My Body – Pregnancy Week 7Brought to you by
You may feel like you are developing a split personality. Fluctuating hormones in pregnancy are responsible for these changing emotions. You can also thank these fluctuating hormones for your tender and swollen breasts, and any acne breakouts you may experience.
