The key word is rest. Turn in earlier at night, take naps whenever possible, and take breaks often during the day--fix yourself a cool drink of water or juice, put your feet up. Cut out unnecessary activities for now- don't try to be a superwoman who's rushing to parties, taking piano lessons, and refurbishing the house. Cut yourself and your body some slack. But do exercise when you feel up to it--a brisk walk or a prenatal yoga session will give you an energy boost. And don't forget to include plenty of protein, fruits, and vegetables in your diet. Your body needs the fuel.
