The First Trimester
Congratulations! By now you’ve gotten the precious confirmation of a positive pregnancy test and possibly the not-so-precious morning sickness. During this trimester, your baby grows faster than at any other time. By six weeks, a heartbeat can usually be heard and by the end of week 12, your baby’s bones, muscles and all the organs of the body have formed. At this point, your baby looks like a tiny human being and is now called a fetus. He or she will even be practising swallowing!
