Pregnancy is a long process but it doesn’t have to be a scary one. In this video, Dr. Isabel Blumberg explains what you can expect when you are first pregnant. The first trimester is the first 14 weeks of pregnancy and the time when your baby will start to form organs in their body. Pregnancy symptoms include exhaustion, cramping, skin breakouts and tender breasts. 75% of women will experience nausea and vomiting, or morning sickness, during their first trimester. Follow Dr. Blumberg’s tips to lower your stress levels and feel more like your regular self.
