  4. 4. What causes it? Pregnancy is sort of like climbing a mountain or running a marathon (without having trained), while carrying a backpack that weighs a little more every day — in other words, it's hard work!

In the third trimester of pregnancy, fatigue returns as your growing fetus puts more demands on your body — and as sleep becomes more elusive. Also to blame, all that mood upheaval — riding the emotional roller coaster of pregnancy can be exhausting. It's no wonder you're pooped!

The second trimester is usually a time of renewed energy, but beware: Fatigue could return with a vengeance in the last trimester.
