20. Itching sensation on the skin:
When you are pregnant, you will experience mild itching sensations on the skin. It happens due to the increase in blood supply to the skin. Wear loose and comfortable clothes. Ensure the fabric is soft and breathable, as it will help prevent the itching from worsening. Speak to your doctor about certain pregnancy creams that can prevent or reduce itching. If the condition gets severe, then talk to your doctor as it could be a condition known as obstetric cholestasis (OS).
21. Spider veins:
When you are pregnant, your body produces excess estrogen. As a result, you notice a sudden breakout of veins all over your body. Once you deliver your baby, the spider veins will slowly fade away. Speak to your doctor if you see them even after the delivery.
22. Dry skin:
Your skin feels drier when you are pregnant. The various changes in hormonal levels, fatigue and lack of sleep can all aggravate the dryness that can also tell you are pregnant. Use some home remedies and drink water and liquids to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. If the condition worsens, speak to your doctor about safe topical treatments .
23. Enlargement of uterus:
Your uterus will increase in size when you are pregnant. You will not be able to notice this change, but your doctor will observe this during a physical exam or imaging test. As your pregnancy progresses, your uterus will require more space to accommodate the growing baby. Other factors too could make your uterus increase in size. If you also experience symptoms such as pain during intercourse and heavy bleeding, do speak to your doctor about it.
