From now on, you will be thirsty more than usual, as your body will produce more blood- for you and your uterus- and more oil, sweat, and amniotic fluid than the pre-pregnancy days. Just avoid the carbonated beverages and drink plenty of liquids including water, juice, and milk.
Externally, your skin can be dry or oily without pre-causes and the stretch marks will begin to appear. To prevent such stretch marks, you can coconut oil, cocoa butter, or even medical products that will keep the flexible and soft texture of your skin.
