But, if it is still not right - see your doctor for an exam and lab work. Being pregnant makes it even more important to be checked and your body may be a sensitive one too.

I would drink as much fluid as you can: thin soups, ginger tea, lemonade, coconut water etc to support your body through this ...Read more
