Changes that happen in your body when you are pregnant

One of the most remarkable and unavoidable things you will experience when you are pregnant are the amazing changes you will experience in your body week after week and month after month.

In this post we tell you phase by phase that your body and mind will experience. But we also want to make it clear that each woman is different, and each body reacts differently .

The weight may be one of the most significant changes over the course of a pregnancy. It is possible to increase up to 400 grams per week, which would mean that at the end of the pregnancy the weight could ascend up to 12 kilos, approximately.

In the face of this, little can be done since the mother needs to feed herself adequately, to strengthen and ensure the good health of her baby .

Remedies; Follow your doctor’s advice, eat a healthy, balanced diet, and be physically active if recommended by your doctor .

First trimester of pregnancy

The first trimester of pregnancy is one of the most exciting, since everything is new, the illusion and emotion of the mother to be pregnant are united, despite the fact that in this cycle it is not yet possible to fully appreciate the tummy.

Approximately one week after fertilization, the fertilized egg reaches the mother’s uterus, where it settles during the next few months of pregnancy.

After a few days, the cells will give rise to the embryo and placenta . And it is from this moment, where the changes in the mother’s organism will begin to bloom.

From this point on, the first symptoms begin to appear, as if it were a menstruation… Tightness in the chest, tiredness, increased vaginal secretion, mania for certain foods…

In the second month of pregnancy mood can start to vary, don’t worry, it’s completely normal because of the hormonal revolution that’s taking place inside your body.

The chest may have increased slightly in size, producing some discomfort and pain, with the Montgomery tubers already being perceived in the areola, some small nodules as usual.

It is normal that at this point some nausea and dizziness begin to appear , not all mothers have them , so you may be one of the privileged.

You’ll also start noticing the constant need to urinate , and that your saliva production increases .

From here, the belly starts to feel and that means that you have to start cleaning the wardrobe and select what you feel more comfortable , since fit clothes tend to hinder blood circulation.

Go shopping! One of the most essential things is that you start with buy bras, so that the chest is not squeezed . One of the best choices are the lactation bras. They are comfortable, and so you have them for when you breastfeed, as you will come the sea of good.

At this point also, the hormone that causes nausea and changes in appetite begins to decrease .

The teeth may become a little annoying, due to hormonal changes the gums may become a little swollen , in addition, we think that the fetus absorbs a lot of calcium .

Arrived at the end of this trimester, the baby’s vital organs have already fully formed.

Second trimester of pregnancy

It is probably one of the most rewarding stages. The initial molestias usually disappear completely and the baby’s kicks begin to be felt.

In the fourth month of pregnancy, the woman feels more vital, since vomiting and the tiredness of the beginning usually disappears after the 12 week. The waist disappears and the hips begin to round.

Nipples become darker and increase in size.

It is here that the vertical line of the center of the abdomen usually appears, with a blackish tone. But don’t worry, it will fade after delivery.

It is here at this point that the uterus can put more pressure on the stomach, causing poor digestion and constipation. Discuss it with your doctor if necessary and follow his advice, you will appreciate it.

In the fifth month of pregnancy, is when one of the most awaited and wonderful moments of pregnancy arrives. Your baby’s first kicks, since they are usually noticed around the 20th week, although mothers who repeat them tend to notice them a few days earlier.

Halfway through pregnancy heart rate accelerates and breathing is usually deeper .

You’ll also begin to notice the very familiar contractions of “Braxton Hicks”. It is possible to start noticing after the 20th week of pregnancy, becoming more intense, without becoming painful, as the weeks progress. Their task is to prepare the uterus for subsequent labor .

Also the tummy begins to be more voluminous and the maternity garments are already an ally of your day to day .

You also start retaining more liquids. You may notice more arm and ankle swelling .

Hair could also become somewhat more abundant.

And you may suffer gas because of constipation.

We don’t smell the sofocus from sudden temperature increases , if you are pregnant in the middle of winter, it will probably be the warmest winter of your life.

In the sixth month of pregnancy , the gut is already noticeably appreciated. The uterus grows non-stop and extends above the

navel.

The skin on your tummy tends to stretch quite a bit and you may start to notice mild itching, which with a good moisturizer will soothe and calm you, as well as prevent stretch marks .

The navel usually protrudes, remaining so until delivery, but calm, then everything returns to normal.

The baby grows and grows without stopping, besides not stopping still and turning around, changing his position frequently , thus feeling the most wonderful movements.

At this stage the uterus no longer has enough space in the pelvis, so as it spreads, displaces the intestines by lightly pressing on the diaphragm and liver . You may notice a slight drowning sensation… Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it and it’ll pass.

You’ll feel more urge to urinate all the time, since the bladder is also more oppressed than normal.

Nipples, in addition to continuing to increase in size, are often more sensitive, as they begin to prepare for lactation. Prolactin, which is the hormone that stimulates milk production, thus prepares the breasts for that moment.

Third trimester of pregnancy

The gut is very bulky as the baby grows and grows, preparing your body for the time of delivery. At this point your preparation for giving birth and for motherhood will help you considerably to cope with the arrival of your baby much better.

Sometimes childbirths tend to be earlier, so it’s okay to prepare the hospital bag . Knowing that it is ready will help you to be calmer. In addition, as the pregnancy progresses and you reach its end, you will feel more tired, and the sooner you prepare things, the better.

As far as sexual relations are concerned, as long as the physician has not recommended otherwise, they can continue to be practiced without any problem .

Discomfort may begin to appear in the back and kidneys due to the weight of the gut. A lot of rest, warmth, and if someone offers to give you a massage, better than better .

Some mood swings, fears and some insecurities tend to appear. Childbirth is nearer and nearer and concern is beginning to be felt. It is not too much that you are physically prepared to give birth, it will help you to receive that moment with tranquility and strength , and you will carry it much better.

On the other hand, your body will have reached such a point that you will feel uncomfortable and uncomfortable with any sleeping posture. The best way for you to feel more comfortable will be on your side, hugging a pillow or pregnancy cushion. Try it!!

The eighth month of pregnancy, is usually one of the most uncomfortable of pregnancy.  The baby is usually placed the way it will be born, although this is not always the case. There is less and less room for movement, and the mother often feels heavier and more tired.

The discomfort you’ve been feeling in the past is further accentuated by the overexertion you have to do now.

When the baby has been placed with the head of the uterus already in place, small pains are usually noted in the lower abdomen, with some contraction of “Braxton Hicks”. It is very important to know how to differentiate them to avoid false alarms.

At this point, some hemorrhoid may appear due to constipation and the pressure exerted by the baby’s head in the pelvis.

Hence the baby can be born at any time, so it is usually normal to ask and low work and rest .

Ninth month of pregnancy

Welcome to the home stretch! Where days are eternal , and it seems that the time to give birth will never come.

The tripa you will notice that it will decrease, thus decreasing the tension on the thorax and stomach, fitting into the pelvis , a symptom that is already preparing for birth. If you are not a first timer, this descent may occur at the onset of contractions .

There may be a knock on your door at a place called “Nest Syndrome” where some women feel a need to clean up and tidy up . It is due to an ancestral instinct that moves future mothers to leave everything ready and prepared for the expected arrival.
