The condition of a woman during pregnancy

When a woman learns that she is pregnant, she feels mixed feelings of joy and perhaps surprise, because it does not always turn out that the pregnancy was planned. But in 9 months of pregnancy, feeling the movements of the child, any woman wants to become a mother. She begins to keep a pregnancy calendar, noting any changes in her condition. Visiting the doctor, she learns more about the changes in her body and the body of the fetus. To make it easier to determine the approximate date of delivery, he asks for the last day of menstruation.

Most often in the first weeks, a woman does not even suspect that she will soon become a mother. Even a blood test is not always able to determine pregnancy at this time. There can be no toxicosis either, because the fertilized egg has not yet reached the uterus and has not attached itself to any of the walls. There are exceptions when it happens much faster, within two weeks, then the woman may feel weak, and maybe even have toxicosis. But this is only a small part of the cases.

From the fourth week, the body of most women already reacts to pregnancy. Indigestion may occur, leading to nausea and heartburn. In the same way, a woman becomes lethargic, sleepy.

It is in the fifth week that many women learn about a new life inside themselves. A woman’s taste preferences and mood change. It lasts up to 12 weeks on average. During this time, most of the child’s internal organs are already developed, and now the process of development of the nervous system and brain is taking place. At this time, it is important to take folic acid, for example, Apo-Folic or Elevit. As a rule, the hips and breasts begin to increase. At this moment, the uterus begins to press on the bladder and rectum, the woman begins to go to the toilet more often.

Around the 15th week, weight is gained, which requires wearing looser clothes so as not to interfere with the growing fetus.

As early as the 18th week, the future mother may feel slight movements, but it is not always possible to recognize these sensations, because they happen when you do not expect them at all. After a few weeks, you can easily recognize the baby’s movements and cannot confuse them with anything else. Most often, this happens when the mother is in a calm state, in the evening or at night. At this time, you can already determine the gender of the child.

From the 20th to the 30th week, the figure begins to change noticeably, every week it becomes harder to walk and the woman becomes more and more clumsy. Pain in the lower back and other parts of the spine may also appear. During this period, a woman needs to rest as much as possible, including outdoor recreation. The child moves actively and grows moderately.

At the 30th week, the child already reacts to all sounds, to light, her hair grows. The baby has already grown enough that he is not afraid of premature birth. It is becoming more and more difficult for the mother to be active, because the baby by this time already weighs about two kilograms. The baby will be born very soon.
