Your pregnancy has been confirmed and in 9 months time you will be a young mother! Very quickly you begin to notice your body changing. First noticeable signs: missed period, swollen and tender breasts. You may experience nausea and feel tired and weary at the end of the day. You may also need to pass urine more frequently. Changes can also cause a change in the sense of smell and taste. It is important to note that all these signs do not develop systematically.
It is important to look after yourself from the first month of pregnancy: avoid medicines because some of them can be dangerous for the foetus.
Alcohol is to be avoided as are all x-rays.
The foetus implants in the uterus on the 7th day and becomes an embryo. Limb buds appear, and the head is well in place. The liver, pancreas and lungs start to form. Blood circulation starts and the renal system forms. On the 21st day, the heart beats and heart contractions are noticeable.
The embryo measures approximately 6 mm.
