By the end of this week, you will most likely be expecting your period to come. However, if you are pregnant your period will most likely not come. Some women do experience some spotting or even a light period. It is also possible to have your period and still be pregnant! If you do miss your period, you might begin to think about a possible pregnancy! Home pregnancy tests are not as reliable as blood tests at this point. A blood test will detect a positive pregnancy test at this point because the hormone, human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), has been secreted.
At this point in your pregnancy, your growing baby is very small and is about 1 mm in length. One mm is about half of the size of a typed letter `o`. You are still not showing at all and you have not yet gained any weight. Even though you are in the very early stages of your pregnancy, many great changes are occurring. The implanted embryo is embedded deeper in the lining of your uterus and the amniotic cavity is beginning to form. The placenta is also forming and will be delivering oxygen and nutrients to your developing baby. This week the blastocyst begins to transform into an embryo. The embryo will have three different layers with different types of tissue. The inner layer will form the lungs, liver, digestive system and pancreas. The middle layer will become the skeleton, muscles, kidneys, blood vessels and heart. The outer layer will become the skin, hair, lenses of eyes, tooth enamel and the nervous system.
A clear result. If you tried it a few days ago and the result wasn't as convincing as in this picture,
try it again now to be sure!
Even though you have not yet gained any weight, you need to be prepared to gain weight during pregnancy. Gaining a healthy amount of weight is crucial for the health of both mother and baby during pregnancy. You can control your weight gain by eating healthy and nutritious meals and snacks. During pregnancy you are eating for two, but that does not mean you have to eat twice as much!
Your body now starts producing a hormone which stops you having your period, and it shows in your urine.
About 1 in 3 women have a light bleeding at this point. This happens before you would expect your period to arrive. Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about.
At this point, your baby is still not visible to the naked eye.

Hi everyone! Started getting my bfps on Monday. Been trying for baby #4 since June and have had three losses recently back in oct, dec, and jan. Was trying to take a break this month for my sanity's sake because I can't handle another loss, and looks like I failed at that. Hoping this baby sticks. Hcg wed evening was 52 and I just got it drawn again this morning. Sucks that I have to wait til Monday to hear results. Hope I get to continue on this journey with you! Not excited yet though, too nervous still...

Hello Ladies! I found out a few days ago that I am PG with my 2nd child! I was a member on this site a number of years ago when i was PG with my son who is now 6yrs old. I have been sooo nauseous and my BB and nippies feel like I have been scraping them on concrete lol. OUCH! Even though this is number two, I am very nervous but thankful for my little blessing. Gook Luck to you all!
mommasarah1109 - 6 days ago
4 weeks 6 days today. Had my progesterone drawn on Monday and it was 30. Hcg on Monday was 797 and today (48 hrs later) was 1555. Dr very happy with results. Boobs have been very sore, esp nips. Slight cramping - mostly at night. Get really tired between 4:00-6:30 and nauseous as well. Thankfully nausea goes away when I eat dinner. Also insomnia at night even though I feel exhausted. Anyone else have hcg drawn?

I guess Im actually still in week three, but found out today that I am expecting. my period isnt due until tomorrow but after a very strong aversion to my hubbys fish fillet last night I decided to do a test as I am on medication for Migraines that is not safe for pregnancy. I just used an 88 cent test from Walmart and it is a definite positive. i didnt even use fmu. So Ava turned one in January and Baby is due in November. Good age difference. Any one else just 3 weeks 4 days?

lovely37 - 10 days ago
Hi ladies! I was on this site before when I had my first at 35...and now at 38 turning 39 next month I could possibly be pregnant! We tried all last year but found out I had a endometromas cyst. Had surgery in October. .then we went back and forth if we wanted to try again. We decided no. But then last month I told my hubby. .lets just try one more month..if its God's will it will happen. .his concern was our age among other things but he agreed to try one last time before I turn 39. I am on a 28 to29 cycle..well today is cd 31 and no af. I have never in the past been able to wait to test but been disappointed so many times that I told myself to at least wait to test when I know there is a good chance o am actually pregnant. So if af does not show today its very odd. .I have been known to start as late as cd 31 but probably have twice in all my cycles! So just hoping she does not show today or tomorrow. .! I will test tomorrow morning! This weekend has been long! My hubby asked if I started and I told him I am not supposed to start till Monday. .dont want him to know I am late ..dont want to get his hopes up..and want to surprise him if I am..I would actually be really really surprised. .and Happy!! At 38-39 so much harder to conceive but miracles do happen! Wish me luck! :)

