Pregnancy is an exciting time full of new experiences and the building anticipation of waiting to meet your new bundle of joy. Pregnancy can also be confusing, and a little intimidating, and no one understands that better than our teams at St. Luke’s Health Family Birthing Centers. We have the resources, knowledge, and care to support you throughout your pregnancy. Read on to learn about what each trimester has in store for you.
The first trimester of pregnancy is from week 1 until the end of week 13 (months 1 through 3). The male genes will determine whether the baby will be a boy or a girl. At 6 to 8 weeks, the eyes and face will be formed, and the heartbeat can be seen on ultrasound. At the end of 12 weeks, all the baby's organs will be formed.
