Hello,

This is a difficult question to answer specifically and personalized for your individual case. These questions are best answered by your health care provider and answers can vary quite a bit depending on your usual state of health and any medical problems that you may have.

As you are aware, you are very early in your pregnancy and this can be a challenging (and exciting time) if you are already feeling fatigued and if you may be having any nausea (or vomiting) associated with your pregnancy.

Many pregnant individuals do not change there level of activity until later in their pregnancy but as I noted above, you should discuss your specific concerns with your health care provider.
