It’s a big change in your life, and a lot of things are going to happen to your body. Knowing more about it can help you prepare.
Pregnancy happens in 3 stages called trimesters:
- In the first trimester (first 12 weeks), you might feel sick, tired or emotional sometimes.
- In the second trimester (the next 15 weeks), you might feel healthier and stronger. You’ll probably start to see your stomach getting bigger and feel your baby kicking.
- In the third trimester (everything from the 28th week), your baby gets much bigger, so your body has to make room for it. That means sometimes you might feel sore, faint or moody.
It is very important to visit your nurse or doctor at every scheduled visit so they can keep checking up on you and your baby’s health. Remember to ask your doctor anything you’re not sure of or are scared of.
