When we found out we were expecting, I was literally only 3-4 weeks. It was so early that I honestly didn’t have any symptoms – good or bad. That all changed around Week 6 (and thankfully subsided early around Week 12).
When pregnant with Charlotte, I was SO sick for the first 20 weeks. I didn’t drink enough water. I was the worst about remembering my prenatal vitamins. And the bags under my eyes looked horrifying. My husband had also just deployed to Syria, I had just received a big promotion at work, and I was working on my MBA, so I blamed all of these things on stress.
Now that I’m pregnant with Baby #2 and my husband is around to hear me whine about every little ache and pain, I’m paying much closer attention to all the things. 😉
4 things that got me through the 1st Trimester with Baby #2
Between the nausea, loss of appetite and cravings for something sweet, these prenatal gummies have been my “go to” again this pregnancy. I get mine on Amazon, but you can also request your OB give you a prescription for gummy prenatal vitamins as well!
I’m doing all I can to stay hydrated better with this pregnancy. This cup is super affordable, comes in tons of colors, has a convenient handle, keeps your drink cold all day, and is obnoxiously large (although it does come in several sizes!). I know I’ll be using this guy throughout the rest of my pregnancy too!
These little candies are hit or miss from what I hear. However, if you have morning sickness I would recommend giving them a try! I used these several times and they did the trick for me, all but once.
While most days I could care less what I looked like, there were also many that I needed to feel like I wasn’t dying. Between the extreme fatigue and morning sickness I was looking ROUGH. This Tula Rose Glow & Get It eye balm is SO GOOD. It brightens up your under eyes and makes you look alive.
I was using this prior to being pregnant as well. It’s the perfect addition to any beauty routine. You can wear it with or without makeup AND over or under your makeup.
