Pregnancy feelings and relationships - hormones cause tiredness in pregnancy

Pregnancy feelings and relationships: From the minute you know you are pregnant, your feelings change: feelings about yourself, about the baby and about your future. Your relationships change: with your partner, other children and also with your parents and friends. Coping with these changes is not always easy.
It is better to know about some of the worries that may come up in pregnancy and suggestions on how to handle them. What is a problem for one person may not be a problem for you, and what is helpful advice for some people may not be right for you. So take from these advices what you find useful.
Pregnancy ups and downs   
When you are pregnant it can sometimes seem as though you have to be happy all of the time. You may find that people expect you to look forward to the baby, be excited and to ‘bloom’ all the time. You too may think that this is the way you ought to feel.
In fact, you are likely to have ups and downs, just like any other nine months in your life.
Tiredness and hormonal changes in pregnancy  
Hormonal changes taking place in your body can make you feel tired, nauseous, emotional and upset – particularly in the first three months. You may find that you cry more easily, sometimes for no reason, and lose your temper more. Being tired and run down can make you feel low. Try to look after your physical health and get plenty of sleep and take care of your health in pregnancy.
Help and support
If you are feeling very anxious – for whatever reason – talk to your midwife or doctor as soon as possible.
