A Journey Through Pregnancy


Pregnancy can be a time of wonder and joy—and also a period of intricate stress and hardship. Beyond the bodily changes and hormonal swings, women undergo a series of difficult decisions and circumstances they won't find themselves in at any other time.

From that first positive pregnancy test to the (sometimes failed) attempts at a birth plan, pregnancy gives expectant mothers a lot to consider. At Giddy, we want to share in your joys and be there to answer the burning questions you face as your stomach gets bigger and the delivery date nears—and that's why we've created the ultimate roadmap.

Welcome to A Journey Through Pregnancy: a ten-part, comprehensive series where we'll discuss some of your most wondered-about topics. We'll cover subjects such as the mysterious symptoms of early pregnancy, the realities of your "delicate" state, the culture of gender reveal parties—and more. And don't worry, we'll make sure you know all the basics surrounding what exactly is happening to your body and your mind.

Join us every Monday for the newest installment—and kick those swollen feet up. You deserve it.
