Your Changing Body
Hormones During Pregnancy Many hormone levels are affected in the body during pregnancy, with several hormones playing major roles.
Weight Gain During Pregnancy Average weight gain for women is between 25 and 35 pounds, although slight deviations from this may also be considered normal.
Common Discomforts During Pregnancy Nausea and vomiting are common in the first trimester, as is fatigue. Other common discomforts are hemorrhoids and heartburn.
Pregnancy and Posture Much back pain in pregnancy is related to the strain on your back from the weight of your growing baby. Using proper posture can help prevent and even relieve some of the pain.
