Getting Pregnant

Congratulations! Don’t be surprised, you may not have a baby yet but the fact that you are reading this says that you are well on the right track to holding your bundle of joy.

We know preparing for a baby might seem daunting; especially for first time mums but we want to be there with you every step of the way.  So before getting started here are a few things you might want to tick off your to-do your list. The list is not exhaustive, neither is it a prerequisite for getting pregnant but it will help you keep the road ahead, in perspective.

Baby Birth

Once your baby is born, his placenta (umbilical cord) will be cut by the doctor/midwife/nurse, he will be dried, wrapped in a blanket and handed over to you. Some hospitals may wait a little while before cutting the umbilical cord due to new research which suggests that this might help prevent newborn anemia (red blood cell/iron deficiency). It is believed that a vital amount of blood still flows from the placenta (umbilical cord) to the baby in the minutes following delivery.

Your First Scan

During your dating scan, your gynaecologist should give you an Expected Delivery (or Due) Date (EDD) and check if everything is A-okay. Even though your baby has her sex organs in place, as well as all the eggs she will ever need for reproduction, you will not be able to determine her sex during this scan; you will have to wait patiently till your next scan.

You have just had your gurgling beauty or little boy-wonder or maybe you even had multiple blessings. Whatever it is you are no doubt feeling relieved and quite overjoyed. Seasoned mums might not be awash with the bouquet of different feelings that first time mums have but they know that they have a task of care in the months ahead. Most airlines advise that parents should attend to their own safety first during an emergency, before attending to that of their kids. While you may be concerned about your baby or just plain old pleased to see him/her, you should ensure that your body is fit for the task ahead and that there are no lingering issues from your recent pregnancy or delivery.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy, also known as gestation, is the time during which one or more offspring develops inside a woman. A multiple pregnancy involves more than one offspring, such as with twins. Pregnancy can occur through sexual intercourse or assisted reproductive technology.

Feeding Baby

Your breasts undergo these changes because, at the end of your pregnancy, your baby will need nutrients to survive and if you choose to breastfeed, these nutrients will come from milk which will be produced by your breasts. At the end of your pregnancy, your bra size may grow one or two (or more) cup sizes bigger than your pre-pregnancy bra size so get ready to buy good fitting maternity bras (you will subsequently need a nursing bra for breastfeeding).

    Fetal Development

    This week’s greeting is in Ibo and it means, “I can see the blessing of the Lord on you, thank God” This week your baby is still changing rapidly. Remember that development/growth differs from one individual to another, so your baby may have some or all of these growth milestones now.
