What happens during each
stage of my pregnancy?

First trimester –
Conception to week 12

During your first trimester your body is going
through huge changes. You may feel your body
shape begin to change towards the end of the
first trimester but long before this you may start
to feel your muscles begin to stretch in preparation
to accommodate your rapidly growing baby.

Many women start to feel sick during the first few
weeks of pregnancy and for many it can go on quite
a few weeks. Some women find ginger helps to alleviate
the nausea, why not try a cup of herbal ginger tea first thing in the morning.

It is important that you book with the
One to One service as early in pregnancy
as possible so that your midwife
can discuss all the screening tests
available to you and that you have time to look through the information and consent to the tests that you want.
