Pregnancy week 1


Welcome to pregnancy week 1! This is a time of change, but not necessarily one that’s been planned. You may have heard the phrase “pregnancy week one” and thought nothing of it, but you should know that this is actually an important milestone in your pregnancy. Pregnancy week one marks the beginning of the second trimester, which lasts from 12 weeks through 36 weeks (and beyond). At this point in your pregnancy, your baby’s growing at a rapid pace—up to two inches every day—and you’re preparing for all sorts of changes in your body as well.

What to expect this week.

As you approach your second trimester, there are a few things to expect. You may experience fatigue, nausea and frequent urination. While these symptoms may seem like they’re unrelated to pregnancy—they aren’t! They’re all part of the process of weight gain for your baby’s healthy development.

You may also feel a little bloated or have a heightened sense of smell. This is normal because your body is preparing itself for labor and delivery (which is why it’s called “the pregnant uterus”).

Your sense of smell should become more acute as well; this makes sense because during childbirth, new cells grow in order to replace dead ones that were lost during labor! This means that we’ll start smelling different things than before too: think warm bread baking or fresh laundry drying on clotheslines—it might even be hard not getting lost in someone else’s scent (which could happen if they happen upon us while we’re out shopping).

Your changing body.

  • Your body is changing. If you haven’t already noticed, by the second trimester your body is changing in all kinds of ways. Your stomach is getting bigger and flatter. You may feel more tired than usual because it takes more energy to digest food as well as make milk for your baby (breastfeeding).
  • You may be experiencing nausea and vomiting during pregnancy week 1 — this is normal! The hormones are working overtime just to keep up with everything going on inside you, so it’s no surprise that sometimes they don’t know how to handle them all at once!
  • Headaches can happen at any time during pregnancy week 1, but if they persist longer than usual or get worse with activity or physical exertion then see your doctor so they can rule out other conditions like dehydration or anemia before assuming it’s just another one of those pesky headaches every woman gets from time to time when there are so many things happening all at once inside our bodies that could potentially cause us pain anyway—and then some!”

Common symptoms.

If you’re pregnant, your body will start to change. You might notice these changes:

  • Nausea and vomiting. This is common, especially in the first trimester. It can be caused by many things including morning sickness, stress or anxiety and motion sickness.
  • Breast tenderness (also called mastalgia). You may feel sore breasts as well as a lump that can sometimes feel like a tennis ball under your nipple (this is called Montgomery’s sign). If this happens to you during pregnancy it’s important to speak with your doctor about treatment options for mastalgia because it could indicate breast cancer later on down the line; however if left untreated it usually goes away after about six weeks (or sooner if treated soon enough). A breast exam is always recommended before starting any treatment plan for mastalgia and should be done every day until about three months into your pregnancy since there’s no way yet known exactly how long until something develops further down into being cancerous – so don’t wait around thinking this won’t happen!

What the baby’s doing.

By now you’ve probably noticed that your baby’s heart is beating and her brain is developing. The eyes are forming, ears are forming and arms and legs are starting to form. Her body itself is starting to grow!

While all of this sounds amazing, it can be overwhelming at times—especially because there’s so much information out there about pregnancy week 1 (and beyond). Here are some things that might help put everything into perspective:

You’re starting a new chapter in your life. Congratulations!

Congratulations! You’re starting a new chapter in your life. Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. You’ll need support from family and friends, as well as medical professionals who can help guide you through this first trimester and beyond.

There are many things you should do during pregnancy week 1:

  • Make sure that your doctor checks out any signs of preeclampsia or high blood pressure during their visit on Tuesday afternoon (the day before). If they find anything abnormal, they will schedule follow-up visits with their patient’s OB/GYN provider at various times throughout the week so that they can monitor their progress over time.* Make sure to eat healthy foods such as salads with low sodium content; whole grain breads; fruits like apples & oranges; vegetables such as broccoli & cauliflower . Don’t skip meals either since hunger might get worse when pregnant women don’t eat regularly throughout each day.* Drink plenty of water each day so that urine doesn’t become too concentrated due to hormonal changes caused by pregnancy hormones.* Wear comfortable clothes whenever possible because sitting still for long periods may make muscles ache later on down the road once baby comes along soon enough 🙂
