What Is Happening With You And Your Body:

  • You may gain a pound or two.
  • Your waist and breast size increases, and your nipples begin to darken.
  • Uterus may feel like a small lump above your pubic bone. It is softer, rounded and larger and it crowds the bladder, so you may urinate more often.
  • Placenta is growing and more hormones are being produced.
  • Tissues around the vagina become bluish as more blood supply nourishes the baby.
  • Vaginal flow becomes thicker, whiter and stickier.
  • You may be more tired and have less energy this month.
  • Nausea (morning sickness) may still occur and it may be more noticed in the morning.

    What Is Happening With Your Baby:
