I had to cut fibrous foods entirely during first trimester because my pains were so bad! That’s actually how I found out I was pregnant. I got anise seeds and just chewed on a few when I was bloated. Super helpful!

Same for me, goes away on it's own. I felt better about myself at 16 weeks (with twins) then I did at 8. Fine with a bump, but fluff isn't cute :)

It feels like everyone has gotten so down on advertising. You can still make great work for great brands at great agencies. You can still do things you’re proud of. And fill your portfolios with beautiful things. And have great impact. And collect shiny awards and enjoy great after parties after it. And see your commercials on TV during the Super Bowl. It’s still a great way to make a living if done right. And craft services is still tasty. You just have to make the right career moves.

Additional Posts in We're Pregnant!

Hello Everyone - My wife and I are expecting our first. I've looked through a lot of posts here and revies online. Uppababy Vista gets pretty favorable reviews and my wife and I both liked it when we check it at a store this past weekend. A bit big for traveling, so thinking about getting the Minu as well. Anyone who has had firsthand experience with the Vista and Minu pairing, would love to hear your feedback and if you'd go with something different?

I’m 15 weeks this week and we just told some friends of ours the exciting news… except one of them texted me after the fact to say “I did notice that you were getting ‘bigger,’ but I just chalked it up to the stress of your new manager role. Glad to hear it’s bc you’re pregnant!”

Feeling extremely sad... I just went from thinking I potentially had one baby, to two babies to possibly none.

Does anyone else have similar stories?
