If you don't feel like accepting social invitations when you're pregnant, don't. People will understand that your needs are different at this time. You might be surprised how fatigued you are, how often you need to use the restroom, or how nauseous you feel. If you do not feel well, do not demand so much of yourself. If you are having a baby, you have to be sure to exercise regularly. This reduces your chances of miscarriage and your hours in labor, and also it makes getting back to your pre-pregnant form faster after delivery.
