Week by Week Pregnancy Guide

Our week by week pregnancy guide is full of expert information about each week and month, including what to expect as your body changes and baby grows.
Week by Week
As exciting as this sounds, the reality of being 1 week pregnant isn't all that wonderful.
It is still not time to get too excited about your pregnancy just yet.
Congratulations, you are now officially pregnant.
It s implantation time! This week the embryo, which is now called a blastocyst, has found its way to the uterus and is looking for a suitable place to nestle in for the next 36 weeks or so.
By the time you are 5 weeks pregnant, you may be getting very suspicious there is something going on.
Month by Month
Whether your home pregnancy test is positive or your doctor has just confirmed it, congratulations - you’re officially pregnant! You are at the beginning of an incredible journey that will see you and your developing baby go through some serious changes.
It's still early days but congratulations on making it to your second month of pregnancy.
You are officially at the end of your first trimester!
Welcome to your second trimester of pregnancy.
This month you'll really start to feel your little one s presence in your uterus.
Trimesters
Congratulations, you're pregnant! If this is your first time, you're in for one hell of a ride!
The first trimester of pregnancy covers between weeks 1-13, or the first three calendar months.
Welcome to your second trimester.
You are probably feeling as if you ve reached a significant milestone by this stage.
It's not uncommon to hear about the fourth trimester. It relates to the baby's care after they're born - from birth until they're three months of age. 
Ultrasounds & Scans
Most women will have at least one pregnancy ultrasound, either in very early stages of their pregnancy or at around 20 weeks of gestation.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to the world of pregnancy ultrasounds.
It s common for women to have a 7 week ultrasound and for many, it s their first real look at their baby.
An 8 week ultrasound can be both exciting and a bit scary.
Every pregnant woman is offered ultrasound scans during pregnancy.
Early Stages of Pregnancy
Being pregnant for the first time is one of the most eye-opening experiences a woman will go through.
Discovering you re pregnant often brings with it a wave of conflicting emotions.
Keeping open lines of communication between you and your midwife will help you to relax and enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible.
There s no time like the present to start getting organised for your new bundle of joy.
Before you even suspect you are pregnant, your body will have switched on changes to support the developing embryo.
