Get Plenty of Rest


Do you constantly feel like you need a nap? Fatigue is one of the most common and challenging symptoms in the first trimester of pregnancy because your body is working hard to build the placenta — the lifeline for your baby. Certain foods and habits can affect your energy level, so find out what to do and what to avoid when you're feeling exhausted. Get at least eight hours of sleep a night, if possible, and take cat naps when you can. Also keep in mind that exercise is a surprisingly good energy-booster when you're pregnant.
