  2. 2. Main Points • Stages of pregnancy (Trimesters) • What happens during each trimester to both mother and baby • Labor & Delivery
  3. 3. Stages of Pregnancy Pregnancy is broken up into three stages, or trimesters. Each stage consist of 13 weeks plus! • Trimester 1- weeks 0-13 • Trimester 2- weeks 14-27 • Trimester 3- weeks 28-40
  4. 4. 1st trimester (0-13 weeks) Baby- sperm fertilizes the egg in the fallopian tube, then the fertilized egg moves down the fallopian tube and attaches to the uterine wall. All of the major organs and body structures start to develop during the first half of this Trimester. Bones and muscles start to form. The baby is about one ounce and about three inches long at the end of this stage. Mother- hormone changes will start to affect your entire body. You may feel the effects of these changes before you even know you're pregnant. Some women experience the following conditions during the first trimester of pregnancy: morning sickness, weight gain, exhaustion, breast swelling and soreness, cravings for certain foods, mood swings, headaches, the need to urinate more often, and constipation!

  6. 6. 2nd Trimester (14-27 weeks) Baby- Sex organs form. Your doctor may be able to tell if it’s a boy or girl now. The placenta finishes developing. Its eyebrows, eyelashes and fingernails form. Your baby its own unique fingerprint. The baby can swallow, hear and suck his or her thumb. The baby's body will be wrinkly and covered in vernix and lanugo . In girls, all of the eggs will develop in her ovaries. In boys, the testicles will drop down from the abdomen into the scrotum. Your baby will start a regular sleep and wake cycle. You should be able to feel it move around and kick by the middle of this trimester. The baby now weighs a little over two pounds and is about 14 inches long. Mother- Morning sickness and fatigue have often subsided. This is when you start to look pregnant, as a result of your growing baby.

  8. 8. 3rd Trimester (28-40 weeks) Baby-Your baby grows the most during the third trimester. The baby opens its eyes for the first time since the end of the first trimester and can even notice changes in light. The lanugo starts falling off and the skin will be less wrinkled. The baby will move down the uterus into the heads-down position to get ready for delivery. Its taste buds will form and it can tell the difference between sweet and sour tastes. All organs are fully developed .At birth, your baby will be around 20 inches long and weigh between six and nine pounds. Mother- You will become very uncomfortable. Because of your size, you may find it hard to get comfortable and sleep at night. In addition to what you felt during the second trimester, you may also experience: Heartburn, Shortness of breath ,Pre-milk called colostrum leaking from your nipples, and Contractions that may signal real or false labor

  10. 10. Labor & Delivery During labor, you will go through three phases. The phases are: Early phase, active phase, and Transition phase. • Early Phase- regular contractions about every 15 to 20 minutes, increasing to 5-minute intervals later in this phase. Your cervix will dilate to 2 to 3 centimeters and your water will break. • Active Phase- contractions become stronger and more frequent, about 2 to 3 minutes apart and lasting about 45 seconds. your cervix dilates to 4 to 7 centimeters. The pain also intensifies • Transition Phase- contractions are coming fast and furious now—some less than a minute apart—and are lasting a minute or more. Your cervix dilates to 8 to 10 centimeters, its maximum width. You may be nauseous, have the chills, the sweats or shakes. You'll probably feel an incredible urge to push during this time. • Delivery-You are fully dilated and the baby's head becomes visible to your hospital team. You can push ; each contraction will last about 60 to 90 seconds. Once the baby crowns (the top of the head shows). You continue pushing until the baby is out! The doctors will then get the After birth out. Daddy will also cut the cord if desired!
