Your pregnancy: week by week. Part 1


          Interested in the way you change during pregnancy? Here are some thrilling facts that you will notice when weeks will pass one by one.

          Week 1

     If you think or know you are pregnant, start making health changes to make sure that your body is in the best shape for carrying your baby. You must cut out alcohol, cigarettes and any other drugs. Also, if you are using any medicine, consult with your doctor if medicine you are using is safe for your baby.

          Week 3

     It is possible you might experience some light vaginal bleeding when your egg implants, which many women mistake for a period.

          Week 4

     You just missed your period and the test came back positive? Now you are 100 percent sure, you are pregnant! For most women, breast tenderness is the first physical sign of pregnancy. If your breasts are not sore now, odds are they will be within a few days or weeks. You may also experience more extreme senses of taste and smell. In other words, that vase of roses has never smelled better, but your coworker's tuna sandwich might make you beeline for the bathroom.

          Week 5

     One minute you are happy like it would be the best day in your life and after a second you are stressed out as the ending of the world is coming? It is all part of the normal mood swings that come along with pregnancy. You might feel depressed, sentimental, powerful, and insecure, sometimes all in the same hour. Your hormones are flaring, so it is natural for emotions to do the same, especially when a major life change is on the way.

          Week 6

     Just a few weeks ago you were wondering if you were really pregnant. Now your body is letting you know loud and clear that you definately are. Sure, some of these signature symptoms can be a bit annoying - the exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, super-sore breasts, headaches, faintness and mood swings, but try to look on the bright side. Most of the symptoms should smooth down in a few weeks.

          Week 7

     Even though you cannot see the belely yet, you may notice you have put on a few pounds. Your skin may be going through some changes already, too. If you are lucky, you will be sporting the pregnancy glow.

          Week 9

     Your blood volume continues to increase so you might feel the effects through dizziness and frequent urination and you might even have a nosebleed. But this extra blood is there for a reason. It will help protect your baby when you stand up or lie down, and it safeguards against the blood loss you will experience during labor and delivery.

          Week 10

     Loving your pregnancy glow? Thank the hormones and your boosted blood volume, which can make your skin slightly flushed and plump. It is fun when the girls are giving you all kinds of nice cleavage these days.

          Week 11

     Is your belly bigger now? If this is your first pregnancy, you may just feel bloated, kind of like after a big meal. Can you imagine that your uterus is now the size of a grapefruit.

          Week 13

     You might feel clumsier these days. Relaxin, another hormone that messes with you during pregnancy, loosens up your ligaments and joints in preparation for birth.

          Week 14

     You have entered the "feel good" trimester! It is typically marked by an energy burst and appetite increase.

          Hope you liked it. Check out other facts about following weeks later.
