What discomforts are common in the 26th week of gestation?

In the 26th week of gestation, it is common for a woman to have frequent urination, as the uterus presses on the bladder due to its growing size. This urge to urinate may even wake the pregnant woman up at night, which can make it even more difficult to get a good night's rest.

However, other possible symptoms that are common in the 26th week of pregnancy include:

  • Pelvic pain.
  • Swelling, especially in legs, feet, ankles and hands.
  • Night cramps and varicose veins in the legs.
  • Stomach acidity and reflux.
  • Increased vaginal discharge.
  • Constipation and hemorrhoids.
  • Stretch marks.
  • Braxton Hicks contractions, different from labor contractions.

In addition, changes in the breast may also be observed, such as an increase in volume and an increase in the size of the areola, which will also be obscured.
