entire day. I am almost 6 weeks. Any advice as to how to gain some energy?

I'm the same way at 7 weeks! Can't keep my eyes open even after a good night's sleep!

I a so exhausted that I feel like putting my head on my desk and napping. I am having such a hard time staying awake!!

Same here, I kick my feet up at work here as much as I can, I sleep on my breaks and my lunch.

It could be due to lack of iron, but most women are really tired in the first trimester. Your prenatal vitamin should take care of your iron requirements, but if you're concerned try adding more spinach into your diet. Get as much sleep as you can. That baby is using tons of energy right now developing his/her organs.

I am 10 weeks and also very exhausted. Hubby doesn't understand and he's upset that I'm not spending time with him! I can't stay awake to do laundry or anything else by the time I get home.

Very! I wait till about noon when most of the dept is out to lunch and I turn up my internet radio and have a little snooze! I'm always awake when everyone comes back and the does wake me up too! I'm sorry but this is tough and I can't have anymore caffeine....


Davida - April 22

sorry...I meant to say: the phone wakes me up! I was in the middle of a yawn!

I'm in my 7th week - and I've heard that you get your energy back in the second trimester, so i'm hoping that's true...

I was always a late sleeper, but now I just fall on the bed after dinner. I don't like waking up in the morning either.

I am 5 Weeks 6 days and do okay until I sit down and then it's like oh my gosh I am so freaking tired... I think if I keep going I can block out how tired I am. But as soon as I sit.. I'm done

Hi Kathy! You and I are exactly at the same stage with the pregnancy. Today is the first day of my sixth week. I am so tired too. I spent the whole weekend on the couch and could barely get the dishes and laundry done. When normally I pack my schedule with all sorts of errands and have no problem finishing them. Had a little cramping this morning with some white discharge. Are you experienceing that at all?
