Your body changes…

This confirms the strange tingling that you felt in your breasts. For some, nothing will taint this happiness.

For others, it is the beginning of small annoyances: nausea, fatigue, irritability, cravings, great sensitivity to odours, excessive salivation ...

Be calm, all these signs are normal. They will disappear at the end of the first quarter. Pregnancy is not a disease.

However, take all the necessary precautions in your daily life: it is during the first three months of pregnancy that all the organs are formed. Avoid consumption of alcohol, tobacco, raw milk cheeses or undercooked meats.

Also avoid taking certain medications, prescribing x-rays that affect your baby's development.

Your moods evolve ...

Your emotions are jostling, you ask yourself a thousand questions. You already feel different, and yet nothing is seen yet.

Don't advertise it too quickly

Do you want to announce that you are pregnant? Patience… Up to two and a half months of pregnancy, the risk of miscarriage is possible. Without being overly concerned, be aware that this can happen.

He grows up…

Your child's life begins the day a sperm fuses with one of your eggs: ten hours is necessary. Very quickly, this microscopic cell, made for half of you and half of the future dad, divides. After four days, 148 cells already exist. 

The embryo is 4 mm long

At one month of existence, the heart begins to beat ... Your baby, which is still only an embryo, is 4 mm long, its weight has been multiplied by 10,000! It looks like a kind of large comma with a more swollen end, the head, and a thinner end, corresponding to the location of the legs and feet.

What is he doing?

In addition to their intense division process, the few cells that make up the embryo migrate. They begin a long journey of 9 days to ascend your fallopian tubes and settle in the uterus for nine months. The embryo has finally found its nest.

The medical examinations to be carried out during the 1st month of pregnancy

See your doctor fairly quickly if you have a specific medical history or are taking treatment.

If this is not the case, you can wait until the second month of pregnancy.
