It is extremely tough, I was the same with my first. The only thing you can do if you have to or choose to remain in that job is rest whenever you get the chance.
Hopefully in a few more weeks it will ease off as often happens and you will manage like you did before.
Hope you start feeling better soon
The other thing I did was squeeze lemon into hot water, even if I just sniffed at it that seemed to get me through.
It gets better...
That first trimester is a toughy, but usually by 12 or 13 weeks your body will settle and hopefully you will become less nauseous and tired.
I am almost 17 weeks now and am feeling great (apart from a slight cold)and I would say 95% better than how I felt in my first 11 weeks.
Is there any option that you can reduce your work hours until you start to feel a little better?
Thats the only way I would cope next time as during my pregancy I had to give up work for the 1st 4months as my doctor didn't tell me about Maxolon. Won't need to next time though.
I really feel for you, I was the same, I'm 26 and this is my first baby, I had no idea how sick I would feel and by 8wks had forgotten what it was like to have energy and feel healthy!
But it has nearly all gone now.
The other day I got home from work and put on some music and had a dance around and then thought... Hang on.. I feel good and I haven't danced since before I was pregnant cause I would normally just get home put on trackies and lay on the lounge feeling like crap..
Work was really hard to deal with, I ended up telling everyone that I was pregnant and they were really understanding. That was at about 7wks and made life at work slightly easier.
Good luck getting through it, it will get better smile
But I am nearly 37 weeks with my second baby and I so tired and also have morning sickness with this one as well and looking after a toddler as well and working full time I was always tired even when I went to bed early so I made so I had some vitimins that you can take while pregnant and I found that help me out and when I was at work I use to found a quiet area and just close my eyes for while and relax so I could get though the day.
But I have just finish work now I am so glad I did cause I couldnt do what I did with my daughter and I work right up til I had her but this one I was stuggling big time and I dont miss work one little bit.

I am in the same boat as you.
I hope you are feeling better now that your pregnancy is a bit further along.
I know at 5-7 weeks i was feeling absolutely terrible!.... but it has calmed off a bit but the tiredness is a killer. All i seem to do is work, sleep. I am in bed at 6.30pm and 8.30 is a later one! I feel really terrible because my hubby is doing so much work around the house and I feel a bit useless!
Fingers crossed this tiredness fades, my mum tells me I will be bursting with energy at 14weeks... I sure hope I am because atm it feels like it is never going to end!
Good luck with your prenancy and work!
Yea it is hard but ill get easier once the morning sickness passes. You should how ever let your boss know that your pregnant so that he/she is aware of it and allows you more time to rest as over working yourself can in some cases be harmful for bubs. I would also suggest having a blood test done to check that your iron levels arent low as this could be the reason for your tiredness.
