First Trimester

Positive Pregnancy test! Now what?

Many women start to feel early pregnancy symptoms before feel baby movements (kicking).

Sensitive breasts, fatigue, frequent urination, nausea, mood swings are some of the most common early symptoms of pregnancy.

During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy the embryo grows very quickly and constantly moving.

The heart is beating around the 6th week of gestation, despite the fact that sometimes the ultrasound detects the heartbeats later due to the location of baby.


First month: In this stage the heart, the digestive system and the neural tube are forming.

Second month: The eyes, the nose, the ears and the tongue are taking shape.

Third month: In this stage the arms, legs and most organs are fully formed.


At the first trimester the fetus’s major body organs are forming and for this reason the baby is most vulnerable. It is vital to avoid drugs, tobacco, alcohol and few foods that may disturb the organogenesis in the developing embryo.
