What is this article about?

Being pregnant is a wonderful time in your life. It is a time when you are in awe of what your body is capable of doing, in disbelief that you are having a baby and experiencing the feelings of excitement and nervousness that come with being pregnant. These feelings of pregnancy are discussed often, as well as how your body physically changes in order to grow the beautiful little baby currently residing in your tummy. However, what isn’t discussed so much is the difficulty in managing some of those not-so-fun effects of pregnancy. This is even more difficult if you have made the decision not to tell people the happy news until you have reached the end of those first 12 weeks, which is ironically when effects are at their worst.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
