Pregnancy stages are broken up into three trimesters: first trimester, second trimester and the third trimester.

When you find out your pregnant it's such an exciting time in your life, but it's even more exciting to know what's actually going on 'inside' of your body. You'll want to know what to expect during this happy time.

Nutrition during pregnancy is very important for the health of the mommy-to-be and also the unborn baby. Your body knows what to do to nourish your baby...so feed your body good and pass it on!!

You may want to keep a pregnancy journal. It will be fun to look back and remember what you went through during your pregnancy stages.



First Trimester

The first three months of your pregnancy is considered to be the first trimester, weeks 1-13.

During this time the baby is called an embryo. The embryo undergoes tremendous growth and many changes during this period. This is also the most critical time in a pregnancy as most miscarriages happen during this stage.... continue


Second Trimester

The next three months of your pregnancy is called the second trimester, weeks 14-26. As you come into the second trimester, many of the early pregnancy symptoms may lighten up or even better, go away.

The second trimester is considered to be the easiest stage of pregnancy because most women will start to regain some of their energy and not feel as sick....continue


Third Trimester

The last three months are called the third trimester, weeks 27-40. This is the final stage of your pregnancy.

Sometimes it can feel like it took FOREVER to get here, but it's here and your baby is almost ready to be in your arms!

Your belly is really big by now and you have to urinate even more now thanks to the uterus sitting on top of your bladder....continue
