When entering pregnancy, surely you will be very careful in carrying out activities. In fact, there are those who reduce the activity so that the pregnancy is not disturbed.

1. The belly of a pregnant woman is depressed during the first trimester
In the beginning of pregnancy, the walls of the uterus have begun to thicken and this will protect the fetus from pressure. In addition, the pelvic bone is also one of the safeguards when you are in the first trimester. The pelvic bone is quite hard, so it can protect the small fetus from pressure.
2. Stomach of pregnant women is depressed during the second and third trimesters
Many consider the older the pregnancy, the more risky and must be extra careful. Actually this is not entirely wrong, you really need to be more vigilant.
