    Back pain…
    Feeling your boobs like heavy and want to explode ��
    feeling tight belly sometimes and the baby’s kicking your stomach and u feel like u have gas and u want to go to the toilet
    And ligament pain oh my no joke

  • OMG THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THIS VIDEO!
    I felt that i couldn’t relate to anyone about my feelings towards my pregnancy. Im 17 weeks with my first and this video made me feel some relief with your tips ��

  • Thanks for sharing these videos on pregnancy and parenting, Jen! I am on the fence about being pregnant (mostly fear of unknown, I think) and your perspectives are very enlightening and helpful!!!

  • So many people keep telling me how long they stayed in regular clothes once I told them I had to switch to maternity pants at week 14. Not helpful!

  • These tips are on point! Thanks for talking about these! I’m in my second trimester right now and the first tip of still having not so good days because I’m still pregnant is so true! I was hoping for the glorious energy and great feeling of the second trimester and although mentally I finally feel myself, I still have reminders that I’m not “myself” at the moment.

  • OMG i had the rash behind my knees for the last few weeks of my first trimester!! I figured heat rashes or hives but coconut oil really helped and it went away.

  • THANK YOU!!!! For this video girl, thank you for being so real and touching on things other videos have not touched on!! I appreciate your first two points so much, and again getting information other videos have not mentioned. <3

  • True��
    From 1 to 4 month I was not good at all hhhh
    After 16 weeks sometimes feel great sometimes no
    I don’t like comments on my body nether on my baby��
    True u can’t be like you want coz we are pregnant
    Glucose is not that bad at all true it tasted like orange
    Oh my god about the gender my doctor made me crazy she’s saying like 90% boy but I’ll confirm next month and I’m now on 5th month and i don’t know. And like I was sure that’s girl��…why they’re doing this.. this is our right to know ��

  • You were pregnant ahead of me with my first. And I’m pregnant right now with my second and you’re ahead of me by a few weeks! Thanks for all your preggy updates!

  • Thanks for being so honest about gender reveal. I feel exactly the same way and felt so so bad about it I also needed a moment. ��

  • OMG! I got a random rash that started behind my knees around 9-10 weeks! No one knew what it was, and I haven’t heard anyone else have the same thing!

  • I’m 16 weeks pregnant and i feel my belly popping out and my husbands side always tells me i just look fat and i was wasn’t fat before so it does make me sad/uncomfortable �� like i know I’m pregnant not fat lol

  • Wow yes thank you for your full frontal authenticity. You’ve got me giggling. Definitely feeling the hormonal wild mood swings and emotional waves. But again, thank you for all of this!

  • Aria is the most adorable baby ever… Her little gestures are so cute…�������������������� and of course you look gorgeous as always… Even though I’m not married but I still love to watch on your pregnancy videos������

  • Hey Girly! I’m hoping to make a second trimester video and loved your video and have me such great inspo! I’m currently 26 weeks ❤️

  • Just hit my second trimester, nausea is clearing up thankfully but I’m still exsauhsted! Heart burn is annoying and I have to pee even more

  • Lol Omgsh you’re gold! I just hit 18 weeks and I’m at the “everything is overwhelming” stage and I’ve never felt more peace knowing I’m not the only crazy, thanks!
