Pregnancy: Your First Trimester Changes

The first trimester is a time of rapid development for your baby. Because your baby is growing so quickly, it is important that you start a healthy lifestyle right away. By the end of the first trimester, your baby has formed all of its major body organs and weighs just over an ounce.
