Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

answers (7)

This is my first child and I am having a girl, in my first trimester I felt nauseous all the time, I can count on one hand how many times I threw up during my first trimester (which was 4). I slept pretty regular, I was however very tired during the day and had littel energy during the weekend to do anything besides sleep. Didn't really have any cravings. Hope this helps
The exact same. Every pregnancy is different, it doesn't matter if you are having a boy or girl, those are all just old wives' tales!
With my girls I have always had A LOT more morning sickness than with my boy. With my boy I was more tired than with my girls. Each pregnancy is different though so it is really hard to say how it would be for you because each mom is as different as each pregnancy is.
Everyone is different.  I am having a girl and my experience was the opposite of what I had been told.  I had no cravings, had nausea when I got hungry but didn't vomit not one single time and had no acne.  I woke at leat 3-5 times at night for restroom runs so sleeping was very difficult.  I found all processed foods to be repulsive and any sugar that wasn't in fruit was not edible.  Everything tasted 50 times sweeter.  I did need to take power naps during the day to recharge toward the end of my first trimester.  I could barely keep my eyes open.  Thank goodness for working from home! 
I was opposite to the old wives tales in my pregnancies. I was so much sicker with my son than my daughter.  I don't remember the tiredness level being different but I am sure it was probably worse with my daughter because of stress going on at the time.

well im not to sure cuz i am pregnat now with my 5th child and this is the worst morning sickness so far i dont know what im having yet. but with this pregnacy its like im super tired all the time and have to eat like every two hours that is crazy. with my son i had morning sickness till my 3rd month but i was still able to go out and run around. with my daughter i was not as sick as i was with my son. i was still able to go out and have fun. with my twins omg i could only eat certin things and that was it i had morning sickness with them up until my 7th month but it was 2 of them so that was what was expected and they are girls. but with this one im un sure its tru that every pregnacy is different but i dont know its just hard to tell. good luck.
