The Beginning Of An Epic Journey
Your Pregnancy 0-8 Weeks
The first day of your last period is where the magical journey begins and your little miracle is on it’s way. After 3 weeks from that day, the egg should be fertilized and slowly making it’s way through the fallopian tube to get to the womb. From this point up to about 8 weeks you might start to spot your early pregnancy symptoms.
Your Pregnancy 9-12 Weeks
Baby’s face gradually taking shape now and the eyes starting to have some colour in them. You are ecstatically happy despite the fact that you might still feel sick and tired, the good news that the end for most of these discomforts could be in sight for many women.
Your Pregnancy 13-16 Weeks
Baby is about 85mm long by now from the top of his head to his bottom. You should start to feel less tired and any sick feeling that you have been having should start to go now.
Your Pregnancy 17-20 Weeks
Your Pregnancy 21-24 Weeks
This is the stage where your baby will surpass the weight of the placenta, although the placenta will keep growing but at a rate slower than the growth of your baby. From now on your tummy will start to grow bigger faster, and you’ll start to look pregnant. At week 24 babies could survive a premature birth.
Your Pregnancy 25-28 Weeks
During this period your baby might start to become adorably nuisance. He/she will start a routine of their own, waking, sleeping and of course kicking. They might start kicking while you sleep.
Your Pregnancy 29-32 Weeks
Your Pregnancy 33-36 Weeks
Although your little miracle’s bones are starting to harden now his skull will stay soft, just to make it easier to come through when the moment of arrival is happening.
Your Pregnancy 37-40 Weeks
