Hormones and the First Trimester

I think the raging hormones during a woman's first trimester also serves another purpose other than developing a fetus. It's also nature's way of making sure a woman doesn't put on weight the first three months since she's likely to put on a lot the next six months. Even the safest weight loss pills couldn't hold a candle to the perpetual nausea and total lack of appetite as well as the aversions to old favorites.

And yes, I am sort of griping again.

But at least, I am on my 10th week now. That leaves me with just two more weeks and then I may feel blessedly like myself again.

In the meantime, a breakfast of milk and papaya would just have to do.
