What you need to know about
pregnancy's roller-coaster ride
BY SHELLEY FLANNERY

A

AND

Ah, pregnancy. What a wondrous time in a
woman's life. The bump, the glow, the first
kicks ... the nausea, the back pain, the constant
need to pee. Pregnancy symptoms range from
pleasant to painful and everything in between.
And every woman-every pregnancy-is
different. Whether this is your first baby or
your fourth, you can refer to this guide to
the symptoms you might encounter in each
trimester and what you can do to deal.

First Trimester

The first 12 weeks of pregnancy are some of
the toughest for symptoms. And if you've
decided not to share your news yet, the first
trimester can be especially difficult to navigate.

Increased urination. Even before you
start to show, you'll be high-tailing it to the
bathroom to urinate more frequently. Again,
hormones are to blame.
"As long as it's just that you need to urinate
more often and you don't have any symptoms
of an infection, such as burning, strong odor

Nausea and vomiting. The telltale
signs of every TV pregnancy, nausea and
vomiting brought on by skyrocketing hormones affect about 50 to 70 percent of real-life
pregnant women. If you can keep food down
for 20 minutes or more, then it's probably

normal. (If not, tell your doctor.) Still, you
can try some home remedies.
"The stomach in pregnancy seems to
feel best if it always has a little bit in it,"
says Anthony Scialli, MD, an OB-GYN and
spokesman for MotherToBaby, a service of
the Organization of Teratology Information
Specialists. "We recommend pregnant women
keep a couple of crackers next to their bed
and eat them as soon as they wake up."
Other tips to help with sickness, from the
American Pregnancy Association, include not
drinking fluids within 30 minutes of meals,
sniffing lemon or ginger, letting someone else
cook for you so you can avoid the smells and
staying cool.
