3. The First Trimester is Scariest

Ask a bunch of childless women when the scariest month of pregnancy is, and they’ll tell you month 9, no question. But it’s actually the first three months that are the most stressful.

Morning sickness tends to be worst during this period, which makes life seem a little rubbish, and the higher possibility of miscarriage during those early months can play on your mind too. Everyone wants to hit that 12 week safety time, when you can share your news! Then there are all the tough decisions you have to make. Most genetic testing takes place early, and with all the odds and risks, it can feel crazy. Luckily, after the third month, everything settles down and you can love being pregnant once more.
