      Your weight gain will increase gradually after these 3 months. You may sweat more often due to the increased energy consumption from your body.

      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      Special prenatal examinations are recommended for women aged 35 years in order to exclude any possible genetic defects. These include the nuchal translucency test and maternal serum screening. Consult your gynaecologist to explain the main methods of prenatal diagnosis and an appropriate recommendation.
