What to Expect During Your First Trimester

October 28, 2013

Pregnancy is an exciting time for every woman, and each trimester comes with both physical and emotional changes. Dedicated to pregnancy health, Prenate® offers these “What to Expect During Your First Trimester” milestones.

Nausea is one of the most popularly referenced first trimester symptoms. “Morning sickness” can actually occur any time of day and usually persists between 7 and 13 weeks. However, it begins earlier for some women and can last throughout pregnancy for some, as well.

Prenate® .AM, a prescription folic acid supplement, is specifically designed to support women with morning sickness. Prenate® AM is a natural first line approach to help manage nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy that include Vitamin B6 and Ginger. In fact, the ACOG (American College of obstetrics and gynecology recommends vitamin B6 first line for management of morning sickness.

Along with nausea, many pregnant women experience a strong dislike for certain foods and/or smells. Though many people associate pregnancy with odd food cravings (ice cream and pickles, anyone?), just as many women experience food and smell revulsions in the first trimester.

Many pregnant women take more trips to the restroom in the first trimester and as pregnancy progresses. As the uterus enlarges to house an ever-growing baby, it puts more pressure on your bladder. This means more frequent urination, especially at night.

Since you’re body is flooding with hormones, it’s normal to feel a mix of emotions during your first trimester. At this time, levels or hormones like estrogen and progesterone help your body prepare to nurture your new addition, but also affect brain chemistry.

Ultrasounds (or sonograms) are noninvasive, diagnostic imaging usually first take place between weeks 6 and 10 to confirm and date your pregnancy. Ultrasound will be used later in the pregnancy to determine the baby’s sex, too!

During the first trimester, the baby’s facial features begin to develop and the neural tube (including the brain, spinal cord, and other central nervous system tissues) forms. It’s important to take in the recommended amount of folic acid before and during the first trimester to prevent malformation of the neural tube. By the end of the first trimester, your baby has developed arms, legs, fingers, feet, hands, and toes, and it can open and close its mouth and fists!

Designed to keep both baby and mother healthy, Prenate® is a family of pre- and post-natal folic acid vitamins including Prenate® DHA, Prenate® Elite, and Prenate® Mini.

Each type of Prenate® folic acid vitamin features the revolutionary Quatrefolic®, an active form of folate that helps protect your baby even if you normally have difficulty breaking down folic acid.
