Im pregnant with my first baby, currently 7 weeks 2 days. Ive not really experienced any symptoms yet other than extreme tiredness thats literally taken over my whole body. I can barely get myself out of bed in the mornings!
Is this a normal feeling, and is there anything I can do to feel more energised??!

This is entirely normal, your body is working really hard right now
I am exactly the same, 9 weeks pregnant tomorrow and I feel like I have no energy at all even after a full night's sleep. I went out for a couple of hours today and felt drained when I got home.
Getting out of bed has been a mission for me too, I have been off work the past few weeks with severe sickness so that hasn't helped matters so luckily I have been able to stay in bed later.

Exhaustion is really common. You'd think there was something wrong with you if you didn't know you were pregnant!! It really is extreme and debillitating. It passes eventually and all you can do in the mean time is listen to your body and rest when you can. I was in bed by 7.30 quite a few nights and slept til my alarm went off next morning and still felt exhausted!! There's nothing you can do to feel more energised, just try and chillax
