Information on pregnancy week by week

In the past weeks, your sea-monkey has been very curled up with their head and tail in close proximity, but this week their trunk and neck are beginning to grow and straighten as their tail recedes into its resting position in the back.
Even though your little one is only 6 weeks old, they're already capable of demonstrating reflex responses to touch! If you're like most pregnant women, you'll be feeling the typical oh-so-fun nausea kicking in some time this week. You're more likely to end up with morning sickness if you're carrying twins (or more!), or have experienced it in an earlier pregnancy. Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP) or "morning sickness" is observed in up to 80% of pregnant women, to a greater or lesser extent.
Your astonishingly tiny baby has been growing as fast as possible, almost doubling in size in the past three weeks, which they'll re-do within the next three weeks!
Using Doppler technology, you can hear their tiny rapid fetal heartbeats this week (145-165 beats per minute!). And the final shiny gold star on their fetal behavior chart for the week: your little scrapper has already developed defense mechanisms to protect them on reflex!
No more "Sorry, I'm pregnant and insane because the placenta hasn't started doing its job yet" as an excuse after you've verbally eviscerated the poor bag boy at the grocery store.

An hour of exercise per day during pregnancy (skip the skiing and contact sports) can have a huge range of benefits including: faster recovery from birth, a calmer & healthier baby, decreased risk of getting diabetes, easier labor, fewer pregnancy symptoms such as fatigue, back ache, constipation, and hemorrhoids, and (the clincher) you’ve got less weight to lose after you've given birth. Even more exciting - your alien is some variation on a boy or a girl at this point, although their genitals won't be visible enough to determine which color cigars you're going to buy until around the 16th week. If your erratic mood swings haven't clued you in, your hormones are still out of whack because the placenta won't take over hormone production for another couple of weeks.
Even though there's no bi-weekly paycheck, pregnancy is hard work for your body and your emotional well-being, which basically means you need to focus on getting clean healthy fuel and positive emotional energy flowing into your body to provide your baby with the safest strongest and happiest home possible. Despite the common practice of avoiding hair coloring treatments during pregnancy, medical experts agree it's completely safe to color your hair after your first trimester.
And when it comes to baby at 17 weeks in womb, there some interesting things are happening.
The same lame symptom train has arrived in Puke Town for up to 80% of pregnant women this week!To lessen your symptoms, buckle down and focus on cleaning up your diet.
Also, if you've ever experienced nausea or vomiting with birth control pills, then you can expect to have morning sickness with this pregnancy (and hopefully be pleasantly surprised when you don't!). Typically, NVP is limited to the first 7 to 12 weeks of pregnancy, although about 20% of women experience NVP for a longer period of time.

Your baby's placenta is FINALLY able to begin managing your child's hormone production, taking the increased and oh-so-marvelous burden off of you!No more "Sorry, I'm pregnant and insane because the placenta hasn't started doing its job yet" as an excuse after you've verbally eviscerated the poor bag boy at the grocery store.
Your heart needs to be strong for the upcoming trimesters to avoid Pre-eclampsia (aka dangerously high blood pressure during pregnancy)!Although your body might seem a little boring right now, you can expect the creeping-up-effect of weight gain as you will gain roughly 1-2 lbs per week. Baby will pickup weight this week and will weighing double the weight that the baby was two week earlier. All material provided on this website is provided for informational or educational purposes only. There are always a handful of women who are officially morning-sickness late-bloomers with two weeks more to go before the nausea sets in.
For those of you without morning sickness: bask in the fact you're just one of the lucky 20% of pregnant women who never actually experience morning sickness, you lucky non-puker, you!
