to give in to the tiredness?

Hi all. I'm 6.5 weeks pg and am feeling so tired and generally groggy. I have been having long sleeps at night but then having an hour and half nap during the day. From those of you in the know - should I try to soldier through and not give in to napping or just listen to my body?

I'm on holiday now which is why I can indulge in afternoon naps, but I also usually sleep more when on hols so not sure how much of it is due to being pg or me just being lazy!

Listen to your body, I had regular naps during the day, that was catching up on the multiple pee trips at night

Hi cloudless. I'm 11+3 and still napping all the time. I work full time and so will usually grab a nap as soon as I get in as I'm shattered. Weekends is fair game for catching all the naps I can!

You're growing a human! Of course that is hard work. Nap away!

Good Lord yes. Sleep as much as you can. Enjoy the naps whilst you can!!

Sleep, sleep, sleep! Your body is telling you that you need it.

The fatigue should go away by the end of the first trimester (until late in the third when you'll be exhausted but unable to get comfy enough to sleep anyway).

Hi cloudless - yes, sleeeeep!! I'm 10+3, work full-time and sleep every other chance I get! (Obvs I don't have any DCs!) I've lost discovered a don't get morning sickness when you sleep, hurrah!

Nap whenever you can!! Don't feel bad at all. I napped when DD did when I needed it in the first trimester, and occasionally now I'll still do it in the second trimester. Enjoy your naps!

It is a very long time since early I was pregnant but I remember that in the early stages I fell asleep at my desk (the boss shushed my colleagues) and on one occasion dozed off in the car at a red traffic light to be woken by a policeman. In the first weeks the baby's organs are being formed and this is exhausting for your body. Just sleep when and where you can.
