Post subject: 6 weeks pregnant and so tired!
This is my first pregnancy so Im not quite sure what to expect. Im six weeks pregnant and for the last week and a half I am constantly tired no matter how much sleep I get! Is this normal and if so how long does it last?

this apparently is normal. i am nearly 9 weeks and still at that stage. the more i sleep the worse i am. i cant bloody win. i think it it is your body getting used to the hormones. so nothing to worry about. the best thing i found is fresh air and plenty of water.

congratulations by the way.

I'm nearly 7 weeks and know what you mean. My work colleagues keep asking if I'm ok as I keep going off in a bit of a daze and just want to sleep all the time.
It's not just the tiredness, I just can't be bothered to do anything either, which is not like my usual self at all. Is anyone else feeling like this?

Post subject: Tiredness
I'm in my sixth week as well and have definitely noticed the tiredness thing. I'm usually a real night owl but I have been getting really tired at about 9.30 every evening and have been having plenty of early nights. I also feel in a bit of a daze, so I'm not particularly motivated to do things. I'm lucky though - it's so exciting being pregnant for the first time!

Hi Girls I am 26 wks and to be honest during the week when at work I am in bed by 9 so not sure it does get better.I do have to commute so have quite a long working day so to be honest if I am tired i will sleep. Hope you start to feel not so sleepy soon. Remember though if you are tired ,sleep dont feel bad your doing an important job. Take Care xx

im 6 wks and im being hit with the tiredness too, i went to bed last night early and my 7year old daughter said "wow mum your going to bed early" just shows what a night owl i usualy am lol. I dont really have many other symptons, my bb's are ok and I have cramping but nothing too bad, my skin has gone awful and my face has broken out, but it is generally the tiredness at the mo.

I'm 9 weeks now and feeling so tired all the time, hoping it gets better as my job is a very manual one and I could sleep standing some days LOL.

I think everything started to even out for me and I felt happy not depressed and not so tired around 15 weeks.

Keep us updated xxx

Yes, tiredness was by far the worst symptom for me. For about two months I was going to bed at about 8.30 PM on a work night, and sleeping for a couple of hours during the day at weekends.

I think it started to improve for me at around 12 weeks, and I finally felt back to "normal" at about 15-16 weeks. Now at 18 weeks, my energy has returned completely. Were it not for my small bump, I wouldn't feel pregnant at all ...!
