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.

You have every right to take it easy in these last weeks of pregnancy, but keep in mind that keeping up your healthy habits can serve to make you more comfortable. And, staying moderately active and eating right can keep your swelling down, your energy up, and, of course, better equip you for baby’s arrival.

It does, for your personal confidence. If you keep the healthy schedule you've hanged on to until now, you'll trust yourself to keep it after birth, too. I found some online health exercises while I stayed home and worked out everyday, before and after giving birth.

Staying Healthy In Final Weeks of Pregnancy?

It is very important to stay calm and make all the necessary preparations for the postnatal period, washing newborn clothes, towels and bed linen in non-bio detergent is a must for every mother because baby`s skin is very sensible. I learned about this from a patient at incentaHEALTH center, the patient’s daughter gave birth recently and she was so excited to teach her daughter everything about the postnatal period.
