Try Pelvic tilts...... it is the best exercise to soothe backaches and for ease delivery.

Hi there, yes you might be tiny that's why it's already showing. Actually it depends on a woman's body so do not worry you're fine unless your Ob-gyne tells you that you are not.

Hi Liz,
Congratulation for conceiving. I am saying this because I know of plenty of women out there who are struggling to conceive to no avail. It is just unfortunate that you are 16 years old. I am not sure whether you are still in school or you have cleared. Whatever the case, I just want to encourage you to take care of the pregnancy. I have also interacted with plenty of women who are actively looking for children but they are unable to conceive. Some of them have confided in me that they conceived when they were between 16 and 20 and terminated he pregnancy. Most of them suspect that it is the abortions the procured that is causing the current woes. So what does it tell me? That you should try your level best to ensure that you carry the pregnancy to full term. Do not worry about your body size. The human body is made is wonderfully made and will adjust to accommodate the pregnancy. To answer your question about nausea, I would like to say that it is a normal occurrence. You see when a woman conceives, the level of hormones in the body increases. When they are too high, they lead to nausea and vomiting. What is happening to you is caused by the fact that the level of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) is high. hCG leads to nausea and it’s found to affect 70% of expectant mothers. Its symptoms are common in the first trimester. However, it will subside as you move to the second trimester.
