It is the desire for every woman who conceives to have a successfully pregnancy period. This goes together with body changes as the baby continues to develop and grow in the uterus.

Here are some of the expected changes in woman's body during the pregancy journey;

1. Changes in hormones 

Women experience continued increase in estrogen and progesterone hormones. These hormones contributes to mood swings, development of foetus,changes in functionality of other hormones as well as altering physical activity on the body.

Estrogen hormone increases as the baby griws thus enabling the uterus and placenta to transfer nutrients, development of the baby as well as formation of blood vessels. In addition, its also responsible for development of milk duct that enlarges breast and in some cases it causes nausea.

Progesterone helps loosen joints and ligaments in the body. Also, it helps internal structures to increase in size such as uterus and ureters.

2. Weight gain

This causes an increase in workload on the body of a pregnant woman from any physical activity and this slows down circulation of blood and blood fluids. As a result, swelling of face and limbs is likely to happen as more fluids is retained in the body.

Research carried out recommends one to rest, avoid standing for long time,avoid sodium and caffeine as well as increase potassium in order to ease swelling. 

3. Changes in sensory

This focuses on your sight, taste and smell. Research shows some women experience vision related problems such as blurriness and discomfort with contact lenses.
