Month 3 of Pregnancy: What to Expect?

Week 9

You’re at the start of your 3rd month, congratulations! Your baby is growing very quickly right now and so is your belly. The changes may become apparent to everyone around you.

What’s important, your body temperature is higher than before, constantly around 37 °C.

Week 10

One of the most prominent changes is the volume of blood you produce during pregnancy which is about 50 % more than normal. Your uterus grows as well as nourishes your baby and your body has to carry more oxygen to make this possible.

You may find your heart beating faster because of this, but don’t worry, everything’s just fine!

Week 11

You can tell friends and family about your pregnancy at this point because the most critical part of your baby’s organ development is over. From now on, your baby will grow very rapidly, usually doubling in size by the next week.

Your uterus has expanded so much that it can no longer fit into your pelvic area and starts to slowly rise, making your baby bump visible to the world.

Week 12

By the end of the 1st trimester, you will start to feel slightly better as the morning sickness almost always gone at this point and you get your energy back.

Tip for you: Be careful when you move too quickly (for example getting up from a chair). Your blood pressure is changing quickly and you might get dizzy and disoriented.

Week 13

Get used to all the attention, momma! Your belly is getting rounder and everyone can now see that you’re pregnant.

Your baby can already move inside you with its arms and legs but you won’t be able to feel it just yet.
