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
You might not have a hankering for pickles and ice cream, but pregnancy cravings could be wreaking havoc on your healthy eating plan. Yes, you are eating for two, but you really only need about an extra 300 calories per day (or 600 if you're expecting twins) to nourish your baby-to-be.
Your Developing Baby
Your baby's growth spurt continues: In the last two weeks he has quadrupled in size. As he gets bigger, his delicate facial features are becoming more refined, with his ears, upper lip and the teeny tip of his nose all clearly visible.
Tip of the Week
Do something for yourself this week! It's easy to put all the focus on your baby these days -- and friends and family are probably doing the same thing. Indulge in some Me time before your baby arrives -- get a pedicure, immerse yourself in a good book, or take your dog for a long walk.
