Fatigue is an early pregnancy symptom experienced by nearly all women in their first trimester. It can begin weeks after conception and it typically gets better during the second trimester and third trimester.
Pregnancy tips on what you can do to combat fatigue:

Don't be afraid to ask for help. Get a family member or a friend to give you a hand, this might be picking up some groceries from work and the little things around the house.
Sleep more. Sleeping early and getting an hour extra of sleep always helps. You'll feel more energetic in the morning and keeps you more alert during the day. For more info on how to sleep better during pregnancy, visit here.
Pregnancy Nutrition. This is important as it will act as fuel throughout your day. Opt for snacks rather than heavy meals to keep you going. Caffeine and sugar may give you a quick fix but don't be fooled as you will feel more tired than ever.
Pregnancy Workouts. I know the day schedule can be busy already but investing 30 mins to an hour of exercise can help re-energise the body and soul. The benefits of these pregnancy exercises can also help with birth and labour.
