First trimester pregnancy


The first trimester is a time of adapting to your growing pregnancy. You'll experience physical and emotional changes.


You might experience breast tenderness, nausea, more frequent urination, fatigue, and emotional ups and downs. Food aversions, constipation and heartburn are common.


Seek regular prenatal care. To relieve nausea, avoid having an empty stomach. Foods containing ginger might help. A healthy diet and exercise might boost energy. If your mood changes are severe, talk to your health care provider.
