Find out what your body is up to in your 10th week of pregnancy
A strange quirk of pregnancy means that your senses are more acute, so you may find that you’ve become extremely sensitive to smells. This can play havoc with your diet if you’re finding yourself suffering from morning sickness. Breakfast smells can be particularly pungent, so ask your partner to refrain from early morning fry-ups.
Queasiness can also make you shy away from exercise and going to the gym. See if your gym will let you freeze your membership for a few weeks, so you can return when the sickness has hopefully subsided.
