A hardworking body! This is what you can expect when you are pregnant. The increased workload of your body may make you weary and tired during pregnancy. Pregnancy is not that much a beautiful experience for those who are facing severe tiredness, due to one or more reasons. Morning sickness, increased metabolism, emotional disturbances, household chores, professional strain or inappropriate diet schedule can be considered as culprits for this annoying condition.

If you feel that you are one among those women who feel extremely tired during pregnancy, this is for you. Here are some tips that will help you get relief from your fatigue.



Rest is very essential to keep your body healthy during pregnancy. Take some time to relax your mind and body. You can do anything that does not demand physical exertion during this time like reading, listening to music or watching television. Cut down your to-do list and give priority to getting time to lighten up.


Balanced diet

Eating healthy is very important during pregnancy. You have to take enough food to satisfy not only the needs of your body, but also that of your unborn baby. Nutritious foods that meet your body's demand will help you get relief from being tired during pregnancy.


Stray hydrated

Another reason for tiredness that is commonly overlooked by pregnant women is not drinking enough water. Water is essential to keep your body hydrated. Dehydration will make you more drained and tired during pregnancy. Make sure that you drink at least eight glasses or more of water daily to help cope with your pregnancy.


Get adequate sleep

Disturbed sleep is a common experience of pregnant women. This is mainly due to the changes in the pregnancy hormones. Getting enough sleep is one of the best ways for coping with fatigue during pregnancy. Take daytime naps whenever possible to compensate your night sleep loss.



Don't think that you are tired and doing exercise will make you more exhausted. Performing mild exercises is considered as one of the effective ways for beating your fatigue. A slow walk is considered as the best exercise for pregnant women.


Seek medical advice

Getting tired during pregnancy is normal. But, at the same time, there are many other medical conditions that may have fatigue as a general symptom. So, it is recommended to seek medical advice to make sure that your fatigue is not due to any other medical reasons that are not related to pregnancy.
