Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had any good websites I can check out that shows the development of my fetus as I am newly pregnant and this is my first one! Also, does this website send weekly emails to me to show what my baby looks like? Thanks!

What can I do next?

This is the best one for photos. I really enjoyed seeing the actual photos of the fetus. As opposed to drawings. http://www.i-am-pregnant.com/

Hi M.,
babycenter.com does a great development tracking job - sending emails every week, not just while pregnant but also after baby is born. My little one is 6 months old and we still get a weekly email about what should be going on with her. They also give you quick links to subjects that may be of interest to you in particular.

Great website!

I used this site while I was pregnant with my first son and now that I am pregnant with my second I use it every week. I am not sure if you can sign up for e-mails but it is really informative. Good Luck!

Hi M.,
Sounds like everyone has given you some great sites already to go to, and they would be my pick as well. Especially the BabyCenter.com. Their information and website is very user friendly. No this website (mamasource.com) does not send you updates on fetus development. This website is mainly for mom's to get together online and ask opinions,suggestions,advice about being a parent, or any other questions you might have for other mom's that might have gone thru some experiences that you need advice etc. from. During your pregnancy, and after the baby is born, you can ask us or tell us how you're feeling, what you're experiencing, or what to look for next in raising a baby etc., and mom's will answer you with their experiences etc. Being a first time pregnant, mommy is so exciting huh. It's so new and for me when I was pregnant, I couldn't believe that there was a baby growing inside of me. It was like I was in shock for the longest time because I really didn't think I was going to ever be able to have a baby. Just wait for your first ultrasound! AMAZING! Keep coming back to mamasource and let us know how you're doing. Do you have family and friends that are near to support you during this precious period in your life? I hope so. If at any time you would like to talk/email just send me an email back and we can chat it up ok? There are lots of great mom's on this website. I found one of my best friends on here! :-) Take care of yourself. G.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Isn't it exciting? This site doesn't send out anything but you can register for weekly emails through babiesonline.com and also I do believe that americanbaby.com (the magazines website) has weekly info. I have a few more... so you can choose which one you like best... babycenter.com and Wal-mart also sends out a weekly thing too. Hope you find this useful! Good luck! =O)

babycenter.com, its sends weekly updates what the baby will look like, sends you newsletters and they continue, my daughter is turning 3 next week and i now get monthly updates from them. THey also have great baby message boards for anything you can ever have a question about. Also a great book is what to expect when you are expecting. It has month by month what to expect at the dr, questions, and how your baby is growning. WHat to expect the first year is a great book as well.

Hi M.,
You should check out PregnancyWeekly.com. They send you weekly updates on the development of your baby and how you may be feeling as well as pointers and tips for coping with the many things that come up with being pregnent. After you deleiver, you are automatically registered with Baby Weekly and they send you weekly updates on your baby and the developmental stages they go through. They do have the monthly 3-D picture of a developing fetus also. And the website also has a whole bunch of different categories your can search and read through. It's a great site.

There is a cool pregnancy calendar through www.webmd.com, just click on the Women's Health tab and click pregnancy. There is lots of good stuff on that site. I also had the books "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" and "What to Expect While You're Expecting". I loved the week by week one better, but both were good. Try to borrow the "What to Expect..." one if you can.

WalMart has a great weekly e-mail that they send out as part of their Baby Connection newsletter. I found it so helpful. it gives you a picture of what they baby should look like that week, and also tells you a few things about what should be happening to it (such as when it's lungs develop, when it gets hair and nails, how much it should weigh and how long it should be, things like that) and it also gives things for YOU for during your pregnancy. Then when the baby is born, it goes into development stages (baby should be rolling over, babbling, sitting supported, etc) You can go to
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/catalog.gsp?cat=538347
and click on weekly newsletter to register for it. Good luck with your new little one, and if you need anyone to talk to, you can always e-mail me at [email protected]____.com :)
