First trimester, first baby- trying to stay healthy& active but IM SO TIRED.

Im struggling ladies! I’m 6 weeks pregnant and absolutely exhausted. My boobs always hurt and I can’t fit any of my bras! I can see minor weight gain happening a little everywhere because I’ve been to lax on my cravings and sleeping ALL the time. I want to get ahead of the weight gain though- I’m vegetarian and trying to balance cravings and healthy foods. How do I gain motivation to work out and actually be consistent? I’m a professional dancer so I dance nearly everyday but that’s honestly not a work out anymore after how long I’ve been doing it. I really want to stay fit during my pregnancy but with my boobs being so sensitive to running and jumping and me being so tired I’m struggling super hard. Help!!

I would say limit your dancing if you still do. That's true, your body just want to rest and sleep. Listen to it, even if it's uncomfortable to be less active, but this will give you energy later in 2nd trimester. And drink water

Oh and also with my boobs hurting first thing I did was try a new maternity bra they are super comfy and supportive try the ones at Motherhood maternity ! And at 11 weeks I even took maternity jeans🙈 just ome simple advice would be take rest because you need it you're growing a completely new human inside of you you deserve the extra care and rest♥️

Coming from someone who has always cared about my overall health and staying in shape- The first 12 weeks of my pregnancy I literally lived off of salt and vinegar chips, Gatorade, and ginger chews. Don’t be too hard on yourself! Your body is doing the most outrageous thing it can possibly do. Rest when you’re tired, eat when you’re hungry, and don’t sweat it if your workouts aren’t as regular as they were before pregnancy! A little exercise goes a long way 💓
