It is done…! The third week of pregnancy is the surprise week that perception has developed. Out of the 250 million sperm released, only about 200 of these sperm become an egg. Long time sperm has been believed to compete with each other to reach the ovum, but scientists are now discovering this possibility that sperms cooperate to move forward together. So, the more sperm your partner has, the more sperm motility, the greater the likelihood of encountering the expected ovum. It can take about 10 hours to make this trip, and the sperm successfully enters through the outer membrane of the egg in less than 30 minutes. Fertilization has developed, and the amazing design and development process of your baby is on the move. So be excited.
Here are our Tips For Third Week of Pregnancy:
DEVELOPMENTS IN MOTHER’S BODY AND BABY:
At this point, you do not know that you are pregnant, but your body will be. In response to the implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus, your body begins to produce a hormone called human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG). Home pregnancy tests recognize HCG in the urine, and some pregnancy tests are sensitive enough to give you a positive result a week after conception. HCG stimulates the ovaries to continue producing progesterone, preventing your body from losing the lining of the uterus.
Your immune system is suppressed, so your body does not reject your baby as a foreign thing. Your ovaries continue to produce progesterone for about ten weeks until the placenta resumes. Progesterone is answerable for many of the side effects of pregnancy and pregnancy symptoms you feel – for example, itching sensation in your breasts. This also allows your baby to feed on glycogen stored in your body. But that’s not all – progesterone is also responsible for the extra fat that your body begins to store. It can not only help relax smooth muscles, preventing premature labor, but also becomes the reason for constipation, nausea, indigestion, and reflux.
At this point in pregnancy, the beginning body temperature – the body temperature when it is completely at rest – will be high. You may notice mild cramps, usually on one side. This pain is called Mittelschmerz in German for “average pain” – is connected with ovulation when the ovary discharges an egg. Some women experience increased vaginal discharge or stains caused by the buried egg in the uterine lining. You need not worry about the absence of spots because most women do not stain during the first weeks of pregnancy. Some other symptoms of pregnancy at this stage include weakness and exhaustion. In addition, higher hormone levels of blood flow more directly on the breasts, causing them to be tender and painful.
Rapidly rising levels of estrogen can even cause a greater sense of smell. Although morning sickness usually does not start for a few weeks, some women can experience nausea or vomiting at this stage. You can start to like some foods, while the foods you have enjoyed previously begin to taste so much different. Even if the baby grows, in the third week, many women lose weight due to nausea, vomiting, and anorexia due to hormonal changes. Complications and vaginal secretions are also very common. So, although there are few external changes that occur, it is important to remember that the internal changes are indispensable, especially during the early stages. Your doctor may advise you to increase the intake of food.
Dairy products, green leafy vegetables, red meat products, and legumes are good sources of folic acid, calcium, protein, and iron, which help to strengthen bones, muscles, and solid tissues in the baby. In addition, a healthy diet can help control mood swings caused by hormonal changes.
The third week called child Morula. A morula is a ball containing cells that multiply continuously. After approximately 30 hours of the onset of fertilization, the morula begins to divide into two cells, then four, after that eight, and so on, as it moves from the fallopian tubes to the uterus. The ball travels in morula, known as a blast cyst, is filled with an excess of liquids. At the end of the week implantation occurs, this means that the little cell pouches attach to the lining of the uterus, or uterus. Once the lining is bonded, the lining of the uterus provides nutrients and removes debris from the fetus.
Specific parts of the child start to take some shape. The features such as sex, eye color, hair, skin, brain, spinal head, and spinal cord, and gastrointestinal heartbeat are already identified, and the child is of different size 0.2 mm to 0.5 mm. This can be very exciting fathers and mothers as they can get the first glimpse of the new child. The mature egg traveling through the fallopian tube through single spermatozoa of about 300 million, is fertilized.
This successful sperm must go into the 6-8 inch uterus before you can reach fertilization waiting for eggs. It takes about 20 minutes to penetrate into the hard outer layer of the egg and sperm eleven o’clock following cores and fuse the egg, completing the fertilization process. The sperm and eggs contain 23 chromosomes each, which are then combined to form the zygote containing 46 chromosomes. The sex of the baby when the egg is fertilized fertilizes depending on whether the sperm carries an X chromosome or a chromosome.
Other important traits, such as hair color, eye color, and type, are decided and determined at this stage. The newly formed zygote moves to the fallopian tube in the uterus, where it attaches to the uterine wall for further evolution. The full implementation process finishes in 6 to 12 days (9 days on average) after ovulation and fertilization. Meanwhile, the zygote continues to divide to form a group of about 100 cells (blast cyst). In some extraordinary cases (about 2% of all pregnancies), the blast cyst is located somewhere in the fallopian tube, ovaries, stomach, or cervix, cause to ectopic pregnancy.
Most women do not find out that they are pregnant or not until the third week arrives. So it’s time to make some changes in the diet and lifestyle that is necessary for a pregnancy and a healthy baby. You should quit alcohol and tobacco and reduce your caffeine intake. Be sure to inform the health care provider of your pregnancy before taking an x-ray for any health problem (for example, dental disease) because X-rays are often not recommended in the early stages of pregnancy.
Avoid going near dangerous substances, such as pesticides. Take prenatal vitamins containing folic acid (0.4 milligrams per day) as it avoids most of the congenital disabilities that affect the brain and spinal cord most likely to begin during the first few weeks. Consult with your friends and family for a good gynecologist. Don’t be so lazy. You should continue your household work or any office job. You should take healthy food, that is also healthy for your baby.
