Pregnancy Month Three
Your Pregnant Body Month by Month
The third month of pregnancy is typically one of the hardest, usually because you feel so rotten and yet don't feel pregnant. This can be exacerbated by the fact you have yet to share your good news. If you're waiting until the end of the first trimester to tell your friends and family about the baby, you may feel that you have to hide some of the feelings that you're experiencing physically. This can complicate matters. One mom described it is making her feel incredibly grumpy.

Physical Changes in Pregnancy

  • Your pregnancy will continue to have symptoms like morning sickness, fatigue, and a decrease in your desire for sex.
  • Your belly doesn't really show right now, but as you reach the end of this month your uterus will be slightly above your pelvis.
  • Your breasts may increase in size, they may also feel fuller and be more tender. You may notice that the areola gets darker during this month.
  • Some symptoms of the first trimester leave you as you head towards the second trimester, like the fatigue and morning sickness.

Emotional Mom

  • Feeling anxious about the health of the baby is a common feeling at this point in pregnancy
  • Your partner may or may not also share concerns about the pregnancy.
