Pregnancy & Birth
You made it, you're pregnant, now what? First of all, congratulations!
This is the start of an incredible journey. To help you along, we offer you a pregnancy calendar, describing step by step how you may feel during the next few months and the changes that your body will experience, including all those niggles, aches and pains.
Take a look at our experts answers to questions about pregnancy symptoms, weight gain and nutrition, what's safe during pregnancy and what's not, labor and delivery, and more. If your question is not answered here – please send it along!
And in our Directory & Resources you will be able to find some of the most popular ObGYN international hospitals in town, as well as the best places to shop for your maternity clothes. If you don't know where to start with your shopping list don't miss our Getting Prepared Lists, from packing your hospital bag, to basics and extras for the first few months and beyond. And once your little one arrives, take advantage of our beautiful FREE e-birth announcements to let the world know that your baby has arrived.
Finally, you might need the vocabulary sheets we put together: one Ob/Gyn Lexicon for decrypting your ob/gyn appointments (because even when it's all in English it can still feel like they are speaking another language to us!), and one Pregnancy & Birth Chinese Vocab Sheet just in case you don't understand what's going on around you and could do with the extra help.
