Few of the symptoms which you may notice at fourteen weeks are:
During pregnancy, your breasts prepare for breastfeeding, and increased levels of prolactin support this activity. 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.
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.
Your pregnancy results in an increased blood flow to various parts of your body including your nasal cavity. The nasal cavity receiving a sudden inflow of blood can often result in congestion and a stuffy nose. Also, pregnant women with allergies find that their allergies increase. The general term given to all these conditions is pregnancy rhinitis.
Welcome to the second trimester. You have more and more energy to focus on things you need to prepare for your little one. Your body is doing its work and adjusting to the changes. Meanwhile, concentrate on good foods, good health, and people to have a positively progressing pregnancy.
As you experience hyper-energy levels, you will notice that your appetite has sizably increased. At this time, concentrate on having a healthy diet, indulge in healthy cravings, and avoid sugary items and colas as much as possible.
Your fatigue comes down, and you will not feel as exhausted as you used to. Your body is adjusting to the thousand changes happening inside. Take care and enjoy this phase while it lasts. Fatigue and exhaustion may come back during the third trimester of pregnancy, and there is nothing to worry about but take care and be prepared.
It's time to say goodbye to nausea and morning sickness. You will feel much better because of the ability to keep the food down, and your energy levels will increase. Don't forget to take your multivitamins religiously. Take some time out for yourself, exercise, meditate and eat a healthy diet.
Hormonal rush, nausea, and throwing up can lead to this condition. In addition, pregnant ladies who crave sweets and junk may increase their intake damaging their teeth and gums. While some women may struggle with increased saliva production, others can experience reduced saliva. It can also cause oral damage like sore and bleeding gums.
During pregnancy, ligaments that support your uterus experience pressure due to its growth and expansion. This pressure results in round ligament pain, and you must get proper rest to cope. For some women, this pain will continue till delivery.

Your baby is as big as a Peach now. This week officially marks the beginning of second trimester. Congratulations!!
This week it’s time for some hair growth. Your baby is sprouting hair on the body, head, and eyebrows. But don’t worry, you will not give birth to an ape! The ultra fine hair forming on the baby’s body are called Lanugo and they function to keep the baby’s body warm and cozy.
As the baby’s brain cells continue to grow, the baby can exhibit facial expressions like- frowning, squinting, and even smiling!
The baby’s neck is getting longer, helping the head to stand more erect, and giving the fetus a more straighter appearance.
Baby’s intestine is producing meconium. It is the waste that will make up the first bowel movement after birth.
Your tiny Peach is trying out some new moves this week!!! The baby, tiny as it may be, is constantly on the move inside your womb. These movements are more fluid in comparison to their movements during the last trimester when you feel kicks and punches.
Your baby’s genitals are fully formed during this week, though it is too early to detect whether you are having a boy or a girl.
