Now you’re pregnant, you’ll see your doctor regularly for antenatal care – regular check-ups to make sure you and your baby are healthy. Don’t forget to sign up for birthing classes so you’re ready for the big day.
From conception to 13 weeks
Your baby transforms from a tiny little ball of cells implanted on the wall of your uterus into a foetus that looks more like a miniature person. Your body grows placenta to filter oxygen and nourishment to your baby. The glands and ducts in your breasts develop to provide milk for your baby after birth.
From 14 to 27 weeks
Your baby’s organs begin to develop and mature. In this trimester most women feel great energy, strength, and happiness. Morning sickness usually decreases, and your pregnancy is starting to show.
From 28 weeks to your delivery
Your baby’s skin starts to smooth out as its body (and yours) begins to fill out. The size of your baby may produce a little discomfort such as backache, indigestion and pressure on your bladder, but soon will be relieved when your new family member arrives.
