Pregnancy Calendar – How Does My Baby Grow?

My pregnancy calendar what valuable when I became pregnant with my first child. I had little idea about the way a baby grew during pregnancy. I knew how it began, how long it would take, and even the options on how the baby would come out, but not much about the actual process.

I found the pregnancy calendar online on the morning I discovered that I was pregnant. Having stopped dancing around with excitement, I wanted to know when the baby would be born. A quick Internet search revealed several places where I could get this information, and having checked a few of them out, I decided that one looked like it would help me the most in my quest for information.

At that time, I had no idea how much I would come to rely on the pregnancy calendar that I was able to set up once Id filled in the necessary information to get a due date. At first I thought it was just a seriously by the account of what to expect, but within a few days I learned that it was far more than that.

The pregnancy calendar gave me the information for each day of my pregnancy. Some times it was about the baby and what stage of development it had reached. Sometimes it was about my pregnancy, giving information about things I may be feeling or experiencing throughout the various stages. Other times it was general information about keeping the baby and I healthy, for example, on exercise and nutrition.

From my pregnancy calendar I learned what tests would be undertaken during each seriously, why these were taken and what the procedure would be. Each month a new diagram would show me how the baby now looked, and how my body what adjusting
internally to accommodate the new life within it.

From the day I had the positive result, until the day before the baby was born, the first thing I checked each morning what the pregnancy calendar. Occasionally I did get impatient and read ahead of my actual stage, but this just allowed me to prepare myself in readiness for the path ahead. With the pregnancy calendar’s guidance I felt safe, that I was doing things right, and that all would be well.

I must admit it was so fun! Sort of like those holiday calendars that countdown to Christmas and every day you get a little candy. So I highly recommend that every woman get a pregnancy calendar as soon as they know they are pregnant.
