While many women initially assume that pregnancy is simply going to be a nine months of nursery decorating the nursery, baby clothes shopping and eating for two. However, baby development can take its toll on a woman's body, which is what singer Gwen Stefani said in a recent interview with Vogue magazine.
The lead singer of the band No Doubt spent time recording her new album and touring while pregnant with her first son, Kingston. She told the news source that doing so was a challenge.
"I did my first solo record and went on tour while I was pregnant," Stefani told Vogue. "I would want to throw up during certain songs. Certain outfits would make me sick. It was torture. I toured until I was four-and-a-half months pregnant, showing."
Stefani explained that she hit the road just eight months after giving birth, which made it difficult to balance life as a new mom and a working woman. She nursed her child in her tour bus each night before going on stage, adhering to a rigorous schedule. Despite all of the obstacles, her success shows that she was eventually able to establish a manageable work-life balance.
Morning sickness is one symptom of pregnancy that slows many women down - even celebrities. Some of the most common side effects of this condition include nausea, vomiting and fatigue. Although, there is no cure for morning sickness, which is thought to be the result of a fluctuation in hormones. Many experts recommend eating balanced meals and avoiding greasy and spicy foods to quell the symptoms.
