Q&A: Is it normal to be completely exhausted during pregnancy?
I am 8 weeks pregnant and completely exhausted. I know it is normal to be tired during pregnancy, but this goes beyond tired. I'm usually very active and I don't even have the energy to take the dog for a walk without being exhausted afterwards. I could run three miles before I got pregnant. Is this normal or should I check with my doctor? What can cause this type of exhaustion?
Check with your doctor. Hypothyroidism, anemia, depression, and other causes of fatigue need to be considered.
