During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes and while each pregnancy is unique, there are some common pregnancy symptoms that many mothers-to-be experience.
We’ve created a list of some of the most common pregnancy symptoms along with how you can manage them while being safe for you and your baby.
Nausea & morning sickness
This is probably the most well-known symptom associated with being pregnant. Feeling nauseous or throwing up is likely linked to the hormonal changes happening in your body.
A few ways to deal with this common pregnancy symptom are:
- Eating ginger
- Having smaller meals or eating less often
- Taking vitamin B6
- Using acupuncture wristbands
Tiredness & fatigue
Growing an entire human being can be draining on your body, leading to you feeling exhausted. Be sure to prioritize rest by taking short naps can help with sleepiness during the day and aiming to get 8+ hours of sleep at night.
Making sure you stay hydrated, eating nutritious foods and getting more frequent, low intensity exercise can help to minimize the feeling of fatigue.
