From the moment you see the little plus sign on your home pregnancy test, you start to dream about your bundle of joy. If you want to know when you can gaze into your newborn’s eyes, simply enter the date of your last menstrual period and click “Calculate.”
Your big day is !
That means you're in your trimester.
This is a time of rapid changes for you and your baby. In fact, your body began its transformation even before any tests confirmed you were pregnant. During this period, you will likely experience some highs and lows. But don't worry - these feelings are normal. Just be sure to look to your spouse or a loved one when you need a little support.
If you've been experiencing nausea, the worst of it should be behind you. But other physical changes are on the way, including a growing tummy and larger breasts. You may also notice that you're more energetic. And during this period, you'll be able to discover whether you're having a boy or a girl - or ask your doctor to keep it secret.
During your 3rd trimester, your baby's continued growth may begin to make you uncomfortable. You may also experience some anxiety about the upcoming birth. Finding activities to keep you calm should help. And never forget about the joy your newborn baby will soon bring.Want to learn more?
