Fatigue is very common in pregnancy, but it’s also common in anemia. Keep an eye on your symptoms.

This change in skin colour could mean that you have iron deficiency. Speak to your healthcare provider if you have other symptoms too.

Lots of women experience some wild cravings during pregnancy so it’s completely normal. If you’re craving ice specifically, it could be a sign of iron deficiency.

Headaches are common during early pregnancy, because of hormonal changes and your increasing blood volume. Do something gentle and relaxing.

Shortness of breath should not be ignored. It could be a sign of anemia, but maybe also something more serious. Please speak to your doctor.

Light-headedness and dizziness are common during early pregnancy, as well as iron deficiency. When you get out of bed or a chair, do it slowly. If you’re worried, chat to your healthcare provider.

Forgetfulness is normal and common during pregnancy aka “Momnesia” It could also be a sign of severe anemia. Make lists, keep a journal, and when in doubt, speak to your doctor.

Hair loss could be a sign of anemia, and is also fairly common in pregnancy. Make sure you’re eating plenty of healthy food.

Feeling weak is a common symptom of anemia. Speak to your doctor to get checked for anemia.

Frequent urination is part and parcel of pregnancy, especially as your baby grows and starts pressing onto your bladder.

Constipation and feeling bloated are common during pregnancy.

Nausea during pregnancy is common and is called morning sickness, but it can happen at any time of the day.

Personal Pregnacy Stories.
By Moms For Moms.

Portrait 1

My birth experience was great. My labour was only 2 hours, which compared to others, was a short labour. Pregnancy was more tricky. Despite the hardships, I realized that this was my body’s unique and clever way of preparing for the ups and downs of motherhood. 

Portrait 2

My pregnancy was a rollercoaster ride! Nausea was pretty constant. Not morning sickness. All day sickness, but thankfully, I managed to keep food down. My days started with me sitting up in bed, munching on dry crackers and ginger sweets to stop feeling green.

Pregnancy-story

Pregnancy, for me, was an enchanting journey filled with joy and vitality. From the moment I saw those two pink lines on the pregnancy test, I felt like I was floating on a cloud. People couldn’t stop talking about that pregnancy glow, and boy, did I wear it proudly!

WHAT TO EXPECT IN EACH TRIMESTER

Your pregnancy is broken into three parts, called trimesters. There are three trimesters that last approximately three months each. Each brings its own growth and changes for you and your baby.

What to expect in each trimester

Your pregnancy is broken into three parts, called trimesters. There are three trimesters that last approximately three months each. Each brings its own growth and changes for you and your baby.

1 MONTH

Fertilization occurs and your baby is now approximately the size of a poppy seed. The placenta and amniotic sac begin to form. Start getting excited!

2 MONTHS

All major organs and body systems are developing. Your baby is constantly moving and shifting and is now approximately the size of a kidney bean.

3 MONTHS

All organs, limbs, bones, and muscles are present and will continue to develop. The fetus is about 2.5 to 3 inches (6.35 to 7.62 cm) long, about the size of a plum.

4 MONTHS

Lips and ears are developed enough that your baby can hear you talk. Your baby’s limbs are moving and they’re roughly equal in size to an avocado.

5 MONTHS

The fetus’s nails grow towards the end of its fingers. Your baby is roughly the same length as a banana. It’s amazing; you’re growing a baby inside you!

6 MONTHS

Lungs are fully developed, but not well enough to work outside your uterus. Your baby is about the size of an ear of corn. Keep up the good work for the third trimester.

7 MONTHS

Up until now, your baby has been in an upright position (head at the top, feet at the bottom). Baby may begin turning head-down in your uterus as it gets ready for birth.

8 MONTHS

Your baby’s skin isn’t translucent anymore and is close to a jicama in size. You’re nearly there. Keep up with healthy food choices for you and baby.

9 MONTHS

It’s your due date week. Your baby is about 18 to 20 inches (45.72 to 50.8 cm) long and weighs about 7 to 9 pounds (3.18 to 4.08 kg). Get ready to meet him/her!

1st Trimester

1st Trimester

During the first trimester your body undergoes many changes. Hormonal changes trigger symptoms like extreme tiredness and nausea. Your period will have stopped and you may have tender, swollen breasts. You might need to make changes to your daily routine, such as going to bed earlier or eating frequent, small meals.

2nd Trimester

2nd Trimester

A lot of women find the second trimester of pregnancy easier than the first. You might notice that symptoms like nausea and fatigue are going away. As your body changes to make room for your growing baby, you may get stretch marks on your belly and a dark line on the skin running from your belly button to your pubic hairline.

3rd Trimester

3rd Trimester

In the third trimester, you might notice heartburn and swelling of the ankles, fingers, and face. Frequent trips to the toilet and finding a comfortable position lying down might make sleep difficult. Your breasts may leak a pre-milk liquid called colostrum, getting ready for baby’s arrival. You’re in the home stretch!
