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.

I have 3 girls and 1 one boy. I couldn't believe you're prediction, it said I was having a boy. I had an ultrasound last week, few days before Thanksgiving.....we're having our second boy! Unbelievable, he's definitely a blessing and now we're complete! I even had set my baby registry up with the blue theme, before the ultrasound. Now, isn't that something. Thanks Fortune Baby.
Hi all at Fortune Baby, I had my 22 week scan last week and I would just like to let you know that your gender prediction was CORRECT, my husband and I are over the moon, you predicted that we would have a baby girl and this was confirmed last week, we have two beautiful boys and this new addition will just complete our family, football mad boys for daddy and a little girly girl for mummy. I will definitely recommend your site to others. Thanks once again
Hi I am a customer of yours and just wanted u guys to know that your gender prediction test was in deed correct. I have two boys and one daughter already, so I was hoping on another daughter, I had tried your formula and u guys said I was having a baby boy. I went to others and they all said girl. Well I went for my sonogram at 20 weeks last month, and the baby's legs were crossed, but the technician stated she thinks it is a girl. My boyfriend and I couldn't wait for another sonogram so we went to a 4d independent place and the first thing we saw when she turn the machine on was his legs open, and yes its a BOY! He was excited this is his first son, so I am determined to have a baby girl soon after his delivery so they can be at least a year and a half apart, and I purchased your one year prediction calendar. Good for me that most of next year its all girls, hopefully I will be lucky again next time! Thanks a lot, I will highly recommend u guys to all my friends.
You were right! I had an ultrasound today at 16 weeks and its definatly a BOY! We are so excited we have 3 girls already and this will be our 1st son!!!!!!!!!! so thanks.
