This Is How Mom Will Survive The First Trimester Based On Her Astro Sign

The first trimester (weeks 1 through 13) can be the best or worst trimester for many women. While it does vary from woman to woman, for the most part, we all have morning sickness in varying degrees of yucky and we are all pretty tired. This is usually just a taste of how tired we will end up being for several years to come, so be sure to savor those naps alone while you still can.

There is also an emotional roller coaster with the first trimester. Some of us will be overjoyed to be expecting, while others will be a little more apprehensive. Many of us will hit the search engine immediately after seeing that plus sign to get a jump on all the research ahead of us and to find a handy-dandy calculator to figure out when to expect our bundle of joy and see if we need to reschedule anything massively important in that month.

Then, it is on to Pinterest to look up cute ways to announce the news to our spouse and eventually our friends and family members. While we are there, we might as well look up some yummy healthy recipes and some mocktails too, because now we can’t celebrate with the real deal. And don’t forget to look up your horoscopes as well!

20 Sagittarius’ Wanderings Are Down


Sagittarius is known for being a wanderer. Born between November 22nd and December 21st, you are enthusiastic, generous and in love with life. You don’t like clingy people, so that newborn will try your patience—but you have nine months to prep for that. Due to morning sickness, you will find yourself tied down a bit for the first trimester. But don’t worry; Romper says,

“If you see a pregnant lady who appears impossibly serene and happy, then she is likely a Sagittarius. These moms really rock the pregnancy glow and abundant hair growth.”

That second trimester will suit your speed much better.

19 Capricorn Doesn’t Do Sick Days… Except For Today

The Miller Affect

You are the hard-working, responsible member of the Astro signs, so if you are expecting, congratulations! You did it on purpose and on your own terms, most likely. You will rock motherhood. But these early days of morning sickness will throw you for a loop. Born between December 22nd-January 19th, you like to work and don’t like missing days. But this is good practice for you for when baby comes. Romper says,

“These moms-to-be will approach pregnancy with determination and wisdom, ready and willing to accept its many challenges. But the loss of concentration that sometimes affects pregnant women will likely hit Capricorns extra-hard, given the sign's tendency to prize organization and pragmatism.”

18 Aquarius Tries All The Quirky Remedies


Aquarius arrives between January 20th and February 18th. You are known for your intelligence as well as your quirky, chaotic personality. You will also likely be pretty excited to try all the home remedies for morning sickness, swollen ankles and everything else just because you can and you want to see what happens. The Bump covers some of the common pregnancy myths and says,

“Do do this. Don't do that. With all the pregnancy advice out there, it's hard to keep track of what’s safe and what’s not—and what you should really believe. Of course, every pregnancy is different, so follow your doctor's orders above anything else.”

17 Pisces Daydreams


Born between February 19th and March 20th, Pisces is known for being wise, gentle and very artistic. Once you see that positive sign, you will start daydreaming about your new little baby. Then you will move onto picking out paint colors and creating the perfect nursery (on Pinterest or paper for now) for your perfect little one. It will definitely keep you occupied. According to Romper,

“Careful about making every doctor's appointment and trying to keeping their diet in tip-top shape, this woman will adapt well to the demands of pregnancy, which hopefully will be as gentle to her body as she is to everything around her.”

16 Aries Has Intense Mood Swings


Aries is a fire sign and one of the most energetic signs of the Astrology calendar. It takes a lot for people to keep up with you and you still outwork them. Born between March 21st and April 19th, you are the mom who masters everything first while the rest of us watch in awe. Your Tango points out,

“Their optimistic nature will aid them in taking on the emotional challenges faced during pregnancy. However, be cautious, as the Aries’s incredibly short temper makes them extremely likely for their pregnancy-related hormonal surges to come out in bursts of severe anger and aggression.”

