One of the hardest parts of pregnancy is going through the fatigue that comes along with it. Most women feel that it is hard to get up and be active when they want to sleep and stay in bed. This fatigue usually comes around during your first trimester of pregnancy because the body is not used to being pregnant. Since your body is working nonstop to create a bundle of joy inside of you, increase your blood supply, as well as keeping you healthy, and you can get very tired from the strain. Also, the change in hormones and the rise in progesterone make it hard for you to sleep properly. Not to mention morning sickness will cause you to get tired and nauseous.Do not fret though; this fatigue usually ends around the second trimester of your pregnancy. But it may come back around seven months into the pregnancy since the baby is heavier and it is a lot harder to sleep. You may get backaches and leg cramps from the baby's weight and his moving around constantly. If the fatigue continues into the second trimester of pregnancy, you may want to see your doctor, since it may be a problem.There are many different ways to deal with your pregnancy fatigue to make things easier during your pregnancy. Firstly, you should sleep more and go to bed earlier. Napping at points in the day help you get rest. Even a quick ten minute power nap will help you pick up your energy and beat the fatigue. If you're at work, you can find an empty room or sleep in your car for a while. Body pillows are very helpful since they can make you more comfortable.Remember that since you're pregnant, you should be doing fewer activities and keeping yourself relaxed and stress free. Do not go to social activities that you do not need to go to; they will understand if you are absent. Also, try to get your family members to help you out with the chores and housework. You can also ask your boss to let you take work home so you can do it comfortably, or take a sick day if you're really feeling unwell.Food is an important part of gaining energy, so make sure that you're getting enough in you. During pregnancy, you will need at least 300 more calories a day. Junk foods may seem tempting, but they can make you lose energy after a while. Healthy and natural foods will give you energy to go through the day. Have snacks every so often and do not have too much caffeine in the form of coffee, tea or soft drinks. Instead, have fruits and water.Although you might feel tired, it is important to get a little bit of exercise every day. You can do stretches and take a brief walk, as this will relax you and keep you energized. Remember that you only have to deal with this for a few months, before you know it you'll be up and running again. And soon, you'll have a little bundle of joy which will make everything worth while.
