Maternity: An Exciting Time Begins
While you may be filled with anticipation, excitement or concerns about the new baby on the way, not many things in life can actually prepare you for the changes happening to your body during pregnancy.
For example, under the influence of the pregnancy hormone, your tummy will grow in the coming months to make room for your baby, and at a rate that may be faster than you can easily adapt.
Your tummy will grow in both weight and circumference, making strong demands on a healthy body. As a general rule, you should expect to gain a total of 20 to 30 pounds or 10 to 14 kilograms in weight.
