Month 2 (Weeks 5-8)

-- Get a positive result on your pregnancy test?

-- Schedule your first ob/gyn appointment to confirm your pregnancy.

-- If your ob/gyn isn’t affiliated with a particular hospital or birthing center, start to research where you’d like to have the baby. Then calculate your due date online!

-- Learn about prenatal testing and decide which ones you’ll be doing. Buy a few pregnancy books -- but don’t feel like you don’t need to read every page.

-- Start taking a picture of your belly in the same spot in your house every week – you won’t believe how much you and your baby are going to grow! (And you’ll love having a record of it!)

-- Sign up now for baby care and childbirth classes and you’ll get a slot that works for both of your schedules.
