Mother care: The process in during pregnancy. How belly grow of mother in pregnancy week by week.
Your Changing Body Week-by-Week From the time of conception until the time you give birth, your body is going to go through some major changes. Find out what to expect with our week-by-week look at your changing body. If you’re trying to conceive (or think you might already be pregnant), start making health changes to ensure that your body is in the best shape for carrying and nurturing your baby. The biggies: cut out alcohol, cigarettes, and any illegal or recreational drugs. You may also need to switch or stop taking some prescription and over-the-counter medications. So tell your doctor that you’re trying to conceive and make sure any medications you’re using are safe.
Is it official yet? Not quite — but be assured that your body’s got those baby-making mechanics well under way. After fertilization, your ovaries start ramping up the production of progesterone, a hormone that prepares your uterus to host the newly fertilized egg, or zygote, that will live there for the next 38 weeks or so
3 You may experience some light vaginal bleeding when your egg implants, which many women mistake for a period. In fact, spotting that’s lighter than your usual menstrual flow is one of the early signs of pregnancy. Do give your doctor a call, however, if the bleeding is fairly heavy or you experience abdominal pain, like a sharp stabbing in your pelvis or even mild cramping on just one side. Although uncommon, these symptoms could indicate an ectopic, or tubal, pregnancy. This happens when the fertilized egg attaches itself somewhere other than the uterine wall — usually in a fallopian tube. The most common causes of an ectopic pregnancy are inflammation of the fallopian tubes and an infection in the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries.
4 You just missed your period and the test came back positive — that’s right, you’re pregnant! Can’t bear to fasten your bra in the morning? For most women, breast tenderness is the first physical sign of pregnancy — even before telltale morning sickness strikes. (If your breasts aren’t 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 peonies has never smelled better, but your coworker’s tuna sandwich — which he’s eating three cubicles away — might make you beeline for the bathroom
5 Even though you’re not starting to show yet, you may notice you’ve put on a few pounds and your pants are starting to feel tight. You aren’t big enough for maternity clothes at this point, but you might want to start shopping for the future. Your skin may be going through some changes already, too. If you’re lucky, you’ll be sporting the pregnancy glow, but don’t be surprised if your skin reacts to the influx of pregnancy hormones with a break-out. 6 Got butterflies in your belly? It could very well be your baby kicking! Most moms-to-be experience this major pregnancy milestone between their 16th and 20th weeks, but don’t expect any big karate chops just yet. The first kicks, called quickening or flutters, are so subtle that they’re often mistaken for stomach rumblings or indigestion — and many first-timers may have a hard time detecting them initially.
