Baby's growth

Changes in mother

You may still feel tired and nauseous. As the pregnancy develops, the baby puts pressure on the colon, which can increase constipation. If you want to get out of this, eat high-fiber foods in combination with plenty of water.

It's good you know...

The risk of miscarriage has been greatly reduced, so you can be more relaxed. Remember that it is important to reduce your salt intake, as excess salt can cause hypertension. Also be careful with the sugar you eat, an excess could cause fatigue, cavities, or disorders in the blood metabolism.
