We’ve reached that point in the pregnancy where prenatal care is increased. Yep, more visits to your OB or midwife. Every week now. And, more routine physical exams and otherwise. Find out how Amalah is feeling.
Zero to Forty is a week-by-week guide to the miracle of pregnancy and all the various indignities that come with it. The calendar follows the forty-week model.
The column is well-researched but not written by a health care professional. Consider it your internet BFF pregnancy guide. See our legal disclaimer below.
The follow-up to our pregnancy calendar is Bounce Back, which is about the postpartum experience -- the good, the bad and the gory. There Amalah covers everything that happens to your body, mind and circadian rhythms after you have a baby, and (hopefully) helps you make sense of the New Normal. You must go read that too!
