Common problems in pregnancy

Around week 20 you might start to show that so-called pregnancy glow. However, even if you are experiencing a healthy, and trouble-free pregnancy, there are minor things that can affect you.

More serious complications

Changes in your body because of pregnancy can lead to minor health problems such as backache or varicose veins.
