Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

During this week, your future baby will unnoticeably make itself comfortable, getting ready to enjoy the convenience of mom’s womb during the next 9 months. In order to develop well, it needs you and the warm place that your body can offer. The baby will get food and oxygen through your body and will return the processed substances resulting from this exchange.

Before it becomes deeply emotional, the link between you and the person growing inside you is first of all physiological. It is implemented through a complex system called embryonic adjuncts. These are the placenta and the umbilical cord. The placenta will play a crucial role in the blood exchange between you and your baby, and it goes through several stages before growing into a separate organ. Even though you might think of them as a part that integrally connects you with your child, the umbilical cord and the placenta are actually temporary adjuncts that will leave your body after the birth.

What happens to you?

You still don’t know anything. If you have been trying to conceive, you are full of expectancy, but not yet sure whether the attempt has been successful. If you haven’t been trying for a baby, then soon you will be experiencing a life-changing suprise. However, we do believe that this will change you in the best possible way. Though, there are no bad moms – the first cry of the little one, with which you will be inseparably connected for a whole 9 months, will arouse your motherly instinct. You cannot even believe how strong!

This is a period when you think whether your menstruation is late, or whether you will have to renew your clothes – for the first time ever with a smile on your face that you need a bigger size.

This week you should ...

Satisfy your curiosity – if you are impatient to know whether you and your partner have been successful in your attempt to increase the number of family members, buy a pregnancy test. You can do the test as early as 3 days before your period is due (i.e. 10 days after fertilization). However, even if it comes back positive, there is no guarantee yet that you are pregnant.

Remain patient until your body starts giving off clear signals that there is another person it needs to take care of.

Think about the way you will announce the news.
