Medical professionals has made it known that, a normal pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks and is grouped into three trimesters.
Symptoms of early pregnancy include the absence of menstrual periods, breast changes, tiredness, nausea, mood swings, or other symptoms. :lol: :lol: :lol:

A pregnancy test measures the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin in the urine or blood.
Symptoms of late pregnancy can include heartburn, difficulty sleeping, swelling of the ankles or fingers, hemorrhoids, and mild contractions. :roll: :roll:

By the end of 37 weeks, a baby is considered full term and its organs are ready to function on their own.
As you near your due date, your baby may turn into a head-down position for birth. Most babies "present" head down. :geek:

Babies at birth typically weigh between 6 pounds 2 ounces and 9 pounds 2 ounces and are 19 to 21 inches long. Most full-term babies fall within these ranges. :o :lol: :lol:

What is the first trimester (week 1-week 12)?
During the first trimester your body undergoes many changes. Hormonal changes affect almost every organ system in your body. These changes can trigger symptoms even in the very first weeks of pregnancy. :) :) :)

Your period stopping is a clear sign that you are pregnant. Other changes may include:
Extreme tiredness
Tender, swollen breasts. Your nipples might also stick out.
Upset stomach with or without throwing up (morning sickness)
Cravings or distaste for certain foods
Mood swings
Constipation (trouble having bowel movements)
Need to pass urine more often
Headache
Heartburn
Weight gain or loss :| :| :| :| :|

As your body changes, you might need to make changes to your daily routine, such as going to bed earlier or eating frequent, small meals. Fortunately, most of these discomforts will go away as your pregnancy progresses. :x

And some women might not feel any discomfort at all! If you have been pregnant before, you might feel differently this time around. Just as each woman is different, so is each pregnancy. ;) :o :o :o

Most women find the second trimester of pregnancy easier than the first. But it is just as important to stay informed about your pregnancy during these months. :arrow: :arrow:

You might notice that symptoms like nausea and fatigue are going away. But other new, more noticeable changes to your body are now happening. Your abdomen will expand as the baby continues to grow. And before this trimester is over, you will feel your baby beginning to move. :P :P
