Your Pregnant Body Month by Month
Many moms feel a sense of sensuality and sexuality increasing this month. This can be a great time to reconnect with your partner. If you're having issues with sex, talk to your practitioner. The vast majority of women have no restrictions in the bedroom.

Physical Changes in Pregnancy

  • Your baby's movements become easier for you to feel. You may feel your baby move more frequently or with more regularity.
  • If heartburn plagues you, try smaller, more frequent meals and avoid offending foods.
  • Are you having practice contractions, known as Braxton Hicks contractions?
  • Many women tell you to really enjoy this month before the fatigue and symptoms of the third trimester slip in...
  • Do you know the symptoms of premature labor?

Emotional Mom

  • You are probably thoroughly enjoying your pregnancy at this point.
