1st Week Of Pregnancy

Week 1 of Pregnancy generally goes unnoticed as the woman is not yet aware that she is pregnant. In most cases, it will only be a couple of weeks later, when she misses her monthly period, that she realizes that she is pregnant. Couples who are trying to have a baby may depend on several other methods such as the woman’s basal body temperature to predict if they have been successful. Although recording your basal body temperature will go a long way in determining if you are pregnant, you will still need to use a pregnancy test once you have missed your period. Home pregnancy test kits are an accurate method and once you have tested positive, you will need to visit your doctor to confirm the diagnosis.      

In the early stages of pregnancy you might feel a lot of changes in your body and it shouldn’t become a reason for you to worry or get scared. One of the changes will be that your breasts and nipples become extra sensitive Intensive soreness or tenderness is a sure sign that your body is preparing your breast and the breast glands for the next long weeks of pregnancy. Tiredness or fatigue or near exhaustion is another earl sign of pregnancy. It is best that as soon as you find out that you are pregnant to start consulting a doctor. You could ask him to prescribe a good healthy diet and an exercise regime which will help you to remain health and take care of yourself and the little one growing inside you. Excessive hunger and food cravings are a popular and well known signs which are pretty much normal for any expectant mother. Completely contradictory to this is the much fabled “morning sickness” it is a condition that most pregnant women face in the initial stages of pregnancy. Though it is known as morning sickness Most women feel queasy in the mornings at the smell of certain foods though many may also complain of the same at any point in time of the day. Frequent urination is another change that you might notice in yourself in the first week that you are pregnant. These frequent trips to the restroom are also a normal phenomenon for expectant mothers. Even as inside your body changes starts and the new life begins to take shape it is best to get enough rest and keep consulting your doctor as you and your partner embark on this journey together.
