Thanks for the query.
Some amount of fatigue is common in pregnancy.
But as you are having severe problem better to look into following things:
-In case of hyperemesis gravidarum extreme fatigue etc. are possible. So if you are having excessive vomitings etc. take sufficient fluid replacement.
-Check for your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
-Undergo thyroid profile once to rule out any abnormal values.
With this primary workup, possibly the cause for your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care.
