During your pregnancy it is common to be feeling tired or exhausted, especially in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. If you are naturally a very energetic person and then you are hit with fatigue (extreme tiredness) during pregnancy, it can be quite a surprise for you as you are hit with this difficult transition. You may find yourself sleeping double the amount you usually sleep in order to feel somewhat well rested.
Congratulations and welcome to your first trimester of your pregnancy!
You have just seen that pink line on your pregnancy test or your doctor has confirmed you are pregnant. It may feel like you have a wave of emotions, whether this was planned pregnancy or a surprise pregnancy, all feelings are valid. Take a deep breath and be in the moment.
You are now in your first trimester of pregnancy.
