Hi first of all yes it does! i suffer from sickness and it isvery tiring. best thing to do is rest as much as you can. keep hydrated and it gets better. i ended up with almost 3 months off work due to sickness and illness. if you do too much it can make it worse. talk to your boss, it maybe that when you go back they could look at been more flexible with your hours so you can rest more. i have been known to come home and be in bed within 10 mins as i became so exhausted.

hope you get better soon. remeber your health and the babys health is the most important thing right now
