7 beautiful ways in which pregnancy affects your hormones

"Being pregnant means every day is another day closer to meeting the love of your life." - Unknown


Pregnancy is a transformative journey, and hormones play a key role. Here are 7 ways pregnancy affects your hormones:

1. Estrogen Empowerment

During pregnancy, estrogen levels skyrocket, making you feel like the queen of the hormonal jungle. This hormone not only supports the growth and development of your baby but also enhances blood flow, promotes breast tissue changes, and keeps your skin glowing.

2. Progesterone Power

Ah, progesterone, the guardian of pregnancy. This hormone keeps the uterus in check, preventing premature contractions and maintaining a safe environment for your little one. It also supports the growth of milk-producing glands, preparing your body for the nourishing journey of breastfeeding.

3. HCG

 The Heroic Pregnancy Hormone: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) steals the spotlight during early pregnancy. It's the hormone responsible for those iconic positive pregnancy test results. HCG helps maintain the production of estrogen and progesterone, ensuring a nurturing environment for your baby.

4. Thyroid Tango

Your thyroid gland dances to a different beat during pregnancy. It produces more hormones to support your baby's brain development and regulate your metabolism. This might cause changes in your energy levels, weight, and mood, but worry not, it's all part of the miraculous process.

5. Relaxin, the Pregnancy Limbo Master

 As the name suggests, relaxin does exactly what it says—it relaxes your ligaments and joints. This hormone helps prepare your body for childbirth by loosening your pelvic joints, making way for your little one's grand entrance. Just remember to take it easy on those yoga poses!

6. Oxytocin, the Love Hormone

 Oxytocin is the ultimate love potion coursing through your veins during pregnancy. It's responsible for that intense bond you feel with your baby, triggering feelings of love, trust, and a desire to protect. This hormone also plays a crucial role in initiating labor contractions when the time comes.

7. Emotional Symphony

 Pregnancy hormones can turn you into a walking emotional masterpiece. One minute you're crying over a cute puppy video, and the next you're laughing uncontrollably at a cheesy joke. It's completely normal, my dear mama, as your body goes through this incredible journey, emotions run high, and that's okay.


Embrace the changes, ride the waves, and remember: each hormonal shift is a testament to the incredible power of motherhood. Through this all, Ugees stands close to you! We embrace you through your motherhood.
