Hi! Iím becoming worried because of changes occurring in my body now. I am 2 months pregnant and I donít know if the changes that are happening are normal or not. I have changes in my mood. I got mad easily, feel irritated sometimes. I have lots of cravings with many different foods to eat. There are hobbies that I want to do before but now, Iím irritated to do it. I know changes are normal in pregnancy, but can you tell me when can I consider it as an abnormal change? Please help me through giving some advice. It would really be a great help. Thanks a lot!
