What if I sleep on my stomach? Is that ok? I'm only 12 weeks.

Nessa Pixie Parker says:

I’m 22 weeks with my first baby and I love this video. It’s so good to know that my still ongoing morning sickness is relatively normal. I was kinda bummed about from doctor to doctor because I found out I was pregnant at 13 weeks so for me these kind of videos are really helpful as I can never remember questions at my appointments

Fiorella Thomas says:

Great content. But Please wear microphones next time. Very hard to hear at times, even with headphones

Neith Little says:

This series is amazing! Thank you!

Lauren says:

What an awful doctor. Doesn’t know anything! You need to be sure of your answers when vulnerable people are taking medical advice..

Megan Medley says:

When I was in the 2nd trimester with my first child, my husband and I went to American Sniper. Every time a shot went off, he went crazy–kicking like mad. I was so worried he was scared or upset.
