Gingivitis: Pregnant women can develop swollen gum that bleed easily. It is called pregnancy gingivitis. Warm salt water rinses daily can help.

A 41-year-old member asked:

How can I expect my breasts to change in pregnancy?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Pam Yoder
Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Prep for lactation: In the first weeks of pregnancy there is breast tenderness or fullness, enlargement and prominence of the glands of the areola (the area around the nipple), darkening of the areola. Later in pregnancy the breasts enlarge. All of these occur in preparation for feeding the newborn. Every pregnant woman should consider these as welcome changes and an opportunity to provide her baby nourishment.
