Navigating pregnancy, especially when it's your first time, can be intimidating to say the least. You generally know you've got nine months (surprise — it's actually closer to ten), but other than that, you might not know what you're really in for. Familiarizing yourself with what's to come can help you feel more confident.

It's a good idea to start with the stages of pregnancy, which has been conveniently divided into three trimesters. From conception until 12 weeks marks the first, 13 to 27 the second, and 28 until birth the third. Each trimester is unique in terms of changes to your body, your emotional state, and the little life growing inside you. Read on for what to expect, trimester by trimester.
