hello and welcome to healthcare magic.
As the pregnancy develops you will develop frequent urge to urinate because of the enlarging uterus pressing on the urinary bladder more so in the first trimester and third trimester, and your breasts will enlarge so as to feed the baby later on which is hormonal, in the first trimester you may experience nausea and vomiting generally termed morning sickness, also you may develop stretch marks termed linea nigra.there may also be mood swings but nothing to worry about.
take care.

There is not imbalance normally. Hormaonal imbalance disturbes pregnancy. All hormones in a balanced way leads to normal outcome of pregnancy.
The LH - leutinizing hormone for frst 2 - 4 weeks raised for maintaining leutein phase.
hCG levels raised throughout pregnancy.
Oestrogen and progesterone also raised. They necessary for sex developement of baby, maintainance of pregnancy.
Insulin and cortisol important for baby growth. Thus almost all hormones level increased in a pregnant women.
All in balanced way..
Have a Healthful Day..

There are a number of hormonal imbalances that could be seen during pregnancy (most commonly thyroid dysfunction, gestational diabestes). Please mention the symptoms you have and your duration of pregnancy, and age.

welcome to healthcaremagic
Progesterone sustains the endometrium, so it can receive a fertilized egg if pregnancy occurs. If there's no pregnancy, then the body stops producing both hormones, and menstruation occurs.
You may have to urinate more often because of increased hormonal changes, also your enlarging uterus presses against your bladder.
Your breasts will probably swell and be tender. They may tingle, throb or hurt. Your nipples and the area around them (areola) may feel more sensation and may become darker and broader. Your milk glands begin to develop. Because of an increased blood supply to your breasts, veins will become more prominent.
