Funny, isn’t it? At first you wish for all the nasty symptoms to let up, and then it feels weird when they do. Luckily, feeling good doesn’t make you any less pregnant. Stop worrying and try to enjoy your newfound ability to keep your eyes open (and your food down). It’s normal to feel a bit strange right now, especially if you aren’t showing much or feeling the baby yet. Use all that energy to start planning the nursery, or to organize your maternity leave — or your closet. Get as much as possible done and out of the way while you’re feeling good.
