    Dear Kirthi,

    Congratulations and Welcome to this site.
    1. It is okay not have the nausea or morning sickness during your first trimester. ( i guess you are one of the lucky ones, I also did not suffer from this for both my pregnancies).
    2. Yes feeling tired in the mornings is one of the symptoms. Your body is going through a lot of hormonal changes now. There is no way of overcoming it other than to take it easy and get plenty of rest.
    3. Regarding food, Pregnancy is not a disease to avoid any food. At the same time do not overindulge with the idea of " eating for two". Everything in moderation is the key. In general , get plenty of fiber and ofcourse vital nutrients by having lots of fruits and veggies. Keep an eye on the amount of carbs you have ( white bread, white rice, pasta etc..) . Cut down on oily and fried food. Okay to have once in a way. So also cut down on pickles and salty items. I know there are myths like avoiding papaya and pineapple etc... , but these are just myths. Ripe papaya is good source of vitamins so also pineapple.
    4. Walking is the best form of excercise , all through your pregnancy. I know there are pregnancy yoga videos and other pregnant work out videos that are available , but walking is the most effective of all. So continue to walk at a comfortable pace right up till the end.
    5. Please do read the " what to expect when you are expecting book" .

    lets us know if you have any other questions.

    Best of luck
    Vandhana

    Dear Kirthi

    There are no standard rules for asking questions to an OB/GYN.Whenever you have a doubt regarding something,just note it down.When you visit your GYN,you can ask him/her those questions.Also,when you have any doubts regarding anything,you can ask your parents first since they will be able to advise you best.Afterall,they have brought us to this earth and they will know a lot of things which will be unknown to us.Ofcourse,you can post it here too and one of us will surely reply.

    Try and avoid carbonated drinks like coke,Pepsi and sodas.Eat a lot of sprouts and fruits.Most important--stay cool and relaxed all the time.Don't get tensed up regarding the pregnancy.Like Vandhana said-Pregnancy is not a disease.My doctor told me the same thing when during my pregnancy I had Hypertension and gestational diabetes and was advised bed-rest from the 7th mnth by my previous doctor.My doctor said-'You are pregnant,you are not sick.For ages,women have been bearing children and you are not the first one to bear a child'

    That is exactly it.When you realise that there are many women out there who have gone through all types of pregnancies,it becomes easier for you to relax and stay cool.:cool2:

    If you need help uploading them, please PM me.

    Thanks,

    Dear gals,

    I finally feel good after couple of weeks. I was having severe cold and cough. I feel really better today. I did not take any medicine albeit steam treament with vicks.

    Hopefully i stay the same. It was really tough having morning sickness coupled with cold and cough during weekdays. Atleast during the weekends i could get some rest.

    I bought the book " What to expect when expecting.." Very good book.

    If any of you from orange county would like to read the book let me know. I can share it with you. Please feel free.

    Also my health insurance company gifted me a book " Pregnancy week by week". Let me know if any of you would like to browse through the book.

    Regards,
    Kriga

    Good to hear Kirga.
    Dont' forget to make a list about ur discomforts and make sure that u ask ur OB/GYN about those.
    Try to eat lot of healthy food, even when u feel like eating junk.
    Most of all ask ur husband to read that book so that he will be aware of what u r going through mentally n physical.

    Take good care of ur health.

    Dear gals,

    I was not sure if cocoa intake is safe during pregnancy. I drink milk+Nesquick in the mornings. Nesquick does have cocoa in it.

    Please let me know.


    thanks,
    Krithi
