Discomfort during pregnancy

Fatigue

Feelings of intense fatigue are very common during the first trimester of pregnancy. It is caused mainly by the increase in progesterone, a hormone that has a sedative effect. It will disappear in the second trimester, but return in the third trimester due to the weight of the baby and the uterus.

Take care of yourself and get as much rest as possible: sleep at least eight hours and take naps whenever you can. Many companies allow their pregnant employees to reduce or modify their work hours beginning with the second trimester: check your workplace agreements to find out what your rights are!
