Once the euphoria of learning that you’re pregnant passes you might like to know what to expect at each stage. Some women maintain, what is called, a ‘pregnancy journal’. The first stage of pregnancy is marked by nausea, dizzy spells and frequent scuttles to the washroom. You will also crave certain types of food while shunning others. An ultra sound will reveal a flicker- your precious little one’s heartbeat! You will also be able to detect tiny limbs flailing about.
By the second month your baby starts developing its vital organs and also begins to acquire a face. Maintain a healthy diet plan and take regular exercise – on your doctor’s advice, of course. All this is important so that your baby comes out healthy.
By the time you reach the second trimester you would have passed five months in your pregnancy stage. By this time all the annoying symptoms like fatigue and nausea would have practically vanished. But you will start getting back pain and stretch marks on your stomach, breasts and thighs.
Don’t be surprised if you feel ‘butterflies in the stomach’ at this stage. What you are actually experiencing is the movement moving about. An ultra sound will reveal a hand moving or your baby’s mouth opening. How exciting!
The third trimester marks the final stretch. You will find yourself going out of breath while trips to the washroom increase. You will also experience heartburns and your fingers, hands and feet are likely to swell up. Your belly button is likely to stand out at this stage. Sleep might become difficult because the life you are carrying is now as big as a football. When your doctor tells you that your cervix has thinned you know that your due date is near. The excitement’s just beginning!Note: As a pregnant woman, you are specifically warned to seek medical advice prior to initiating any exercise program, diet, or treatment provided by Cryobanks.
