Pregnant women may normally feel
tired in their first three months of pregnancy, while their
body is busily transforming a single cell into a miniature
baby; and in the last three months, when your baby is very
active and growing more rapidly. The problem is however much
worse if your routine is inflexible because of employment.
So try to relax as much as possible during the middle three
months, which tend to be easier.
- Do not exert
yourself and cut down non-essential chores.
- Take naps
at home and at work whenever you get the opportunity.
- If you don't
need to stand then sit. If you don't need to sit then lie
down. Think of your health and well-being first.
- Ask for help.
Tell family and friends how tired you are. It is not necessary
that you have to do the entire house work or office work.
Feel free to ask for some assistance.
- If you have
to put on a good front at work, don't try to be a superwoman
at home too.
