Conception and Birth

A quick glance at your baby’s development and prenatal care

Getting Pregnant

We know that many pregnancies are a surprise while others have been planned for years. If you are planning on getting pregnant in the near future, we recommend scheduling an appointment to discuss with us any medical issues you might have. Also, we recommend starting prenatal vitamins before you ever become pregnant. Having enough folic acid in your system before conceiving will help get your baby off to its very best start!

Women are most likely to conceive 10-17 days after their period begins. It is best to have frequent intercourse during this week in order to conceive. It is normal to take up to 6 months to conceive. If you have been trying to conceive for longer than 6 months, please come see us to discuss other options.

Your First Scan

Once you have reached about 6 weeks gestation, we will do a quick bedside ultrasound to determine your due date and to make sure baby’s heart is beating well. Later, you will have a more detailed ultrasound between 11 and 14 weeks to make sure growth is on track and development is appropriate.

Taking Care of your Child

This will be an exciting time to see your babies development.

There are many resources to help you care for your baby. We recommend taking childbirth classes at the hospital where you will be delivering. Also, the book “What to Expect Your First Year,” is our recommended baby-care guide!

Pregnancy

Along with the joys of pregnancy also come morning sickness and unexpected aches and pains. We are always here to answer your questions, help you in the journey, and even prescribe medication when needed.

Feeding Baby

Breastfeeding has many benefits for your baby.  Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria. Breastfeeding lowers your baby’s risk of having asthma or allergies. Plus, babies who are breastfed exclusively for the first 6 months, without any formula, have fewer ear infections, respiratory illnesses, and bouts of diarrhea. They also have less risk of a few childhood cancers. Breastfeeding can also help both you and your baby maintain a healthy weight.

Please ask us about obtaining a breast pump through your insurance, make sure to talk to the lactation specialist at your hospital, and make an appointment after delivery if you are having any issues with breastfeeding. We are here to help!

    Things to Know

    You are so early, but this is the week you will probably first be able to have a positive pregnancy test. You might have tenderness to your breasts and feel "just a little different," but probably won't notice much just yet.

    Fetal Development

    At 9 weeks, your baby is only about the size of an olive, but is developing quickly. The heart is beating, and the hands, feet, and digestive system are developing. Morning sickness is often the worst weeks 9 and 10, please contact us if you feel you need medication or help getting through this side effect.

    Baby Movement

    Technically you are out of the first trimester, but it usually takes a few more weeks to get all your energy back and be completely over your nausea. Your baby is the size of a small peach and is definitely looking like a small little human now! We usually do NT testing in the office at this time to ensure baby is not at high risk for chromosomal problems.

    Pregnancy Health

    This is the time when we do the anatomy ultrasound in the office and tell you if you're having a boy or a girl (if you want to know!). We also look at the heart, lungs, and kidneys to make sure baby is still doing well. We also will do a blood test to make sure babies brain and spine are developing correctly. Around this time, you may start feeling a little movement. Your baby is about a half a pound and can make lots of little facial expressions!

    Quick Tips

    Pregnancy Comfort

    You've got a bump! Most mommies have a little bump by now, and can feel their baby moving like crazy! Baby is almost a pound and has a beautiful spine and stronger muscles every day.

  • 27

    Yoga & Exercise

    Around this time, we will test you for gestational diabetes. Getting moderate exercise and eating lots of protein and avoiding sugar can help both you and your baby be healthier.

    Healthy Sleep

    Baby is about 3 pounds now and you are well in to your third trimester. Is your nursery ready? Have you chosen a pediatrician? Do you have a care seat? We will discuss all these things at your appointments!

    Watch Out

    Relax Almost There

    We are seeing you every week now. If you go into labor from this week onward, your baby should do just fine. We will do a GBS swab at this visit to check for Group B strep bacteria on your skin. This bacteria does not hurt you, but could cause an infection to the baby after he is born. If you come back positive for this, you will get a few IV antibiotics during delivery. We will also start checking your cervix at this appointment if you would like us to.

    Your Due Date!

    It's your due date!! If your baby is still comfortable, we will start seeing you twice a week. It is safer for babies to be delivered before 42 weeks, so we will never let you go longer than that. But if you're still pregnant now, trust your body and your baby. He will come when he is ready!
