BTDT mommies let's give the first time moms a bit of advice. My advice is to start keeping that skin moisturized now, yes most of the time it is set in our cards as to wether we will end up with stretch marks. There really is no magic potion that will prevent them either , but it is important to keep your skin quenched. Once that belly starts growing you'll understand why, itchy itchy which helps them come along. I love Bio oil, can be a bit costly for the small amount you get, but it works.

Great advice on the keeping the skin moisturized, I wish I would have done that with my first.

My advice would be enjoy being pregnant, rest and let hubby/so other take care of you, you deserve it your are making a miracle in there.

Water, water, water. All of the time. I know everyone seems to KNOW this, but it's so hard to remember for some! I personally HATE water, but it makes such a big difference during pregnancy! I found by drinking it room temp, I was able to drink more, and more frequently.

Angie, I agree. Room temp was much more managable to get down!

I forgot to add if you do not want those cute clothes ruined put them away! Shoes to I had stretched some of my favorite shirts and shoes last pregnancy, now I can't wear them anymore. Once you hit 12 weeks or maybe even sooner for some don't wear it lol!

I would say start getting in the habit of eating snacks and smaller meals multiple times per day. It helps fend off nausea at the beginning and makes for more stable weight gain later on. Helped me anyway. LOL

Drink lots of water.

Eat lots of protein (it helps fend off the queasiness too). If you start feeling queasy eat meat, or peanut butter. Or carry a protein bar in your purse.

Keep exercising regularly. I know, it's hard and you'll be tired, but maybe if we band together we can encourage each other?
