Fatigue is common.: Early pregnancy is often accompanied by either fatigue or nausea and vomiting. Usually women feel better after week 12. If you continue to be very tired, make sure you're not anemic, and tell your doctor so he can check your thyroid levels along with your regular labs. It's harder with the second pregnancy because you have a small child to take care of along with your pregnancy fatigue.

Proof of cell: Phone link not yet in, microwaves are relatively safe, but radiation is in the electromagnetic spectrum and is a clear cause, and u-v light is part of the spectrum causing skin cancers. All seem to demonstrate direct links to dose and time of exposure. X-rays seem to have no threshold, but very low doses are very unliklely to lead to individual harm, but to a population, a small number will.
