Are You Feeling Constantly Tired in Early Pregnancy?
Are you struggling because you are feeling constantly tired in early pregnancy? If only you could just be at home in bed and sleep when you need to…but that’s just not possible because you need to work and you’ve got things to do.
Why Am I Feeling So Tired in Early Pregnancy?
There are a combination of factors which lead to feeling so tired when you are pregnant. It’s often a surprise for first time mothers as they don’t expect to experience pregnancy tiredness so early on.
Remember that you are creating a tiny human and your body is working very hard in the background. Think about which pregnancy week you are in and what you are creating at that moment in time. Perhaps an eye or a nose, a heart or lungs. Pretty amazing really! No wonder you are feeling tired as your energy supplies are being directed into this wonderful creation.
Pregnant and I Feel So Exhausted
Some days can be really hard going during pregnancy, when you’re just so tired but you don’t have the time to take a nap. Then nights can feel so long because you wake up with insomnia and can’t get back to sleep again. It’s so frustrating being wide awake at night during early pregnancy when you feel so tired during the day.

What Are The Best Tips For Feeling Less Tired in Early Pregnancy?
Take short power naps during the day. Can you find a quiet place and set an alarm on your phone to wake you up again after ten minutes? I worked during my pregnancies and drove to work in my car. I would take short breaks between working and meetings and sleep in my car. I figured that should be ok seeing as the smokers always took their ten minutes as well.
Watch what you eat. Avoid foods that cause heartburn as it can be most uncomfortable and keep you awake at night. You need to have a good night’s sleep. Eating small amounts and often, avoiding foods which trigger heartburn (LINK), eating foods which calm stomach acid (such as bananas and natural yoghurt). Allow yourself to have a good, deep sleep so that you have more energy for during the day. Create night time snacks and keep them next to your bed so that you can satisfy midnight hunger attacks immediately and fall happily back to sleep.
Invest in a cuddly and supporting pregnancy pillow. It makes such a great difference when you can get your body in a good position and feel balanced. Are you a C Type, a U Type or a Boppy Type? A pregnancy pillow is such a good investment for the longterm because you will sleep much better as your belly grows and you can use it to support your back whilst feeding your baby.
Diffuse calming essential oil scents at night so that you can sleep deeply and breathe easily. No more waking up with a dry or stuffed up nose. No more stress because you are feeling wide awake in the middle of the night and know you will feel exhausted again in the morning.
