Hyperenergetic

By this time, for some women, the hormone growth levels off and this is the contributing factor for decrease in morning sickness. The same hormone regulation also reduces fatigue and impoves your energy levels leading to feeling hyperenergitic or experiencing higher energy levels.

Bleeding Gums

Many pregnant women start dealing with pregnancy gingivitis around this time during their pregnancy. Constant acidity and throwing up lead to the acumulation of the acid in their mouth which may damage the gums leading to acidity. Hormone upheveals also often leads to this condition.

Leaky Breasts

During pregnancy, your breasts are preparing themselves for breastfeeding and this acticity is supported by increased levels of a hormone known as prolactin. For some women, this hormone is produced at higher levels as a result of which they may experience leaky breasts. This symptom is quite normal and nothing to worry about.

Increase Appetitie

While you are experiencing hyperenergy levels, you will find that your appetite has largely increased. All this is again due to changing hormone levels and is an indication that your body is working the way it is supposed to.

This week it’s time for your baby’s hair growth. Your baby’s skin is thickening and hair follicles are growing. Don’t worry, you will not give birth to an ape! Your baby may have a head full of hair or not. Hair follicles are currently forming under the skin this week.

Baby’s Sense of Smell:

Baby is also developing a sense of taste and smell this week. So if you are having cravings, know that your baby is making you crave for them.

Baby’s Intestine:

Baby’s intestine is producing meconium. It is the waste that will make up the first bowel movement after birth.

Baby’s Legs

Those little legs are now able to flex as well as the arms. These movements allow your baby to move hands to mouth. With each passing week, your baby is now looking more human-like.

Others

Baby is learning to move his/her hands and trying to mimic hand-to-mouth actions and it is swallowing tiny amounts of amniotic fluid. This fluid goes into their stomach, through their kidneys and comes back out as urine.

Your's Changing Body

The ever-growing uterus puts pressure on different nearby organs, one of them being the nerves in your legs. This pressure on your leg nerves can cause leg cramps. There is also lesser blood circulation to your legs since the uterus puts pressure on the blood vessels.

As we explained earlier, the levelling off of hormone levels leads to reduction and disappearance of morning sickness, and related nausea and vomitings. It is now time for you to start enjoying your pregnancy to the fullest.

Your pregnancy results in an increased blood flow to various parts of your body including your nasal cavity. The nasal cavity recieving a sudden onflow of blood can often result in congestion and a stuffy nose. Also pregnant women with allergies find that their allergies increase. The gerenal term gives to all these conditions is pregnancy rhinitis.

Your uterus is supported by ligaments which experience pressure due to the growing uterus. This pressure results in ligament pain and for women this pain will continue till delivery.
