I got pregnant with first baby in November 1988. I knew exactly when I got pregnant as I had mittelschmerz, pain when you ovulate. I had morning sickness about a week later and felt extremely nauseus when the smell of brocolli came wafting up to my office at a work pitch-in. I lost 7 pounds in the first trimester. When I was feeling better, I made my own maternity outfits and bedding for my baby's crib. In the last 5 weeks of my pregnancy, I had to be on bedrest for high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia. I managed to knit a few things for baby then.
