5 weeks pregnant
Many women don’t have their first ante-natal appointment until the end of the first trimester. If you do go to your doctor or midwife now, they will be able to work out your baby’s due date. Alternately, check with one of the on-line calculators which will ask you to type in the first day of your last period and then estimate your (Estimated Date of Delivery). The count down has officially begun.
Although early pregnancy symptoms are fairly classic, e.g. nausea, wanting to wee a lot more frequently, many women just describe just a sensation of feeling strange, as if they are not quite “with it”. Even your partner may have noticed you being a bit more sensitive and moody than you normally are. Although you don’t look any different, you are officially in your 2nd month of pregnancy, with only 7 more to go.
