Pregnancy affects women's skin in all sorts of ways. It may be greasier than usual, have a rash, stretch marks or pigmentation - all because of the hormones and other changes taking place in your body.
About half of all pregnant women report feeling nauseous during pregnancy. It's due to a combination of a drop in blood sugar levels and/or fluctuating pregnancy hormones. And it can be really, really tough.
It's easier said than done, to stop smoking. But expecting a baby is a really good reason to quit and maybe your best-ever motivator.
There is far too much talk about weight during the pregnancy. This is a time to be eating as healthily as you can so you deliver a healthy baby.
Pregnancy doesn't mean you have to confine yourself to the couch for 40 weeks. Far from it. Taking regular exercise won't just make you feel better, it can also help with the birth.
You don't have to stop going to the gym when you're pregnant. just ask the staff to tailor your fitness programme as your pregnancy progresses.
Oops! Your waters have broken, but no contractions. Call your LMC. It may not be time to have your baby just yet, but it is time for a check-up.
There's really no reason to avoid sex during pregnancy. It causes no harm to the baby. Probably, the only reason for not having sex is if one of you doesn't feel like it.
You might be keen to get rid of some of your baby weight after the birth, but to begin with, walking will have to do, until your midwife gives you the green light to increase your efforts.
You don't have to sign up for a class or a gym to get that heart rate going. The only thing you need to do is step out of the house.
You don't have to stop travelling when you're pregnant. You can travel and even fly right up until week 36, as long as you're feeling OK.
