For most women, pregnancy marks the beginning of one of the most profound life changing experiences they will ever have. Just relax and enjoy your growing baby and get ready for the ride of your life!
During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes to accommodate the baby growing inside you. Your body is your baby’s home for the next nine months and as your baby grows your body will grow and change to accommodate this new life. Pregnancy is physically demanding and often an extremely emotional time in a woman’s life. So make sure you get plenty of rest, make time to exercise, have regular ante-natal checkups and look after your increased nutritional needs including taking a nutritional supplement such as MamaCare.
Pregnancy is usually broken up into 3 stages known as the first, second and third trimester. Each trimester lasts approximately 3 months and has different characteristics.
During the first 14 weeks of pregnancy (the first trimester), your body will undergo many changes as it begins to support your growing baby. Your period stopping is a clear sign that you are pregnant. Other changes may include extreme tiredness, breast changes, morning sickness and food cravings.
