Symptoms in the first trimester of pregnancy

What changes occur in your body during the first trimester of pregnancy?

While your first sign of pregnancy might have been a missed period, you can expect several other physical changes in the coming weeks, including:

Sensitive and swollen breasts:

Shortly after conception, hormonal changes can make your breasts tender. The symptoms will likely subside after a few weeks as your body adjusts to hormonal changes.


During early pregnancy, progesterone hormone levels skyrocket, which can make you sleepy. Rest as much as possible. Having a healthy diet and exercise can increase your energy levels.

Nausea with or without vomiting:

Morning sickness, which can occur at any time of the day or night, often begins a month after pregnancy. This could be due to increased hormone levels. To relieve nausea, “Mamás Thai Massage” has developed an effective treatment that combines stretching with acupressure points. Discover our prenatal massages.

What are the causes of Postpartum Depression?


You may be urinating more often than usual. The amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy, causing your kidneys to process extra fluid that goes into your bladder.

Cravings and Dislikes:

When you are pregnant you may be more sensitive to certain smells and your sense of taste may change. As with most other pregnancy symptoms, food preferences can be attributed to hormonal changes.


High progesterone hormone levels can slow the movement of food through your digestive system and cause constipation. Iron supplements can alleviate the problem. To prevent or relieve constipation, get plenty of fiber in your diet and drink plenty of fluids, especially water and prune or other fruit juices. Regular physical activity also helps.
