You may also be feeling completely exhausted because of all the hormonal changes in your body. You may also feel faint at times and you may completely go off tea and coffee. As your basal metabolic rate (BMR) increases, you may hunger for more calories and protein. Or you may find nausea is putting you eating off certain foods altogether. You will still not be showing at all yet, your clothes might be a bit tight by the evening, but you'll be back to normal by the morning.
