Pregnancy Week-by-Week Guide with Everything You Need to Know



Our pregnancy week-by-week section is a special package from PregnancyMama to help women in getting the big picture of each week of the estimated forty pregnancy weeks.

We see Pregnancy as an important event in every woman’s life and often it’s described as a miraculous and wondrous experience. This wonderful experience can’t be better understood without a comprehensive week-by-week pregnancy guide.

Obstetricians, Gynaecologists and Midwives calculate pregnancy not from conception but from the first day of a woman's last menstrual period. It implies that a 6 weeks pregnant Mom is actually in about 4 weeks after conception. On the basis of this timing, pregnancy lasts for an average of 40 weeks although most pregnancies end up either a bit shorter or longer.

When a woman’s pregnancy is confirmed, she must be absolutely elated with pristine euphoria and celebrations with her partner, parents, family and friends. Afterwards she settles down with reality and a burden, in anticipation of the cares and concerns of carrying pregnancy through the 40 weeks marathon. If you’re one or not, these estimated 40 weeks can be uniquely interesting and full of fun.

It’s interesting to know that every pregnant woman gets more confidence to handle all arising challenges, cares and concerns with the help of a good pregnancy week-by-week guide.

Not all of us have the benefit to be tutored on Pregnancy particularly as there are no “almighty rules” to having a baby. You can however count on PregnancyMama to get in-depth information on what to expect throughout the 40 weeks journey, and how to effectively cope with the inevitable physical, emotional and lifestyle changes.

We’ll ensure you don’t miss out on necessary valuable advice and tips on how to handle the best and challenging days from week one to forty, even postpartum.

There are days when a typical expecting mom feels absolutely fine and ecstatic. Then, there are those days when she feels down in the dumps especially when the belly starts growing rapidly after the second trimester.

It’s natural for a pregnant mom to have apprehension about her baby’s growth and well-being or whether she’s doing things right. Some have concerns about the type of exercises they can do at each stage of pregnancy while some others may want to know the type of food they must eat to ensure that the baby grows healthy.

Some wish to know why they are asked to do certain tests and exams such as amniocentesis, while information on what’s necessary to ensure natural childbirth may be the concern of others.
