Are you experiencing morning sickness yet?

You've taken the test and gotten a positive result, but your doctor probably won't want to see you until you're eight or 12 weeks along. Until then, make sure you're eating right. Do ask for a prescription for a prenatal vitamin, and start taking it daily.

What's happening to baby: Your baby is only 0.118 inches long, from head to rump, and his heart is beating steadily, while his skeleton begins to form.

What's happening to Mom: Morning sickness usually begins around week six, but some women experience it earlier. To combat morning sickness, which can occur around the clock, eat several small meals during the day and avoid any foods with strong odors.
