Is being tired all the time normal?

I am almost ten weeks (Friday). I found out I was pregnant at excatly 6 weeks. I was a tired person even before I got pregnant, but now from about five weeks to now I am so tired I got energy some days but most days I want to sleep in and go to bed early. Is this normal to be this tired? I know that it comes with being pregnant, but is it supposed to be this bad?

I'm 7 weeks and all I do is sleep! My body hurts from sleeping too much, but I can't even make myself stay up to watch a movie! It does get better though! You will eventually not be so tired!

Yes, unfortunately. It should get better in the second trimester. I finally got more energy around 16-17 weeks. I can finally stay up past 8/9 o'clock! Good luck.

Oh yeah! My mom figured out I was pregnant when I suddenly started falling asleep on the couch every time I was at my parents' house!

just try to imagine that all your energy is going into constructing a beautiful healthy baby. then consider how exhausting that must be on your body. so don't feel bad for catching some extra z's.
i used to have a two hour nap every afternoon. ; ) take advantage of the sleep you can get now, in a few months you'll be missing these days.
