  • Your pregnant body

    You may be feeling queasy and exhausted, but your skin may be telling a different story. The hormones racing around your body can make your skin much softer and increased blood flow may give you more colour in your face. But it’s not all joy – the increase in hormones can also give you pimples and even acne!

    Help to quell any spot outbreak by drinking plenty of water and cutting down any fat in your diet. Talk to your doctor before you use any over-the-counter spot creams, to make sure the ingredients are safe during pregnancy.

  • What should you be doing this week?

    It’s very common to feel lightheaded in the early weeks of pregnancy due to your increased blood circulation. If you have low blood sugar, this can also make you feel a bit dizzy. Make sure you carry around healthy snacks with you, such as fruit or wheat crackers, so you can boost your sugar levels when needed. Also, try not to stand up too quickly if you’ve been lying or sitting down.

    The good news is that you get free visits to the dentist while you’re pregnant so book yourself an appointment asap. Don’t forget to tell your dentist that you’re pregnant so that you get the correct treatment.
