In modern medical science, pregnancy countdown is taken
start from the first day of the last menstruation. Therefore, on the first
week of pregnancy, as such, it is not yet. But at this time
the egg matures, which is prepared for fertilization.
The uniqueness of the female body is that the preparation for
possible pregnancy begins in the first days of each
menstrual cycle. At this time, the blood concentration increases
female sex hormone – progesterone. In order for the egg cell
fully matured need to spend two weeks, so this phase
and is called the first week of pregnancy. After all, it is in the specified
period formed the prototype of the unborn child.
Roughly twelfth to fourteenth day matured
the egg leaves the ovary and goes to the fallopian tube, where
meets with sperm. It is at the top of the masterbatch.
the tube and its fertilization takes place. In the process of connecting men
and female cells all information about the future man is already laid in
existing genetic material that consists of just one
ovum and single spermatozoon. Regardless
of what sex the child will be, he will inherit half of all
genetic characteristics from the mother and half from the father.
First week of pregnancy – recommendations
The first week of pregnancy is the ideal time for
getting rid of bad habits (if you have not done so
earlier!). Particular attention should be paid to the reception of any
drugs that can have a negative effect
on embryo formation. In the period described, it is better to avoid any
x-ray studies of the abdomen and pelvis. Not worth it
visit crowded places, because there is the maximum risk
contract various infectious diseases that are often
very dangerous for the fetus. It will be just fine if the expectant mother
will be able to spend the maximum amount of time in the fresh air,
walking and enjoying nature. At the very beginning of long months
baby’s expectations are especially important positive emotions and good
mood. Any stresses and experiences are unlikely to be helpful and
mother and unborn child.
It is important in the first week of pregnancy to limit all contact with
chemical preparations and also to refrain from electromagnetic
effects on the body. Also, do not start pets.
Many cats are carriers of such diseases as
toxoplasmosis. Getting into the body of a pregnant woman, this germ
causes not only mother infection, but can also cause
serious genetic defects in a child. However, if the cat is in
family has been living for quite a long time, it is more likely that
all women in this house already have natural immunity,
protects against this disease. In addition, during this period
land contacts are desirable, as well as raw meat and fish.
At the beginning of pregnancy will not be superfluous additional vitamins and
minerals. However, before acquiring such
preparations, obligatory consultation of the expert is necessary.
Pre-conception and first trimester folic acid
pregnancy can protect the fetus from a variety of different defects.
Especially useful and balanced should be the nutrition of a woman
preparing for motherhood. Already, you can gradually limit
use coffee, tea, chocolate and carbonated beverages.
It is necessary to give preference to fresh vegetables and fruits,
cottage cheese, lean meat and fish.
First week of pregnancy – medical observation
In the first week of pregnancy it is worth visiting doctors, especially
if future parents have any chronic illnesses.
It will be necessary to choose more benign therapies, the least
harmful to the fetus. Required is a visit
specialist genetics, because when studying the history can occur
alarming details for which you will need to
to undergo additional medical examination. Exists
the likelihood that the gynecologist will appoint an additional
ultrasound examination, between the fifth and
the eleventh day of the cycle in order to monitor growth
follicles and clarify the time of ovulation.
First week of pregnancy – changes in the body
Considering that the first week is still not a pregnancy, then
it is natural that a woman in this period no special
changes yet does not feel. However, the uterus has already received a signal
informing her that there was no conception in the previous month and
now the next layer of the endometrium gradually exfoliates that
manifested in the form of menstrual bleeding. Instead of old
the inner layer is formed new, which is created in order
to feed the future fetus. Thus menstruation provides
constant updating of the internal functional layer of the female
the uterus, signals the absence of pregnancy and stimulates
the formation of new blood elements. In connection with contraction of uterine
muscles during menstruation often pulls the abdomen. But,
despite the pain, given the possible occurrence of pregnancy, all
it is not recommended to take any painkillers.
Gradually, as the menstruation is complete, all the discomfort
pass and feel better.
