What's New This Week
Watch Your Baby's Growth
Chances are you have no idea you're pregnant yet¿but your body is already hard at work. Watch as the egg undergoes its wondrous transformation to embryo.
Your Changing Body
Can you believe that just a few short weeks ago you were wondering if you were really pregnant? Chances are, by now your body is letting you know loud and clear (and if not now, soon).
Your Developing Baby
By the end of this week your baby will have tripled in size! His heart is now beating with a regular rhythm. It's still too faint to be picked up by your doctor's stethoscope, but if you have an ultrasound at some point over the next few weeks it will probably be visible as a tiny, pulsing dot in the middle of his mini body.
Tip of the Week
Having trouble taking prenatal vitamins? Sometimes the oversize pills are tough to swallow if you're already feeling queasy. Ask your doctor about taking children's chewables.
