One comment I hear frequently is, "I'm exhausted! Will I ever feel normal again?" Let me assure you the fatigue you feel at the beginning of your pregnancy will ease, and you will no doubt feel much better soon. Fatigue is a normal part of pregnancy â€” you're not experiencing anything abnormal.
Fatigue may continue during your pregnancy, but for most women, it's worst early in pregnancy; then it gets better. Eating right, taking your prenatal vitamins and getting plenty of rest helps.
You may also feel concern about working while you're pregnant. In the past, women were told they couldn't work, but that's changed. With so many women working outside the home, we've been able to study how this activity affects pregnancy. Studies show that working under normal circumstances does not harm the developing baby, as long as you don't have a job that causes you to stand for exceptionally long periods of time or that requires you to lift or carry heavy objects.