15 Taurus Rolls With It, Mostly

Apples Under My bed

Born between April 20th and May 20th, Taurus mamas are very nurturing and caring moms with the intense patience needed for raising small impatient people. But you hate change as a general principle, so all the sudden changes that come along with pregnancy likely won’t thrill you. As Romper points out,

“Taurus moms will do anything to keep their growing baby happy, but they may not react well to any unexpected surprises during the pregnancy. Leaky boobs, changes in shoe size, and other ‘things they don't tell you’ about pregnancy may freak out the Taurus mom if she is not informed in advance.”

14 Gemini Goes Shopping

Essential Parent

Sociable Gemini arrives between May 21st and June 20th, ready to make friends and fly from flower to flower like a butterfly. Once you see that positive sign, you will be giddy with delight and will jump right into planning a shopping trip for cute baby outfits and that pizza you are craving. Romper says,

“This sociable sign will probably have a lovely pregnancy, enjoying the experience of bringing a new person into the world and taking every unexpected news with grace. The nesting instinct may hit this sign especially hard, though, so get ready to prepare the nursery room early.”

13 Cancer Takes Lots Of Pictures

Fairfield County Moms Blog

Cancer is one of the best signs to be a parent. Born between June 21st and July 22nd, Cancer is naturally very caring, nurturing and intuitive. You like to mother things and make your nest perfectly cozy for your little one. And one of the first things you will do will be to document your pregnancy with lots of pictures. Plus, you will keep them neatly organized as a keepsake for your baby. Your Tango says,

“They’re the ones likely to be caught taking pictures with tiny shoes on their growing bellies, framing sonogram pictures, smiling down at their belly with every kick and obsessing over little outfits for baby's first pictures.”

12 Leo Tells Everyone The Big News

If you are born between July 23rd and August 22nd, then you are a Leo. Leos are the powerhouses of Astrology as well as being intense fire signs. You are often uncompromising, which can get you into trouble—as well as being generous, loyal and very humorous. Your Tango points out,

“At the Leo’s pre-natal appointments, the Leo is the most likely to voice their preferred birthing plan and practically refuse to hear the alternatives. The Leo’s dramatic nature mixed with their need to be treated like royalty makes them the most likely of the astro signs to make pregnancy all about them.”

11 Virgo Panics

Seasons Medical

Arriving between August 23rd and September 22nd are the Virgos. You like to have things neatly organized and tidied away to your specifications, so the idea of a messy toddler will likely cause you to panic at least once. After that, your practical side will kick in and you will be good to go. All the baby-proofing will be tackled along with extras that many moms don’t bother with till later on in the parenting game. Romper confirms this, saying,

“These pragmatic folk will deal with pregnancy well because they have realistic expectations about the condition. They know that fatigue and other physical demands are part of the process.”

10 Libra Falls In Love


Libras are all about love, and when that love spills over and makes a baby, they will be all about loving that tiny new baby they are growing. Born between September 23rd and October 22nd, the main problem you will have in your pregnancy will be all the decisions you’ll have to make in such a relatively limited timeframe. As Romper says,

“Known to be indecisive, Libras may spend the entire pregnancy making and remaking decisions about delivery plans, baby names, and doula decisions. These moms would do well to practice relaxation techniques or prenatal yoga to keep body and mind in balance.”

9 Scorpio Plans The Nursery


Arriving between October 23rd and November 21st are the Scorpios. Though you would much rather be out traveling than prepping for a brand new addition to your family, you will eventually get down and dirty to plan out that nursery. You won’t get off easy in the emotional department, but at least you will have a nice room for baby. Your Tango points out,

“This mixed with their tendency to love freedom and travel makes them the most likely of the astro signs to be thrown into a bit of a life crisis when first hearing of their impending motherhood.”

