Nutrition is also very important for both the mom-to-be and the baby. The first few months it may be hard to receive the nutrition you need do to morning sickness. Even though it is called morning sickness, it can happen any time of the day. You should focus on not becoming dehydrated, and eating when you can. Usually morning sickness will start to subside in the second trimester.
A normal pregnancy usually lasts 40 weeks, but a baby can usually be born 2 weeks before or after the due date and not suffer any major complications.
