If you’re someone who made it through the first trimester without any noticeable hiccups, how does it feel to be the universe’s favorite? That’s exactly what it feels like for many of us.
The singer announced her pregnancy to the world earlier this month and asked her fans to be “gentle” as they navigate the next few months of becoming a mother.

“Honestly, you girls just want to put on a catsuit, eat chocolate-covered pickles without a question, and cry ugly in public,” she wrote on Jan. 6.
But a video she recently posted shows clips of her experiences enduring her first trimester that will truly resonate with anyone who has gone through them…the unique first 12 weeks. For us, fatigue, nausea, raging hormones, and general anxiety are a lot to deal with.
“I was warned about that first semester and it was WOOFY WOOF,” Jessie J captioned the video.

In the video, she storms out in toilets, buff bags, trash cans, and more. She’s exhausted, nauseous, and gleeful in some shots. It’s all very real and very relatable.
“I can’t even describe how bad I feel,” she says at one point.
Last May, Jessie J first opened up about her 2021 miscarriage during an inspiring episode of Steven Bartlett’s podcast, “The Diary of a CEO.” She described her own experience as “the most honest, raw, emotional, frank and vulnerable conversation”.
“I felt like I was given everything I ever wanted, and then someone said, ‘But you can’t have it,'” she explained at the time. “When I came home that night and lay there, I never felt so alone in my life…I remember just laying there, knowing it was still there.” but it wasn’t there.”
Anyone who has had a miscarriage can relate to the pain she describes. This makes it all the more bittersweet that she went through the first trimester of her current pregnancy — vomiting and all.
