9 Weeks Pregnant

You are in your third month now. You and your baby has finally touched the milestone, he/she is no longer an embryo – it is a fetus now. These two stages are crucial phases of baby’s development. It is the right time for future parents to start reading maternity books and creating a budget to handle the expenses of their little angel.

What’s going on in my body?

As the baby has become a fetus, its growth rate has increased, which means that it is taking the majority of nutrition and vitamins consumed by the mother. A mother needs to put extra emphasis on her diet and ensure that she does not consume any food item that could damage her or her baby’s health.

The mother should start gaining weight during the 9th week. They should increase their diet and avoid starving themselves, cause they have another human to feed inside them.
