Most women who have abortions feel that the procedure is not hurting their embryo if the abortion is by the end of the first trimester or within the first three months of pregnancy. They claim that their baby is “not really a baby yet.” However, from my clairvoyant observations, embryos live primitive lives from the beginning of their existence.
With so many people discussing motherhood and with so much of advice being handed around by experienced mothers, it is very natural that the first time mother-to-be ends up with a confused jumble of ideas, especially where events occurring during the first month of pregnancy are concerned!
The knowledge of many women of their pregnancy may delay for several weeks and some might notice their pregnancy after the first month! So the pattern of your diet might be as it was in the past. Make sure to follow a healthy and balanced diet during the first month of pregnancy and the following months to ensure good health for you and the fetus, during the months of pregnancy and infancy, too.
Many women go through the pain of swollen breasts and headiness. Along comes loads of mood swings situations wherein the pregnant woman is unable to understand the reason herself for her actions and behavior. As far as physical appearance goes, there is not much difference or change in it.
Your breasts will get bigger, often before your period is missed and they will be tender to the touch. You might notice your bra is starting to feel a little tighter than normal. Your nipples will enlarge, become darker in colour and might be sore. You might experience itchiness or your breasts might feel lumpy.
Some mothers are stressed easily in this stage. The growing belly drastically changes a woman’s appearance, sometimes resulting with unsightly stretch marks. For some it causes insecurity with their physical looks. Others take it lightly, as a normal occurrence in pregnancy.
You probably won’t see your doctor during the first month of pregnancy. Some women do not get in until they are three months along unless they are considered high risk. If a miscarriage is going to occur, it happens in the first three months, and there is often nothing that can be done to prevent it and if it is to occur, usually it is for a good reason.
Most women suffer from varying degrees of nausea, the so-called ‘morning sickness’. Eating little and often can be helpful, especially for those people who get it during every waking hour, as it can be worse when the stomach is empty. Fatigue may also start to become a problem, partly because the mother’s body is preoccupied with growing a new human being, and partly due to hormones.
During your first trimester, you are likely facing the issue of morning sickness, which occurs due to major hormonal changes as your body accommodates itself to pregnancy. The best remedy for nausea is ginger, sliced up and boiled to make a tea.
Experiencing mood swings and emotional shifts by pregnant women, its natural to feel doubt, fear and anxiety about the pregnancy, child birth along with the happiness, excitement during the anticipation of little one.
Surprised with the outcome, you abruptly told your husband about this news soon after having a home pregnancy test in one early morning. Afterward, both of you were so contented that you hugged each other for minutes while tears were dropping on your cheek.
During his first two weeks of life, a baby usually lacks the energy to do more than sleep and eat. When the baby is two weeks old, he begins to lie awake for longer period of time eager for something to play with. A baby usually plays by sucking something.
