Pregnancy Week 17: Signs And Symptoms

Your body’s fluid volumes are now increasing and this makes you feel hot, a lot! Many pregnant women find that they sweat much more than normal around this time. Take frequent showers to feel fresh and wear cotton clothes to feel more comfortable and allow the skin to breathe.

You might find yourself sniffling all the time. This is very common as your nasal passages may feel constantly blocked.

It is also a good time to get an eye checkup done, since pregnancy hormones may increase your vision number by half a point. If you are finding it difficult to read fine print or are experiencing blurry vision, then visit the eye doctor to rule out a number change.
