Pregnancy fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy fatigue


Avatar m tn you are experiencing symptoms related to pregnancy. Your symptoms of tiredness, nausea and fatigue could all be due to premenstrual hormonal changes also. If your periods are regular now and if you miss your period by even a single day you can use a home urine pregnancy test kit to test whether you are pregnant or not. HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) is a hormone that is produced in pregnancy by the developing embryo. HCG values less than 1 are negative.
Avatar f tn Start showing what? Signs of fatigue? Signs of pregnancy? Not sure what you mean. In pregnancy not everyone gets symptoms, some get some, some get none and some get them all. They can all start at different times too, so there's no set timescale that you should start feeling fatigue etc.
2164846 tn?1339637120 I know fatigue is an early effect of pregnancy, but is it normal to feel sleepy ALL the time? For example, I woke up 4 hours ago but I'm ready for a nap!
Avatar f tn I am 18 weeks and I am always tired will it be like this for my entire pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Omg the fatigue in early pregnancy is no joke. I didn't realize how serious it was until I got pregnant. Cant stay up past 9:30pm anymore and it started a couple weeks before I found out.
Avatar n tn I'm 4+5 weeks and this second half of the week I have been the tiredest I have ever been in my whole life, anyone else feeling this way?
721523 tn?1331585402 So, everyone that complains about pregnancy fatigue is a light-weight! I am about 6 weeks along and the pregnancy fatigue is a major IMPROVEMINT over the MS version. I am actually doing well. I was able to go out in the heat and help my husband with the lawn-mower repairs without getting over heated! Happy mothers day to ALL WOMEN. It should be a day to celebrate EVERY woman in your life, not just the mothers you know!
Avatar n tn I'm just 7weeks into pregnancy and am.having frequent fatigue. I also don't feel anything inside my womb. What's the cause?
Avatar f tn I'm 11 weeks pregnant with my first baby, the first 8 or so weeks of my pregnancy were fine. I didn't even know I was pregnant until 5 weeks, and even after that I had next to no symptoms. But the last couple of weeks things have taken a huge turn and it's like I've been hit with every symptom imaginable.
Avatar f tn I just don't understand this fatigue i thought that maybe a womens body goes throught an ordeal preparing for pregnancy and then 6 weeks later has to change again, can u help
Avatar f tn You will perk back up and feel your normal self before you know it! However, later in your pregnancy, you will go through another bout of fatigue as well. I wish you the very best! Take care of yourself! Bye...

10668519 tn?1414029808 I've felt this way my entire pregnancy (20w4d), my doc did a blood test for a different reason and we found out I am anemic. Hopefully the iron supplement will help. So if you haven't had blood work done, you should ask!

Avatar f tn Anyone else pretty early in pregnancy and extremely tired and no energy?? I just feel like I have no energy at all..

1834324 tn?1322144704 I am almost in the third trimester and i think my fatigue is back. This has been the worst part of pregnancy for me. Any suggestions on how to deal with it?
Avatar f tn Get lots of sleep and get up and walk around when you can. The fatigue has been the worst part of pregnancy for me. Prenatal yoga is good too. By 12 or 13 weeks you should start feeling better. Take advantage of it. I'm 27 weeks and the fatigue is coming back:( but all of it will be worth it in the end!
Avatar f tn what do I do I know there bad for you but this is my third pregnancy and I have a 5 year old and 3 year old so I need to keep busy .....what can I subsitute for my monster crave......
Avatar f tn I asked my doctor if this was normal and she said that it is because of my work schedule and my pregnancy. Does anyone have this problem? Does anyone have any advice as to how to feel well rested without all the extra hours of sleep?
Avatar f tn On top of it all my three year old is starting to act out because she never gets to see me. What can I do tho keep my fatigue down more energy but without drinking a bunch of caffeine. Anyone have any tips?
Avatar n tn How soon can symptoms like fatigue occur in a pregnancy? My period ended two weeks ago, but I have been fairly sleepy in the mid to early afternoon the past two days. I've gotten about 7 hours of sleep both nights, which is normal for me.
Avatar f tn I am currently 9 weeks and exhausted alllll the time, can't stay awake all day without pushing myself, the hours seem to drag on, I've never been this tired, ever. My first pregnancy I was never this tired.....Does anyone else have this going on? Some days are better than others but yesterday I didn't have work and couldn't peel myself off the couch for more than 20min without feeling like I needed to lay down again. It's like one activity a day and I'm wiped...
1109996 tn?1267016497 I experienced fatigue during my first trimester too. I took naps as often as I could. It didn't last forever. It got better for me some time around 12 weeks or so. Get as much rest as you can.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone I am 9 wks 4 days. I know fatigue is a common symptom at this time. However, I am extremely tired usually in the early evening around dinner time. Sometimes I find myself taking 2-3 hour naps. Anyone else experiencing this? My friend jokingly said "maybe it's twins" but seriously could that be true? I have had only 1 visit to the dr & Havn't had any tests/bloodwork done yet so I guess ill have to wait to know for sure.
1654035 tn?1332428778 Fatigue is starting to kick my butt again!! It is horrible when I go to meetings at work, I literally fall asleep and feel so bad but cant stop it!! I think my body is trying to tell me its time to not work.......but its not really an option. At least I am getting close! If I go by my first due date of April 5 I am 35 weeks and if you go by my second due date of the 11th then I am 34 weesk, definatly hoping for sooner then later!!
Avatar f tn That nap has constantly turned into 3hr naps or more making me miss much homework/studying time. How does everyone else deal with fatigue? My nap idea isn't working. How about energy foods? What has worked for you?
