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.

The baby’s body and head are close to being in proportion. Have you started any exercise yet? If not this could be a good time to start exercise. The rewards outweigh the effort.

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.

  1. It’s amazing how fast that little body grows and to think your body is making it grow. It makes every little thing you do while you’re pregnant, how you eat and how you exercise, that more important. What an exciting journey.

    1. Hi Jaime

  2. Hi, Rima. I had experienced pregnancy 5 times and have four daughters. Pregnancy is a very fragile condition. We women bear a very big responsibility to be the mothers. It started since we were pregnant until forever. Pregnancy is not a normal condition. So don’t forget that we bring the baby in the uterus. If there any disturbances in the pregnancy period for example the bleeding or placenta previa, that will affect our children’s intelligence. The birth process also very important to be kept. Better we go to the hospital earlier than be late and regret it for our life time. It is okay to ask help from others in our pregnancy period. That is not a spoiled attitude. We need the help. Don’t be too tired. Too tired can cause unwanted contraction. It can cause the bleeding. Avoid unnecessary travelling. That is very risky because of the shocking vehicle can harm the baby in the womb.

    1. Hi Melani,

      I absolutely think that you are a very lucky woman to have been through pregnancy 5 times. It all add up to our life experiences whether it was smooth and trouble free or otherwise.
      Pregnancy is a fragile condition but by no means that doesn’t make it less miraculous. It is filled with discomforts and hazards but at the same time it is full of joy and great expectations; you just have to talk to women who for whatever reason cannot get pregnant and you’ll realize how blessed you have been. Mumandbabies.com is a place where hopefully every mother will find the help and advise that will make her journey less uncomfortable and full of health, joy and pure magic.

      Many thanks for sharing your thoughts/feelings about it. I really appreciate it.

      Have a great day.

      Rima
