7 Milestones of Pregnancy ...

Pregnancy is such an incredible time in a woman's life!

There are so many memorable moments, but the 7 milestones of pregnancy listed in this article are the most important, most remembered of all milestones, in my opinion.2

Read on and find out which ones I mean!

1. Pregnancy Test

This is most obvious, I guess, but if you've ever been pregnant, you know the feeling!

It's almost laughable how you can get so excited about seeing two lines on a stick you just peed on!

(For some, I'm sure this is interpreted through crying and depression, as well!) Those two little lines showing up are very small marks that indicate your life is about to change drastically for the rest of your life!

2. Seeing Your First Ultrasound

Sure, baby is small, hardly developed, even.

He looks like a tadpole or a peanut, an alien, perhaps.

But to a mother, it's instant love and adoration as you get to see your baby for the very first time!

You see his heartbeat, his little head and the makings of the tiny body that will live in you for the next nine months and in your life forever!2

You'll carry those ultrasound printouts around and show everyone, even if they couldn't care less about seeing them!

To you, it's the greatest thing in the world!

3. Hearing the Heartbeat

Next comes the moment when you can finally hear your baby's heart beating with a Doppler at your doctor's appointment.

It's a special moment, as your doctor moves the Doppler around and finally picks up on that faint "thump-thump-thump" that signals your baby is just fine!

This will become a regular part of your doctor visits, but there is nothing like the first time!

4. Second Trimester, Baby!

For most women, it's a joyous occasion when they can say goodbye to the first trimester and all the morning sickness and "blahs" that go along with it.

Many say the second trimester can also be called the "honeymoon trimester" because you feel more like yourself and are able to once again be intimate with your partner without feeling sick or feeling to tired and fat like you do in the third trimester.

If you're lucky enough to say goodbye to morning sickness, unlike me, take advantage of it and have fun!
