Morning sickness, often known as nausea and vomiting, is one of the most frequent pregnancy symptoms, especially in the first three months. Morning sickness can range from mild nausea and vomiting to severe nausea and vomiting when your stomach is empty. It happens most frequently in the morning, but it can happen at any time of day. While it normally goes away at 14 weeks into the second trimester, sometimes it lingers throughout the pregnancy and It may be even more difficult if you're carrying twins.

Heartburn and indigestion can strike at any moment during pregnancy, but the second and third trimesters are the most common. Due to your increasing belly size, pressure is put on your stomach causing food to go back up into your esophagus causing a sour taste in your mouth which also comes with burning and pain.

During pregnancy, as your tummy swells, your muscles, ligaments, and joints also stretch out and loosen. These alterations have an impact on your balance and center of gravity causing tension on your shoulders and as your body tries to adjust to this position the strain causes your lower back to ache.
