2 days ago
The first 12 weeks of your pregnancy will probably be the biggest adjustment period as you get used to the idea of being pregnant, make some lifestyle changes, and deal with all of the physical and emotional changes that are going on. The first trimester is thought of as the most sensitive time during your pregnancy because this is when all of your baby’s organs and structures are being built. You may not see a whole lot going on outside during the first trimester but you will definitely be able to tell there is a whole lot going on internally, and emotionally. Get an overview of everything you can expect during the first trimester of your pregnancy including; common symptoms like morning sickness, changes in hormones, your baby’s development, and how you can get some relief from some of the not so fun side effects of being pregnant.

I love Vanessa's focus on both evidence based medicine and practical real-world-mom tips. I like knowing what to discuss with my doctor and husband. She's the friend we all need, who's helpful but not pushy! Thank you!