LeahLoo - 16 days ago
Hello ladies, my name is Leah & I am expecting baby #2 :) My first born is 3yrs old and his name is Ace. I got my BFP yesterday as I took a test because of a migraine that lasted for 3 days (all too familiar from my first pregnancy). My LMP is Jan. 24(give or take 2 days). I'm looking forward to chatting with you gals & making new friends!
brookebaby3 - 16 days ago
Congrats on your pregnancies ladies!! My daughter is 4 months old now but reading some of your LMP dates brought back memories with her pregnancy. My LMP with her was jan 11th 2013 and she was due October 18th. It's such an amazing journey. Best wishes to you all!!

Santos mommy, I'm so sorry to hear that.
jenn80 - 21 days ago
Hello ladies! We found out on the 13th that we are expecting baby number 3!! Eeeek! It is a complete shock considering my OB doctor told us that we would never conceive on our own. To become pregnant with both my girls we had to use fertility drugs. We are so excited!!! I'm excited to take this journey with you guys.
santosmomoftwo - 21 days ago
Thanks Lynne, this was indeed a miscarriage.. Found out we were pregnant on Friday and had cramps and bleeding sat and Sunday. Went to the doctors on Monday for a urine test and a blood test and both confirmed i was miscarrying. My hcg level was 1.5 which indicates I was pregnant but losing it. :( good luck to everyone! Were hoping to be back here soon!
Lynne1807 - 21 days ago
Santosmomoftwo hope everything is ok with your baby fingers crossed for you my dear :) ... I went for a pregnancy test last night and it said negative but I still haven't had my period so Monday I have to go see my doctor for another test. Fingers crossed :)
santosmomoftwo - 23 days ago
So I think I may be miscarrying. I've been bleeding since late Saturday night, i had lots of cramping yesterday and today I don't feel pregnant anymore. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative so I'm assuming my hormones have dropped and that is why? I have an appointment at 3 today to confirm the loss and or find out what is up. Fingers crossed by some crazy miracle that the baby is fine... Does anyone have any more info on m/c? The internet says it's heavy like a period which this is not but it's also not light like spotting either..
Beckym - 23 days ago
Has anyone else had their gallbladder removed recently, I had mine out in July or August laproscopically, and am a little nervous about carrying this baby with the less than a year old surgery scar area.
email@example.com - 23 days ago
Congrats to everyone one expecting :) ... Looks like I'm expecting my 3rd child (I have 2 boys hopefully this one will be a girl). I'm not 100% sure yet but I missed my period this month so it looks like I'm pregnant :)
Beckym - 24 days ago
Congrats to all the new mommies to be and the mommies who will be bringing a new member into their family, I wish us all a happy healthy pregnancy, cherish these moments, because we are only prego for 9 months. There is no feeling like knowing you are caring and nurturing your child in the most maternal way imaginable. Feeling movements and kicks, knowing you are giving your baby its every need. I thought I would never be doing this again, but here I am, and I am so happy to be bringing another baby into this world, they are such gifts. Enjoy your pregnancies ladies, they are precious moments, with more to come when we get to enjoy the years to come with our little ones. God bless :)

I'm getting annoyed bc underwear keep rolling down which is bugging the crap out of me... And I played hooky from work to catch up on sleep... Lol oops... Hope everyone else is doing good!
inkdoll - 33 days ago
Went to the doctor yesterday and he put me off for the next two weeks from work and said he will re evaluate every toe weeks...... They did an ultrasound and could see the sac and it measured right on target :) I had my levels redone today and the are doubling everyday still and went from 907 to 3264 in 72 hours :) I have another ultrasound scheduled for next Thursday and I'm hoping to be able to see a strong healthy heartbeat :) thank u everyone of continuin to send us positive thoughts and prayers for our little Miracle baby :)
2ndtimer1976 - 33 days ago
BTW, anybody got a case of the nasty bloating? I already look prego bc I'm so bloated. Even my prego band only helps a little. If I bend down. I grimace and gag and almost barf. I fluctuate between that and hunger!!! What the hel?!?!
