Pregnancy is often considered a miraculous and life changing event. Undoubtedly as you continue your pregnancy you will have questions about your own growth and development and that…
Congratulations! In roughly nine months, you are going to be a new mother. Although you won’t look pregnant in the first trimester, you will definitely feel it. From morning sickness to fatigue to breast tenderness, the first 13 weeks of pregnancy is often the most challenging. The higher levels of hormones can wreck havoc on your body, your mood, and your life.
Welcome to your second trimester of pregnancy. You are most likely feeling much better now than the first trimester. Your baby is growing quickly, the organs are beginning to function, eyebrows are forming, the skin is covered with vernix, the genitals are develop and fine hair is covering the body. This is the trimester that you will feel your baby move and predict the baby’s gender.
Congratulations! At 28 weeks pregnant, you are into your third and final trimester of pregnancy. You may want to start counting your baby’s kicks. Although it’s not medically necessary for you to count fetal kicks (unless your midwife or doctor has advised you to), it’s a good way to feel more secure in knowing your baby is healthy.
