The 9 months of a pregnancy: the major milestones during the first trimester

Yumi Yay wants to connect parents and their children by means of Our Little Moments, the small but important moments in life. And those first moments start when they are still in their mommy’s tummy! At times, those nine months of the pregnancy may seem to last forever, but your little one is developing from a cell into fully-grown baby at lightning speed. We created a handy pregnancy calendar to help you track the most important milestones in your baby’s development!
