The idea of having a human life growing inside of you is still incomprehensible to many – even women who are pregnant. This new baby will bring about many changes in your life from the very beginning in some subtle and not so subtle ways. Here are a few things every woman will experience during their first trimester of pregnancy.

Constant urination
Your body will need more water than usual to cope with the new changes occurring. In addition, your growing uterus and placenta, and hormones will be placing added pressure on your bladder.

Gassy much?
Your organs will be shifting and a as result you will experience increased pressure on your digestive system and stomach. This can lead to moments where you are gassy, bloated, and maybe even constipated.

Contrary to popular belief, morning sickness doesn’t just occur in the morning. You will feel nausea at all hours of the day.

Sense of smell
Your sense of smell will increase immensely. Some smells will be pleasant but most will make you want to puke. Try carrying around scented lotion and strategically placing it under your nose.

Growing pains
Your breast will feel achy, tender, and sore. They will start to grow around the first 6 to 8 weeks and continue to grow throughout your pregnancy.

Constant fatigue
Everything, even the smallest task may seem difficult to complete because all you will want to do is take a nap!

Yes, your body is going through changes but they will not last forever. In fact, research shows that many women miss their pregnancy symptoms once they are gone. Enjoy this new time in your life!
