My wife is pregnant (3 to 5 weeks) and she has no energy. She is taking Pre-Natal vitamins and is eating when she is hungry. any ideas what might be causing her lack of energy. This is her first pregnancy and she is 43 years old.

If you read anything about being pregnant a lack of energy is going to be one of the first things you find. It is most apparent in the first and third trimester. Her body is in overdrive introducing new hormones and getting ready to support another life for the next 9 months. It is very common for her to feel tired and have no energy. tell her to try to go on a walk or do something that involves exercise it is a great energy booster! Congrats BTW

I completely agree with Miss Ashley. I'm about 5 weeks along and all I want to do is take a nap when I get home from work. I feel so much better if I eat a light snack and take the dog for a walk. I get more lethargic when I try to regain energy by resting.
