Because your preegggooo :] It happens like that for most people! I started feeling tired before I even realized I was pregnant, then I found out and it all made sense! Haha I got my energy back after the morning sickness dissapeared around the fourth month. Then the last two months when I was huge, I needed a lot more rest again. Just drink a lot of water and rest as much as you can, it's the best thing you can do!

Haha, because of exactly that. You are 3 months pregnant. Make sure you're taking your vitamins and get all the rest you can =]

Yep, it's going to happen for pretty well all the pregnancy. 'They' say you get your energy back for the 2nd trimester, I dunno, didn't happen to me.
Make sure you are taking vitamins (specifically for pregnancy) cuz bubs is taking all of your nutrients and leaving very little behind for your body to use. Your body is creating a little person, it takes alot of energy to do what it's doing and nothing will be left for you. My dr found out I had an iron deficiancy at my 28wk bloodtest, once I upped my iron intake a bit it helped alot too.

It's completely normal, just your hormones affecting your body. The books say that in the second trimester you will get this energy boost but I have never had it - in either of my pregnancies. I start feeling exhausted around 6 weeks and remain so until the end of the pregnancy. Just sleep when you can :-)
