Pregnancy Week by Week

Get a window on what’s happening in your pregnancy, week by week. From week four to week 42, your baby is experiencing a miraculous transformation from a clump of cells to a fully formed (and totally cute) newborn. Just imagine, as early as five weeks, your baby is already starting to form major organs (heart, stomach, liver, and kidneys) and systems (digestive, circulatory, nervous). By eight weeks, your raspberry-sized womb-mate is moving her arms and legs. At the beginning of your second trimester (week 14), your wee one is sucking his thumb. By week 28, the first week of the third trimester, baby (now as big as an eggplant) is prepping for breathing, developing his eyesight and packing on pounds in anticipation of life outside the womb. Each week is a new miracle. Less miraculous is how a mom-to-be may feel. Pregnancy Week-by-Week charts your baby’s development but also lets mom know what she might be feeling during each week of her pregnancy. Pregnancy week by Week includes everything mom needs to know to feel a sense of control over her pregnancy. Each week offers a complete guide to what you might feel, your must-do’s, your nice-to do’s, and answers and advice on everything pregnancy-related. Plus each week’s guide offers tips on maintaining a healthy and comfortable pregnancy from strategies on coping with pregnancy symptoms (morning sickness anyone?) to ideas for healthy eating, and pointers on talking to your OB. Let us guide you along your pregnancy, week by week.

Do I need to update my estate plan now that I’m pregnant?

My husband and I created an estate plan when we got married. Do I need to update it again now that we’re having a baby? How often should we be updating it?

Absolutely! There’s no point in having an outdated will, or worse, no will at all, especially now that having a baby pretty much changes everything. In fact, any big life change, like getting married or divorced, inheriting assets, or acquiring or selling new property, and any changes to applicable laws are good reasons to update your estate plan -- which consists of your will, trust and guardianship documents -- or to create them if you don’t already have them! You’ll want to make sure baby is cared for in the event of your death (he has a guardian and money) and that your property passes on to the right person. Review your plan periodically to make sure it continues to meet your family’s needs. As your family changes, the size of your estate and your goals will also change, requiring you to revise your plan. That’s why you should try to find an attorney who has a maintenance program -- that means they’ll provide you with legal updates and allow you to make amendments to your existing estate plan whenever a life-changing event happens. If you do choose an attorney who offers a maintenance program, be sure to participate in it!

Do I need to update my estate plan now that I’m pregnant?

You need to be as prepared as possible. Unfortunately my husband passed away suddenly a month ago and I am 5 months pregnant with our first baby. Talk about life changing! Any advanced preparations you can make the better..with and without children.

Do I need to update my estate plan now that I’m pregnant?

I've been through this situation and it was a bit more difficult for me, since I'm an immigrant, because my husband and I needed investor visas in order to make an investment. The answer is yes, change the estate plan, because the baby must be included in all of your life aspects.

Do I need to update my estate plan now that I’m pregnant?

If I'm sure about performing an action this would be it. Don't do it by yourself, though, if you don't understand all the clauses and all that an estate property is implying. Before I got my plan done, I asked a bankruptcy attorney San Antonio has about the risks of completing something online. You should think that even though there are more money spent now, they will be well spent.
