    Yessss, to all of it. I felt terrible in the first trimester too šŸ™ I couldn't agree more about sleeping when you need to. I get off of work everyday at 3:30 and I used to beeline out the door. My goal was always to be on the couch, snack eaten and falling asleep by 4. I'd nap until my husband got home between 5:30 and 6. He usually brought dinner or made it and then sometimes I'd go right back to sleep. Ahh, I don't miss the first trimester at all and yay for being done with it. I've had so much fun in the second!

    The forums at Baby Center are enough to scare any woman away from pregnancy. I didn't have morning sickness, but the bad grammar and acronyms made me nauseous.

    YES. My first trimester was so much better when I finally called the dr after a week of not being able to eat anything. They told me something to take over the counter, and while I still felt awful, I was at least consuming food and sleeping again. Totally worth the five minute phone call.

    Now being in the third trimester during the middle of summer, it would have been great to know about heat rash! I smell like baby powder and cocoa butter on the daily.

    The first trimester, which lead into 6.5 months of throw up for me, was the worst!! I had to get meds just to keep food down, it was bad! All your tips are spot on. I just now, 8 week postpartum, can now start to enjoy my favorite foods again bc I thought trying them while pregnant would be amazing, nope lol.

    Hoping the second trimester goes better (it usually does, right? says the not married, not pregnant girl)

    All good tips! My first trimester was very similar, I was so sick every day and my nausea medication was heaven sent. Women that aren't that sick don't understand and it can be hard because you feel so GUILTY for doing nothing but being parked on the couch feeling like a zombie. I'm so glad that you are feeling better. Can't wait to find out what you're having!

    If chicken makes a hairy baby then I'm in trouble. I've been eating so much chicken!

    Someone wrote that eating chicken can make your baby hairy? Google is so strange sometimes. So sad you can't eat Mexican food right now! So glad you're feeling better though! šŸ™‚

    YES. This is so good. The first trimester was pretty much the worst thing that ever happened to me. Especially going to the doctor. I was so sick I had to bypass the doctor and go straight to the hospital. Those days were just so hard.

    Google is the pregnant woman's mortal enemy. I almost made my husband put parental controls on my phone so I would stop googling things. Plus, the internet is so full of things you neeeeeeed or you won't survive pregnancy. It gets even worse after you have the baby. I didn't buy a $200 bouncer that's iphone-powered and my kid is just fine, thank you.

    Glad you're feeling better!!

    Great post! When my coworker was pregnant another person that we worked with was like, "You always hear women rave about being pregnant, but I always wondered if they remembered what it was like to be pregnant!" I think there is some sugar-coating that goes on because pregnancy is such a "beautiful" and "magical" thing. I love that your post was real and included some practical advice. šŸ™‚
