Is it normal if...? Your pregnancy questions answered

Common questions and concerns about pregnancy

 

It's normal not to experience ALL the usual signs of pregnancy, particularly the strongest ones. During the first 3 months, some women experience many different signs: tender breasts, nausea and/or vomiting, repulsion to certain smells, and the list goes on. Other women seem barely affected. If you're not experiencing any effects, keep an eye out for more subtle signs: you may have slower digestion, an urge to sleep more often and increased sensitivity to some smells.

One effect on all mums-to-be is expanding breasts. "All pregnant women find that their breasts grow and become fimer", says Dr Goupil-Rousseau. So if your breasts don't change, see your doctor as there could be a possibility of miscarriage.
