Pregnancy Week by Week

In just 40 short weeks, a baby will grow from the size of a tiny seed to the size of a plump watermelon - Won-der-ful!

Pregnancy is divided into three trimesters. Pregnancy lasts for 9 months, the first 3 months is the first trimester, the second period of 3 months is the second trimester while the last 3 months is the third trimester. Get it? We will talk about all three here.

If you have decided to have a baby, the most important thing you can do is to take good care of yourself so you and your baby will be healthy. If you get the proper care and make the right choices you have a very good chance of having a healthy baby.

See a healthcare provider as soon as possible after you find out you're pregnant to begin getting antenatal care. Antenatal care is medical care received during pregnancy. The sooner you start to get care from a healthcare provider, the better the chances that you and your baby will be healthy.
