How Pregnancy Begins

After a long wait or a surprise, the positive arrives! Then you imagine how everything is going on inside your body and your organism. What will the beginning of the pregnancy be like and what to expect and what is really happening in the first weeks of pregnancy ? How is the baby doing and how is your body reacting to the initial pregnancy?

How It All Begins

Contrary to what many women think, pregnancy starts even on the first menstrual day , did you know? For the correct account, doctors now consider the woman’s first day of menstruation with living blood to define the 40 weeks or about 280 days. However, this account can change according to the first ultrasound exam . In this case, what really counts is the date that will show there and not the date of the last menstruation. This is because ovulation may have taken place on another date, before or after that predicted by the DUM (date of last menstruation).

The fertile period is the starting point for pregnancy. When the woman is able to become pregnant, her body starts to show signs, that is, it shows with small signs such as modification of the cervical mucus (vaginal secretion) and even behavioral signs such as increased libido , the desire to maintain sexual intercourse.

An egg is available in the tube and is able to receive only 1 sperm, after that, the lower film becomes a carapace where the others will not be able to pass. With the conception itself, the pregnancy project begins , this is because we can only say that the woman is really pregnant after the implantation of the embryo in the endometrium, the nesting.

The Great Encounter

After the egg meets the sperm, which are just two cells, the baby’s cell multiplication begins. On the first day there are two that come together and after that they divide into two that divide into two more that divide into two more and so on.

On the third day after fertilization, the baby, which for now is a morula, has about 7 to 10 cells. Between 5 and 12 days, it turns into a blastocyst and has about 400 cells. In this phase, the implantation takes place. The baby finally arrives at the womb after a journey of days , slowly led by the small “little hands” that are inside the womb, the baby travels calmly and with all possible care.

The implantation

When it reaches the bottom of the uterus, it fixes, creating a kind of root for the entire pregnancy. This event is expected between 7 and 15 days after conception. The From there, the woman is pregnant yes , and you can discover the pregnancy through a urine test for pregnancy or for an examination of beta HCG.

The implantation of the baby is very important, it determines the health of the pregnancy and the viability of the embryo, if it is badly fixed, there may be problems such as the detachment of the sac for example. There is a specific place where he stays, the endometrium (layer of blood that should be menstruating) is in an appropriate thickness, usually above 8mm and thus, holds the baby with the help of hormones such as progesterone for example, which makes the maintenance of pregnancy in those early days.

A small detail that many women are unaware of is that, after implantation, there may be a little bleeding caused by the nesting . It is not a large volume and can be seen in small amounts for 1 to 3 days during the period when you should have your period. Pink, reddish blood, but lighter than menstruation blood.

After Deployment

After implantation, the blastocyst (baby project) is divided into two parts , one of which will be the placenta, gestational sac, yolk vesicle and everything that supports the baby. The second part will form the baby. It all starts in the neural tube, that is why the supplementation of L-methylfolate or folic acid is so important, they prevent the malformation of the neural tube that is the basis of the formation of the new individual.

It is recommended to use L-methylfolate 3 months before you start trying to conceive and will continue until 12 weeks of gestation. The first 12 weeks are crucial for proper training. At this stage, the expansion of the uterus begins to accommodate recent and future changes.

First Symptoms of Pregnancy

At the beginning of pregnancy, with the implantation of the baby, the corpus luteum (scar from which the egg came out of the ovary during the fertile period) becomes very active. It stimulates the production of progesterone in the body, consequently HCG, the exclusive pregnancy hormone rises every day, it is possible to have more than a thousand mUI of pregnancy hormone at this stage, more times, less times, the important thing is to always be progressing.

The appropriate thing is to do a quantitative beta and repeat after 3 days, so you will know in the HCG calculator if your body is producing the pregnancy hormone correctly. With the increase in progesterone, the first symptoms of pregnancy appear , such as:

  • Sickness
  • Somnolence
  • Salivation
  • Weak abdominal pain (similar to cramping)
  • Salivation
  • Aversion to smells
  • Swelling of the lower abdomen

You may be feeling something different, so try it out! Was it positive? Celebrate a lot! Being pregnant is a blessing that thousands of women seek every cycle, feel privileged to receive the miracle of life!

Enjoy your shred of people each day, each symptom and each novelty that it will provide. Don’t forget to schedule your prenatal care and do all the necessary exams ok? Ultrasonography is advisable to do only after 6 weeks of pregnancy , so that there are no scares, see only the gestational sac and the yolk vesicle . The baby will appear at about 6 weeks and beats at 7. Enjoy the moment!
