Weeks After Conception
Please keep in mind that this information is approximate. Each pregnancy is different and growth rates vary. If you have any questions, please check with your care provider.
Ideas for Partners:
As your baby's bones harden and grow, your calcium needs are even greater. Be sure your diet is adequate in calcium, protein, iron and folic acid
Multiples: If you haven't yet, be sure to have your pediatrician picked out. If the babies come early, you don't want to be left with lots of interview appointments but no doctor. Have you packed your hospital bag yet?
|It's the third trimester and now, more than ever, Mom needs you. She may complain a lot with the growing discomforts of pregnancy. Listen to her with your undivided attention. Help her relax in the evening by rubbing her back and feet. We've talked about this in previous weeks but Mom just needs you to be there for her. As simple as this sounds, it can be difficult at times. Remember that doing what you can for Mom is also your first parenting steps for your child.|
We can't give our children the future, strive though we may to make it secure. But we can give them the present. ~Kathleen Norris|
