Third Week Of Pregnancy



Third Week Pregnant

3 weeks pregnant

Last week the miracle happened and the epic journey started when the sperm penetrated the egg and fertilized it.

This is it your baby is on his/her way. Few days ago you conceived and your baby is starting to form now and you haven’t even missed a period yet.





The Zygote Journey

The zygote ( your fertilized egg ) Will travel through your fallopian tube over the next few days, dividing into identical cells, over and over, until it is 16 cells, although it’s really tiny at this stage but it is your baby. It will continue to drift through your fallopian tube until it gets to your uterus, it’s final destination. Where it will stay there for the rest of the 9 months.


Week 3 symptoms

The symptoms are not there yet, that’s because your hormones have not gone all over the place yet but don’t worry that will come. The symptoms for this week are not really dissimilar from last weeks, here’s  a recap:

  • Nausea: Some hormones might be making their way through your body, particularly hCG hormone, aka pregnancy hormone.
  • Implantation bleeding: When the zygote gets to its destination it will start burying itself in the lining of your uterus (womb) causing a light bleeding.
  • Missing your period: At the end of this week you may realize that you’re pregnant if your period is shorter than 28 days.



To Conclude

The magic is happening although you don’t  know it for sure yet, your baby is growing inside you and at very fast rate. Your hormones are getting around making you feel nauseous and maybe sick. The zygote will soon be reaching his final destination for the next 8 months. It’s all congratulations, all going well, happy days ahead.

If you have any questions about this week or if you need any help or further advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us,, either through the comment box bellow or through the contact us page. I look forward to hearing from you real soon. Until then as always:

Second Week Of Pregnancy



Pregnancy At 2 Weeks

Did you know that roughly 600 million sperm compete to reach your egg. Only around 200 will make the journey. And there will ONLY BE ONE WINNER! One of these will succeed in penetrating the membrane to fertilize your egg. As we said in the last article week 1, your body will release an egg which will move to the fallopian tube. The egg will stay there up to 24 hours when the champion sperm gets in and fertilizes it.

This egg will get swept down your fallopian tube and digs into the lining of your uterus and if all goes well, it will grow into your wonderful baby.

All this should happen during this week, and you still don’t even realize that you are pregnant!





Symptoms at two weeks

Although it’s still too early for the symptoms of your pregnancy, some women might have them at this early stage. So here some common ones:

  • Tingling in your breasts and your nipples might become sensitive.
  • Light bleeding, this caused by the fertilized egg digging into the wall of your womb.
  • An increase in your vaginal discharge.

Your Pregnancy Test

Even if you spot the first symptoms of pregnancy and you really can’t wait to have it confirmed, I would hold my horses, the reason being that “the most reliable sign of pregnancy is a missed period”. Although most pregnancy tests nowadays are fairly accurate and sensitive enough to detect pregnancy hormones really early, still I’d wait until the after the first missed period.





Health Reminder

two weeks pregnantOnce again:

  • Have you started taking folic-acid? If not, Please start.
  • Have you considered some exercise during your pregnancy.
  • Eating well. What to eat a lot of and what to reduce or even avoid.
  • Stopping any bad health habits. Smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeine.

First Week Of Pregnancy

First Week Of Pregnancy

first week of pregnancy

Do you know that you’re pregnant? Of course not! Despite the fact that you don’t even know it, there are lots of things that are happening to you and to your baby!

Your Baby First week

Can you believe that:

  • Is it a boy? Or perhaps a girl! It’s already done. Yep! The sex of your baby is already decided.
  • The most vital organs are already taking shape. The heart, spine and the brain.
  • The rate of their growth and development is the fastest at this stage than any other stage of your pregnancy.

Yet, you don’t even know that they are even there. Amazing!

 

Your Body First week

Before we go any further, let me ask you: are you taking any vitamin Folic-Acid? If you are, that’s good, keep it up. If not, it’s highly recommended that you start now, this is because, if you’re actually trying to get pregnant, you’ll be 4 weeks into your pregnancy before it is confirmed. Health-professionals calculate the start of your pregnancy from the first day of your last period.

As for what’s happening inside your body at this stage:

  • Your body is releasing last month’s egg.
  • It’s building the new uterine to hold the new month’s egg.
  • The new egg will get fertilized and develop into a fetus.

It probably wont be until you miss your period at about four weeks that you will notice the early symptoms of pregnancy. In saying that some women, however, will have some really early symptoms after the fertilization, such as:

  • Nausea.
  • Tierdness.
  • Sore breasts.
  • Frequent and sometimes urgent need to pee.
  • Fatigue.

 

Getting  Ready:

Healthy Mum = Healthy Baby

first week of pregnancy

Simple, right!

So:

  • Eating well is key.
  • Stopping bad health habits, such as: smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeine. If it is not possible to completely stop then reduce it to as little as you can.
  • Exercise: if you already doing it, that’s great! If not, then this is a good time to consider it. Consult your health-professional and always take up exercise with instructors who have experience in working with pregnant women.

Isn’t it amazing that all of this could be taking place without you even knowing it!

Baby is about 85mm long by now from the top of his head to his bottom. You should start to feel less tired and any sick feeling that you have been having should start to go now.

Your Pregnancy 17-20 Weeks

The baby’s body and head are close to being in proportion. Have you started any exercise yet? If not this could be a good time to start exercise. The rewards outweigh the effort.

Your Pregnancy 21-24 Weeks

From now on your tummy will start to grow bigger faster, and you’ll start to look pregnant. At week 24 babies could survive a premature birth.
