Can snoring hurt my baby?
Scientists found women who snored in their sleep three or more nights a week had a higher risk of poor delivery outcomes, including smaller babies and Caesarean births. Chronic snorers, who snored both before and during pregnancy, were two-thirds more likely to have a baby whose weight was in the bottom 10%.
When does pregnancy line on stomach appear?

How can you tell if its a boy or girl by the belly?
The truth: How you carry your pregnancy — both the size and shape of your belly — has to do with a number of factors… none of which indicate the sex of your baby. If this is your first pregnancy or if you have strong abdominal muscles, you may carry your baby higher because the abdominal wall isn’t as stretched.
How many hours should a pregnant woman sleep a day?
