My Pregnant Body - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 5 - Hormones and Headaches

If you took a home pregnancy test recently, the positive result was due to the presence of the hormone hCG (human chronic gondatrophin) in your urine. It is one of the hormones responsible for a number of pregnancy symptoms you may have started experiencing, including nausea, vomiting, fatigue and breast tenderness.

If you are feeling tired and sluggish even after a full night's sleep try a little exercise. It may sound strange, but regular exercise can actually help increase your energy level and will help you sleep more soundly. But don't feel bad about giving in to your fatigue and indulging in naps and early bed-times whenever possible. You're going through a lot of internal changes right now, both emotional and physical, and your body is using all its extra energy to care for that new life inside you.
