Pregnancy Symptoms by Weeks - First Trimester Pregnancy symptoms
First Trimester Pregnancy symptoms. There are various symptoms associated with the weeks during the first trimester and unfortunately approximately 70% of all pregnant women suffer from morning sickness or feelings of nausea at this time. Other symptoms during this early stage of pregnancy include fatigue, swollen breasts, darkening of areolas (the skin around the nipples), headache, backache and frequent urination. Cravings for unusual food can also occur during the early stages. The period of the first trimester carries the highest risk of miscarriage.

Pregnancy Symptoms by Weeks - Second Trimester Pregnancy symptoms
Second Trimester Pregnancy symptoms. Many of the early symptoms of pregnancy will have subsided by this stage and the morning sickness or feelings of nausea would have eased off. This is the time when you will have a feeling of well-being. However, some symptoms are reported during the Second trimester which include heartburn, backache, constipation, piles, leg cramps and Braxton Hicks contractions. The pregnant woman's belly is usually very upright during this stage of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Symptoms by Weeks - Third Trimester Pregnancy symptoms
From the beginning of the third trimester the baby is able to survive, with or without medical help, outside of the womb. The most weight gain will be made during this trimester and the baby can gain up to 28g per day. The shape of your belly changes as the belly drops due to the baby turning in a downward position ready for birth. Your belly will drop down quite low and you will be able to lift your belly up and down! Symptoms during this period of your pregnancy include the navel sometimes becoming convex and "popping" out due to the expanding abdomen. Other symptoms include weak bladder control, heartburn and back-ache.
