• In the first week, the baby is not yet in your womb. Pregnancy is a 40-week process; but this starts with the first day of the last menstrual period, not with the conception of the baby. In the first week, an egg cell forms in your left or right ovary and begins to develop.
• In the second week, the growth of the egg cell formed in your ovary accelerates and continues with the formation of a sac called a follicle. The egg continues to develop inside the follicle incision, the follicle walls begin to crack and the egg becomes ready for fertilization.
• Even if your baby is not yet born, you need to start changing your diet and lifestyle for a healthy baby. It is beneficial to start taking folic acid and consuming foods containing omega 3.
• The egg cell, which becomes suitable for fertilization in the middle of the 2nd week, encounters the sperm cells in the middle of the 3rd week and becomes an embryo. From this moment on, the baby begins to form on a cellular basis and moves towards your womb and takes its place in your womb at the end of this week.
The embryo, which has completed its journey to your uterus, starts looking for a solid place where it can complete its development in the 4th week. Embryo trying to hold on to the uterus may cause small capillary bleeding during placement.
• You may not realize that you are pregnant until the 5th week; but right now you have a fetus the size of an apple seed inside your womb. Since the menstrual cycle is normally 28 days, the completion of this cycle corresponds to this week. Since pregnancy is detected by the Beta HCG hormone, which is started to be secreted in the body, have a test this week and make an appointment with your doctor.
• Avoid activities that will raise your body temperature, such as sauna and solarium.
