As early as your first week of pregnancy, you can begin to experience fatigue. Many women get tired during the day, but it’s quite common for those who are pregnant. You may feel profound exhaustion as well as feel mentally and physically drained.
Unusual fatigue is caused by levels of the hormone progesterone rising in your system. Blood sugar and blood pressure levels rising and falling can also make you feel lethargic. To combat fatigue during your pregnancy, schedule some time into your day for resting. Let the people around you know that you may at one point need their assistance. Additionally, adding more iron and protein into your diet can help make you feel better.
