Normal : Your baby is enclosed inside your uterus. It is like a play pen in there . He/she can move around anywhere inside your uterus and be safe.

Prenatal care: Are you seeing a doctor yet? Addressing your health, the baby's health and addressing your fears and concerns are an important part of prenatal care. Make sure you are seeing a doctor who can do an exam and confirm that you are progressing normally
