Pregnancy can be an exciting time. It can also seem to take forever. The average pregnancy is about 40 weeks, or 280 days. That’s practically an entire year! How do you make the time seem to go faster?
Many women enjoy using a pregnancy calendar to keep them aware of what is going on in their own bodies and especially, what is happening to the baby. A pregnancy calendar can be used to record important milestones in your pregnancy such as feeling the first kicks, or seeing the heartbeat for the first time.
Pregnancy calendars are helpful for learning about what is happening to your baby week–by-week. Most will offer interesting facts about the baby’s growth and development as well as give an average length and weight for a baby of that gestational age. A pregnancy calendar can also be especially useful to share information with older siblings and help them get excited about the new arrival.
