initially pregnancy does make you feel very sleepy, but it reduces after the first trimester. you have probably made it a habit by sleeping, now at the same time everyday you will be sleepy... try to consciously reduce it... back pain will get worse as pregnancy advances, for that, atleast every hour, you must get up and walk... don't worry, everything will be fine, take care dear...

Your body is doing a lot of work. It's ok if you feel sleepy or tired. Take a week off from work & keep munching on nutritious foods - fruits, dry fruits every 2-3 hours. Take it easy till you feel better. Request for a work from home option if possible.

absolutely normal.
i used to almost pass out in early weeks. make sure you are eating well and taking vitamins etc as doc has prescribed. take good amount of fluids through tbe day.