8 Bonus Virgo Gets Busy Prepping

Today's Parent

When you are done panicking over future messy toddlers and your practical side kicks in, Virgo will shine during pregnancy. From all your research, you will know which foods are good for morning sickness, why you shouldn’t drink or smoke and what is happening to your body. Knowledge is power in this game, and you have all the knowledge. As Your Tango says,

“The Virgo’s enjoyment of healthy foods and books makes them one of the most common of the astro signs to read all of the books on pregnancy and motherhood and eat just right for a healthy pregnancy.”

7 Bonus Cancer Mothers Everything

ABC News

When we say that you mother everything, you really do. You probably do more for your man than you should, you likely helped raise your younger siblings and will probably take in your elderly parents someday, too—and you love baby animals! All of this sets you up to be one of the best moms around. According to Romper, there is one catch when it comes to pregnancy.

“The stereotypical emotional ups and downs often experienced during pregnancy may affect Cancer women especially, so if this is you, keep a pack of tissues on hand. It's totally cool if you're more teary than usual.”

6 Bonus Taurus Starts Cooking

Spoon University

As Your Tango points out, “The Taurus’s reliable and practical nature makes them likely to handle the stress of pregnancy with grace. They’re unlikely to ever miss a doctor’s appointment and are very likely to stay on top of their pregnancy health routine. Therefore, they are likely to have quite healthy pregnancies.”

This translates to cooking for many women, and there is no better way to guarantee a healthy meal than to cook it from scratch yourself. Plus, you will need to hone that skill for when baby is older, bigger and hungry all the time. There is nothing better than a home-cooked meal.

5 Bonus Pisces Paints A Picture

Medical Daily

Your Tango says, “The Pisces have a bit of a timid nature, which makes them prone to worry during their pregnancies. Something that they will try to escape from by distracting themselves (generally with music or their preferred form of spirituality).”

This might not be you essentially, but one way you will likely cope and pass the time while waiting for baby to come will be to paint a picture. A really big, beautiful mural across the wall of baby’s room, to be precise. Have fun, Pisces, but be sure to rest and relax too before baby comes and changes your nap routine.

4 Fire Creates Warmth

The signs for fire are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. These signs are known for their power and energy and the way the room brightens up when they enter. They have tempers, but they also have great personalities and get the job done in record time. Momstrology says,

“Like fire itself, fire signs tend to be passionate, dynamic, and temperamental. Fire can keep you warm, or it can do great destruction. While fire burns out quickly without fuel to keep it going, it can also regenerate its power from the ashes. A single spark can set off a forest fire. As a result, fire signs need to be nurtured and managed carefully.”

3 Water Cradles Life

The signs for water are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. They are emotional, passionate and mysterious—respectively. And they make great parents because they are so intuitive. You can diagnose almost anything before your child even knows he is sick or feeling down and out about something. According to Momstrology,

“Intuitive, emotional and ultra-sensitive, water signs can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. Like water, they can be refreshing, or they can drown you in their depths. These signs often have intense dreams and borderline-psychic intuition. Security is important to them—after all, water needs a container, or it dries up and disappears.”

2 Air Sustains Life

The signs for air are Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. These signs are highly communicative and know how to express themselves in numerous ways, but they don’t always know what they want. They can be indecisive till they make up their minds finally or someone decides for them. According to Momstrology,

“Air signs are all about action, ideas, and motion—they are the ‘winds of change.’ When a strong gust hits you, you can’t help but move. While some within their ranks may be true-life ‘airheads,’ others are as powerful as a gravity-defying G-force. Air signs bring everyone a breath of fresh air when things start to get stale.”

1 Earth Nourishes

The signs for earth are Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. They are known for being grounded, level-headed and calm (especially when paired up with a flighty air sign or emotional water sign). There is a reason that earth is called mother, and it is because earth is gentle, patient and nurturing in deep ways. According to Momstrology,

“Earth signs keep it real. They are the ‘grounded’ people on the planet, the ones who bring us down to earth and remind us to start with a solid foundation. Slow and steady, these ‘builders’ are loyal and stable and stick by their people through hard times.”
