Maybe it sounds weird, but in the first week of pregnancy, women still aren’t pregnant! The beginning of gestation counts from your last menstrual period; so if you start counting this way, it looks like you had a period during your first week of pregnancy, and that you are still not pregnant. Soon, your body will make an egg, and in 40 weeks, this little cell will become a baby.
At doctors office
However, in the first week you don’t need to see a gynecologist yet. If you were planning a pregnancy for some time, you have surely done all the examinations and analyses on time, and you have found out that your body is healthy and ready to conceive. Your doctor has prescribed you to take a prenatal multivitamin with 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid daily and advised you to live as healthy as you can.
Tips for this week
Have you decided to become a mom? Great, then you have probably already given up your bad habits – you stopped smoking, drinking, consuming narcotics, and using contraception. Keep your diet healthy and regular!
