Your's Changing Body

If you are experiencing dizzy spells during pregnancy, this happens due to the hormone progesterone. This hormone causes more blood flow to the uterus to support your growing bean. As a result, the blood flow to your brain reduces, your blood pressure reduces, and you will experience dizziness and this is normal during pregnancy.

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.

Heartburns continuing to bother you? You may have to put up with this condition for some more time. As difficult as this may sound, acidity indicates continuing surge of hormones which means your pregnant body is continuing to do what it is supposed to be doing.

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.
