Your Changing Body

Your expanding body also means expanding skin. That can lead not only to stretch marks, but itchy skin as well, so stay moisturized and try calming lotions to soothe any discomfort. If it persists, talk to your doc about special ointments or antihistamines that are safe for you and your baby.

Your Developing Baby

Your little guy or girl, from this point on, will gain about half a pound every week until birth. This weight will not only result in pinchable cheeks, but will also protect and insulate your baby's organs.
