PREGNANCY CALENDAR




Finding out you are pregnant can be an exciting time, and if you have never been pregnant before you are in for many changes. Many women like to know what is going on from week to week with their baby and their bodies and using a pregnancy calendar can help you keep up with what is going on. When you start using a pregnancy calendar, you will need to know one of three things: your due date, first day of your last period, or the date of conception. The calendar will take this information and calculate your pregnancy and will come up with a calendar that will show you what is happening in your body each week. This is a great way to see how your baby develops and to keep track of important times during your pregnancy. Often there are specific tips given as well that will improve your pregnancy and the health of your unborn baby.

It can be exciting to have your own pregnancy calendar to refer to as you go through your pregnancy. Often there are many changes that are going on in your body and usually one of these calendars will explain the changes you are feeling, which can help you feel reassured that these changes are normal. These calendars will help keep you up to date on what is going on with your baby as well. Week by week you will find out what part of your baby is developing. You will find out when your baby’s heart starts to beat and when you can hear it, which can be a very exciting time. Often there will be pictures that allow you to see what your baby looks like at that time as well. It can be exciting to see when your baby is starting to develop hands and fingers as well as little toes.

Often these pregnancy calendars will provide you with helpful tips and stories from other mothers as well. You can read about ways to deal with morning sickness and things you should avoid eating or taking during pregnancy. When you think sure you are the only mom going through certain problems, you will be assured that it is normal and other moms have gone through the same thing. Your pregnancy calendar will be with you all the way from the beginning to the very end. Often the calendar will provide you with signs to watch for when you are nearing your due date. Topics will help you know what to expect when your water breaks and how to know when the contractions are the real labor ones. Most calendars will also go on through the first few weeks of your baby’s life as well, helping you to know what is going on with your newborn and how you can properly care for him or her.

Using a pregnancy calendar can be a great way to get more excitement out of your pregnancy. This way you will be informed on what is going on in your body and in your baby’s as well. Information can help you be less stressed out and will make for a more relaxed pregnancy all around.
