jessxliii:  I would notify your manager if you haven’t already and they should be open to a discussion about what you can and can’t do. Maybe they can shorten your hours slightly, or make sure you get a break, or change the type of activities you undertake. It will be in their best interest to help you so should be open to this discussion. Best of luck!

Now is the time to let your body rest when it needs to.  The smallest things that used to be so simple can seem like climing mount everest these days! Definitely have a chat with your managers about reducing some work to accomodate your pregnancy.

I have no advice, but wanted to stop by and say that you’re not alone! I’m 14 weeks and I’m exhausted all the time, though I do have slightly more energy than I did the last two months, which is great. I work a desk job, thank God, and spend most of my weekends on the couch watching tv. I’m hoping that the second trimester energy boost kicks in soon!

Yes I was exhausted from really early on. I also suffered from morning sickness too. Work were really good and whilst I didn’t have to really change my duties  (I work in a school) there were certain things that did affect me so I modified/stopped doing them but they weren’t essential to my role – like dancing in the playground!

 

id definitely talk to your work. In the UK they have to work with you to ensure your safety and well being.
