I was veeerrryyyyyy lucky to have a pretty symptom free first-trimester. I had little to no morning sickness but I did get hit hard with fatigue. I was napping almost every afternoon regardless of how much I had slept the night before. Then I started drinking butt-kicking superfood shakes every morning and it has really helped a lot. Even into the second-trimester as I have regained some of my energy back, this shake really helps me feel my best starting first thing in the morning or when I need an afternoon pick-me-up. I use three different Boku Superfood Powders, their trifecta as they call it, and you don't have to be pregnant to benefit from these glorious nutrition packed products. The Boku Super Fuel I use does have a small amount of caffeine because of the matcha and cacao ingredients, but no more than the daily mg amount of caffeine recommended for pregnant women. I was also experiencing some pretty bad hormonal breakouts and I have noticed the more I drink this shake, the better my skin looks! It really is a win-win.
