Pregnancy Weeks 1



Pregnancy is a transition; especially the first trimester will make you feel so. The first few weeks will be all about you getting used to the idea of being pregnant and taking the best measures you can protect the new life that’s growing inside you. 


What to Watch For in Week 1?

Spotting or Bleeding: Brown or red spotting or bleeding when the totally unexpected could be an issue pertinent to your menstrual cycle. Make sure you report it to your medical practitioner as early as possible in order to get any potential problem addressed in its early stage.

Irregular Menstrual Cycle: Irregular menstrual cycles can be short or long cycles, bleeding at times other than your period, or breakthrough bleeding cycles. All these can obstruct your ability to conceive. Therefore, you should consult your doctor for proper medication and further information. 

One-sided Pain: If you feel a one-sided pain in your abdomen, it might be due to the existence of an ovarian cyst, which might hinder your attempts to get pregnant, or it can also be a signal that you are ovulating.

Your Body:
Your body experiences a change in hormones during your every menstrual cycle, and also shows the timing after which ovulation happens in your body. If you are trying to conceive, then the aim is to have the egg instilled into your uterus, where it will reside and continue growing for the next 39 weeks, until the day your baby is ready to be born. 

Your Baby:
In week 1, there is really no baby to speak about. Even if you do not exactly feel anything (yet!) inside your body, your body is actually undergoing a fascinating changeover of your egg into an embryo. During this week of your pregnancy, your body will release its uterine lining, the time during which your period will start, and gets ready to develop a new one that will act as a nest to a fertilized egg. At the same time, several numbers of your eggs will begin to hit the road for maturing. However, only around 20 of those eggs will mature inside the follicles, one of which will develop, ovulate and rupture, enabling the egg or ovum to move down your Fallopian tube, which happens during week 2 of your pregnancy. If two of more of the follicles rupture, you will have a chance of conceiving twins, triplets, or more.  

In general, getting yourself engaged in a fitness program before you conceive can help you in numerous ways. Though this has evident health benefits, you may not be aware of the additional benefits you will get to enjoy post birth. For instance, women who remain fit before their pregnancy usually tend to put on less weight during pregnancy, which means that they are able to lose that weight faster after giving birth.
