My Pregnancy - Week 38

You may also have been experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions for weeks now, but how do you know when it's time to call your healthcare provider? If there is a change in the frequency of contractions, it's probably a good idea to call. You might also notice some brown, pink, or red discharge signaling the fact that you have lost your mucus plug, and your water may also break. These are all signs that labor is starting and it's a good idea to let your partner and your healthcare provider know.

My Pregnancy - Week 39

The Baby Blues - This is the happiest time of your life, right? This is what you've been waiting for...so why do you feel so sad? You may have heard people mention "The Baby Blues," which refers to a state of heightened emotion after you give birth, in which you may cry more easily than is usual for you, or you may have trouble sleeping, or you may feel irritable, sad, or on edge.

My Pregnancy - Week 40

Labor - Labor is typically broken down into three stages, and begins when you start to have regular contractions, and ends when you pass the placenta.

My Pregnancy - Week 15

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI's) - Pain when urinating, abdominal discomfort, blood in your urine, and a frequent urge to urinate with little production, are all signs of UTI's. UTI's are easier for women to get during pregnancy because important muscles in your urinary tract relax and slow the flow of urine. When this happens, bacteria have a better chance of growing, leading to an infection. If you suspect you may have a urinary tract infection, it is very important to report your symptoms.

My Pregnancy - Week 16

Your baby continues to be busy, growing and developing inside of you. He or she is now about the size of an avocado, measuring approximately four and a half inches and weighing roughly three ounces. His or her heart is now pumping 25 quarts of blood every day, and his or her bladder is emptying every 45 minutes.

My Pregnancy - Week 17

What does it really feel like? The first few times you feel movement, sometimes referred to as quickening, you may be unsure of what you have felt, or pass it off as indigestion. Those early movements are often described as feeling like flutters, bubbles, or popcorn. As you start to feel them more regularly, you'll have a better sense of them and it will become easier to recognize it as your baby moving.

My Pregnancy - Week 18

At this point, you are probably anxiously awaiting an upcoming doctor appointment. Usually, doctors will schedule an ultrasound between 18 and 20 weeks. For some women, this will be the only ultrasound they will have. You may be able to bring your partner, or another person, with you. You also may be able to get photos and/or video from the procedure. Check with your doctor to see what the policies are regarding the ultrasound.

My Pregnancy - Week 19

Are you feeling dizzy? Another cause of dizziness - Your uterus can also place pressure on two large vessels, which supply blood to your body: the aorta and the vena cava. When these vessels are compressed under the pressure of your growing uterus, it slows the circulation of blood throughout your body and can cause hypotension. Lay on your side. Typically, you can relieve this symptom by lying on your side, not your back (and it doesn't matter which side).

My Pregnancy - Week 20

Your baby can also hear sounds. At 20 weeks, he or she can cover his or her ears with his or her hands if the sounds are too loud, and he or she may even "jump" inside your womb if any sounds startle him. The hair on his or her scalp is also growing.

My Pregnancy at Week 14

By week 14, your baby is around the size of a lemon, measuring about three and a half inches and weighing one and a half ounces. Her body also starts to even out this week, as her arms and head are finally proportionate to the rest of her body. Her hands and feet now measure about a half-inch long, and are actively punching and kicking inside you. Don't be alarmed if you can't feel this movement, it's too small for you to feel.

My Pregnancy at Week 13

Your baby is now about the size of a peach, measuring a little less than three inches and weighing approximately a full ounce. The most remarkable thing about week 13 is that his little body is finally starting to catch up to his head in size, as his head now only accounts for one-third of his total size.

My Pregnancy at Week 12

This week, your baby is almost the size of a lime, weighs almost an ounce, and measures almost 2.5 inches. His eyes are now positioned in the front of his face, and his ears are in position on the sides of his head. Most notably, reflexes have begun. Your little one's mouth is making sucking movements, his eye muscles clench, his toes curl, fingers and hands open and close.

My Pregnancy at Week 11

Starting with this week, the baby is now officially called a fetus. Your baby has continued to grow. Now almost two inches long, your little one has been engaged in some heavy acrobatics, kicking, and stretching inside your womb. Remember, even though she is getting bigger, it may be some weeks before you feel her moving around.

My Pregnancy at Week 10

Your baby continues to grow steadily, gaining around half-an-inch in the last week. Now, about the size of a prune, your baby has reached an important developmental milestone. Week 10 is the beginning of the fetal period, in which your baby's organs rapidly mature.

My Pregnancy at Week 9

Your baby has grown in the last week. Now almost an inch long, she is about the size of a grape and weighs less than an ounce. In the coming weeks, your baby will continue to gain weight rapidly, as her basic physiology is finally in place. Her heart has divided into four unique chambers, and her muscles and organs are able to move independently.

My Pregnancy at Week 8

Though you might not feel it, your baby, now about the size of a kidney bean (8-11 mm), is moving inside of you. Your baby's facial features become more obvious this week because lips, tongue, nostrils, and buds for teeth have developed. Arms and legs are growing, elbows and knees develop, and fingers and toes, though still webbed, become visible. Any trace of your baby's "tail" is almost entirely gone.

My Pregnancy at Week 7

By week seven, the embryo one measures approximately one-third of an inch long. Also during week seven, your baby's arms and legs are developing, and teeny, tiny hands and feet are beginning to appear.

My Pregnancy at Week 6

This week, your baby has a distinguishable head and trunk! And on your baby's head are facial features. As early as week six, your baby is beginning to develop facial features with indentations, which will become the eyes, ears, and mouth. The larynx, or voice box, will also begin to form this week.

My Pregnancy at Week 5

Even though this may be the first week a home pregnancy test confirms your pregnancy, it is incredible how many changes your little one has already gone through. By week five, the embryo, now securely nestled in your uterine wall, will begin the neural tube, which will eventually form the spinal cord and the brain, will begin to develop this week. Skin, hair

My Pregnancy at Week 4

Week 4 of pregnancy signals the beginning of the embryonic period, which will continue until week 10. The blastocyst becomes embedded in the uterine wall. At this point, the blastocyst has grown into a disk-like structure, and is two layers thick. These two layers, called the epiblast and the hypoblast, divide the blastocyst into two chambers, the amniotic cavity and the yolk sac. Additionally during this period, your baby's organs will begin to develop.
