Peak of hormones and heaviness in the legs

At the 6th week of pregnancy (= 8th week of amenorrhoea), the hormone level is at its maximum ... but not your form. Nausea, dizziness, constipation ... A little courage, it's a bad time to pass!

By the sixth week of pregnancy, the level of hormone is at its maximum, causing the batch of inconveniences already experienced in previous weeks. Nausea, dizziness, constipation can punctuate your days. To top it off, the poor blood circulation associated with the increase in blood volume that irrigates your body causes heaviness in your legs.

Also, your uterus grows and presses on your bladder, causing frequent urges to urinate. These should accompany you more or less throughout your pregnancy, as you get used to it today!
