The Mom:

Pregnancy is a time of many changes. You may notice that the increase in your hormones causes many different changes in your body. Some women find that their emotions range from tears of sadness to a feeling of total joy. You may also begin to have feelings of doubt about being a good parent or whether you have any maternal instincts at all. This is all very normal. It's OK to feel confused, and even have petty fights with your spouse. Just be sure to make up quickly, and discuss your worries and anxieties with him. If you find yourself feeling overstressed, you may want to practice relaxation techniques. These will help you throughout your pregnancy, labor and beyond.

You may notice that you are feeling warmer than usual, this is due to an increase in the amount of blood circulating in your body.

Your uterus is now about the size of a large orange. If you find your prepregnancy clothes uncomfortable, consider loose fitting clothing.
