In brief: Yes

During the first trimester, women may feel extremely fatigued as they are experiencing hormonal changes related to the pregnancy.
During the second trimester, most women have increase in energy and during the third trimester, fatigue may return as women sleep less because your body will experience the most change during this time. Always check with your doctor for anemia or other conditions.

In brief: Yes

Most women feel very tired in the first trimester. Usually energy returns until later in pregnancy, when it can be very difficult to get adequate sleep.
