What will I look like during the 1st trimester of my pregnancy?

Throughout your pregnancy, you should gain anywhere from 25 to 35 pounds, but much of this weight is gained in the second and third trimester, so you should not notice any significant weight gain in the first. However, by the end of the first trimester, your uterus will outgrow your pelvis and start to move into your abdomen. By the end of the first trimester, your breasts may look noticeably larger, you may notice changes in skin color around your nipples and stretch marks may begin to form on your stomach.
