Pregnancy Worries To Relax About

Concerned about the new things happening to your body? Read these reassurances so you can better enjoy pregnancy, from point A to point Baby.

That first-trimester fatigue? It's followed by a second-trimester glow.
The increased blood flow that happens during the second trimester gives you a flattering just-got-off-the-elliptical flush—even if you’ve just been vegging on the couch.

That morning sickness? Not everyone gets it.
Estimates vary widely on the percentage of women who have to deal with a sour stomach, but doctors say they have plenty of pregnant patients who never have nausea.

That bowling ball formerly known as your belly? You'll embrace it.
"At the start of my pregnancy, I was a little worried about how big I'd look—I wasn't slim to start with," says Ilene Epstein, a mom of one in New York City. "But as the months passed, my size didn't matter. I was fascinated by this baby growing inside me, thrilled by her kicks and darn proud of my bump!"

Those whirlwind hormones? They can work to your benefit.
OK, so you might get a little moody at times, but pregnancy hormones often make hair fuller and even shinier.

That weight you gained? You’ll shed it.
"Neither me nor my joints were prepared for the sudden weight gain during pregnancy," says Ellie Agah, a mom of one in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. "I dealt by going swimming. Not only was the feeling of weightlessness wonderful, but it also gave me plenty of energy and kept me in shape. I stuck with it after I had the baby, and the weight came off!"

That nesting instinct? It won't drive you crazy.
"I never really believed in that nesting instinct until it happened to me," says Sara Norris, a mom of three in Scituate, Massachusetts. "Out of nowhere in my third trimester, I had this sudden urge to clean closets and line everything up in the kitchen cabinets. This has not been a bad thing; it’s really helpful to keep stuff in order once you have kids. Otherwise, you’ll spend your life looking for things you’ve lost, including your mind!"
