Manage Your Symptoms

Some women float through their first trimester with few or no symptoms. And then there's everyone else! Unfortunately, unpleasant symptoms including fatigue, nausea, breast soreness, mood swings, frequent urination, and constipation are common in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The good news is, most symptoms are completely normal and nothing to worry about.

Take heart: Most pregnant women feel more energized and less nauseated in the second trimester. Hang in there!
