Changes in Your Body When 14 Weeks Pregnant

During week 14 of pregnancy, your pregnancy hormones should be leveling off, which means that you should be experiencing less nausea, less frequent urination, and less exhaustion.
However, you may be experiencing constipation due to your hormones, which can relax your bowel muscles, causing them to work slower and less efficiently. If constipation becomes a problem, add more fiber to your diet and make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids.
Other changes to your body during week 14 of pregnancy may include the following:
  • The veins on your chest and breasts may become more dilated.
  • The areolas (the darker colored part around your nipple) of your breasts are darkening and growing larger in diameter.
  • Your body is preparing for breastfeeding by growing new milk ducts. As you move through your pregnancy, the increased amounts of progesterone and estrogen in your body may cause your breasts to become larger, heavier, lumpy, and sore. The nipple area may become more sensitive to touch.
From week 14 to the end of pregnancy, you may feel warm -- like a heater.
