Though it sounds impossible, you are not pregnant at all in your week 1 pregnancy. Usually, doctors take the first day of your last menstrual cycle as the first day of your pregnancy, even though there isn’t any difference in your belly. As it is so tough to pinpoint the right conception date, women use the first day of their period. Your gynecologist uses this measurement to calculate your pregnancy due date. You don’t actually conceive the baby till the second or third week, as per your unique menstrual cycle.
How big is your first-week baby?
Basically, the child is 0.00inch and weighs 0.00oz. The baby is just an egg securely ensconced in your ovary follicle. But, this one egg is dominant and it usually has higher blood supply and leads to the production of estrogen to thicken the uterine lining.
Pregnancy Belly Week 1
There isn’t any baby bump during the first week of your pregnancy. As you will be menstruating this week, you may experience hormonal changes and feel a little bloated. You may also feel cramping and abdominal tenderness.
The symptoms are different for every woman during their menstruation, but it won’t be different from your previous cycle.
