When you’re pregnant, every stage of your pregnancy will bring something new. You may experience new cravings, new symptoms, or you may begin to feel your baby moving around more or less as he or she continues to grow.
Pregnancy is exciting, but it can be scary at times, especially if you’re not sure what to expect. That’s why Moms Who Think provides a Pregnancy Weeks section on our web site.
We start at the four week mark and take you right through to week thirty nine telling you exactly what to expect at these various stages of your pregnancy.
Of course, no two pregnancies are exactly the same! But our articles will give you a pretty good idea of what you can look forward to every seven days. We talk about how much weight you might have gained and what new symptoms you may be experiencing.
We also talk about how your baby is developing and what you can expect from your health care provider at your next doctor’s visit.
There’s no experience quite like the one you will go through when you are about to have a baby. There is no doubt you will be filled with joy, but you also may have many questions regarding your pregnancy.
Hopefully our week by week guide will give you a better idea of what to expect so you can make it through this time with as few worries as possible. Then, look forward to starting a terrific life with your little bundle of joy.
