Congratulations on your pregnancy!
In the first trimester of pregnancy your body also undergoes major changes. These changes often cause a variety of symptoms, including nausea, tiredness, breast tenderness and frequent urination. Every woman has a different experience, however, so while some may experience increased energy levels during this period, other mums-to-be may feel very tired and emotional.
The first trimester is the most crucial to your baby’s development. During this period, your baby’s body structure and organ systems develop.
Most mums-to-be prefer to wait for the 12th week grace period before telling anyone about their pregnancy, as most miscarriages and birth defects occur during this trimester.
Take it easy during your first trimester – start eating better, getting as much rest as you need, and start thinking about when you want to go on maternity leave and when you plan to return to work if you will, or if you want to do someting else like be a full-time mum or run a business.
