Pregnancy Stuff that Drives You Nuts (CA)

Your belly’s growing—and maybe your list of pregnancy gripes is, too. Shrink those annoyances down to size with these proven fixes.

Ack! Nausea!

"I had an incredibly keen sense of smell and it made me constantly nauseous," says mom of one Annie Jenkins of San Antonio, Texas. "Sucking on lollipops kept the queasiness at bay. I had a stash in my purse and they helped tremendously, even if I did feel like I was 5 years old."

Ack! Back issues!

About 70 percent of women have lower back pain during pregnancy. Try soaking in a warm bath, doing gentle stretches, taking a yoga class (check with your doctor first), or treating yourself to a prenatal massage.

Ack! The comments!

"I was amazed that people commented on my appearance," says Lynn Whitlock, a mom of three from Minneapolis, Minnesota. "Someone actually said she could tell I was having a boy because my backside looked so big! I just had to remind them—and myself from time to time—that being pregnant is not being ‘fat.’"

Ack! Swollen feet!

Bloated feet and stilettos don’t mix, but that doesn’t mean you can’t kick up your heels. Pick up a pair of low wedges; they provide more support (and comfort) than a spike.

Ack! Getting babied!

"People at work made such a fuss over me, even holding meetings in my office so I wouldn’t have to walk three feet to the conference room," recalls Doreen Murphy, a mom of one in Chapman, Kansas. "I know they meant well, but I hated feeling so helpless. Finally, I just said my doctor wanted me to get up and walk around. No one could argue with that!"
