|First trimester of pregnancy |
Week by week fetal development
Our pregnancy calendar will show your baby's development during your first trimester of pregnancy
First trimester of pregnancy
1st Trimester Duration: Weeks 1 through Week 13
During the first six weeks, you may not feel any different. In fact, you probably will not know for sure until you miss your period. Then you may feel nauseous and fatigued. During the seventh week, the baby's development begins. He or she will begin growing eyes, ears, nose, heart and other organs. By the eighth week, you will be able to hear the baby's heart by ultrasound.
Did you know that you can find out the gender of your baby as early as you take a pregnancy test?
During week nine, the baby will develop bones, and arms and legs will take shape. At this time, feet and hands will be webbed. By the end of the tenth week, the baby will be small but fully developed. You may then experience more nausea and perhaps heartburn. During weeks 12 and 13, your baby grows quickly in size. Your fatigue may increase, and you may require more intake of food. You can now determine its sex through a sonogram, and see it for the first time at the doctor's office. As the first trimester ends, so does the dizziness, nausea and fatigue. Some women still experience nausea and heartburn going to the second trimesterLearn about the second or third trimester in my pregnancy
Can you fly during first trimester?
It is best to always ask your doctor if it's ok for you to air travel during your first trimester. Women that have medical complications are not recommended to fly since there might be an increased chance of having a miscarriage.
First trimester nuchal translucency
Nuchal translucency scan is done between 11 and 14 weeks of pregnancy to help your doctor assess the baby's risk of having Down syndrome and some other chromosomal abnormalities.
Spotting during first trimester
Some women may experience cramps and some spotting during their first trimester which is very common. However, if there is a lot of bleeding, then you should see your doctor to make sure that everything is going well with your pregnancy. Bleeding can also be a sign of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.
Effects of smoking first trimester
Women should avoid smoking during pregnancy. Some serious effects of smoking during pregnancy are the following: miscarriage, low birth weight, congenital heart defects, sudden infant death syndrome.
Sex during first trimester
It is safe to have sex during your first trimester unless you are told otherwise by your doctor. Sex during early pregnancy can be a wonderful experience for most couples.

Your gender predictor was also correct for my second child." read more...
If this is an accurate gender result I will be very happy as I already have two girls and badly wanted a boy when I had my second child. You have now given me something to look forward to. Thank you very much A very happy customer
Oh my gosh! You were right! I took your baby gender predictor test about 2 months ago and it said that I was having a girl, Nobody believed me and today I went for my 20 week ultrasound and the tech told me that I was having a girl. I'm so excited and I want to thank you!!!!!
On Nov. 18, 2006 I took your baby gender prediction test, even though I was extremely skeptical. You said that we were having a girl (we already have 3 boys) and I figured we were more likely to have another boy. I did not want to get my hopes up. On Nov. 27th and again on Jan. 24, 2007 I had an ultrasound that said we are definitely having a GIRL!! I was so amazed that you were correct so early in the game! Thanks and I will recommend your site to others!
Just wanted to send an e-mail - to let you know that your gender predictors were correct. I still have a hard time believing it's true that I am having a girl after having three beautiful blonde haired boys ages 4, 2, and 1. When my prediction last month from Fortune Baby said I was having a girl - I was hopeful but thought in the back of my mind that this baby will probably be a boy as well. That would have been fine since all anyone can really ask for is a healthy child. Although, I have always longed for a daughter and knew this pregnancy would be my last since I just turned 37. So - I found out this week at my 18 week ultrasound that I am in fact having a baby girl. I am giddy and totally over the moon. This is the best birthday present I could ever ask for. Thank you so much Fortune Baby! I feel so completely blessed and happy!
