Pregnancy/Maternity

Common discomforts during pregnancy

Fatigue

The first trimester is often the one where mothers only want one thing….to sleep! As a matter of fact, progesterone is responsible for knocking you out in the afternoon and making you want to nap all the time. In the second trimester everything goes back to normal and your energy level goes back up. However, during the last trimester, the baby’s weight and all the physical changes bring back fatigue.

Allow yourself a few breaks and split your days to be more efficient. Get plenty of sleep and listen to your body’s signals. Make sure your fatigue isn’t due to anaemia. Talk to your doctor if you are in doubt.
