I was wondering since the beginning of this blog whether to include my Pregnancy experience or not. May be it's way too personal to share! But after dwelling over my thoughts for almost 3 months, I've decided why not to share those series of personal experience that can be useful to many. While every pregnancy is different and can't be compared to any specific one, I think sharing what I've experienced is not bad idea at all. As far as my case is concerned, I was continuously searching every blog and sites related to pregnancies and childbirth in those days which is the compelling factor why I've decided to share my experiences.
Here, I will be posting the experiences and information Month wise instead of Week-by-week Pregnancy Guide. And yes, I don't claim any of the medicines and effects if i mention in any of my post related to pregnancies and these will be my personal views and experiences only. While the information i share may apply to majority of women, still i will request all the readers to contact Doctor and Health practitioner immediately if something unpleasant occurs.
So, here we go.
The very 1st month of pregnancy
You may be wondering how all of this large miracle activity is beginning right there inside you, but have no fear, although there is much going on, your little bundle of joy is only the size of a poppy seed at present, so there is still a whole lot to see with the naked eye from the outside.
- After 1 month of pregnancy, depending of the length of your cycle, you may very well receive a positive result in a pregnancy test now. the other hand, if your embryo implanted late, it may take a few more days or even a week before you HCG levels have risen enough to make the test come out positive.
- If your pregnancy test has come back positive then you will want to make an appointment with your medical practitioner as soon as possible. Typically, your first prenatal appointment will happen around 8 weeks of pregnancy unless you have experienced previous problems with pregnancies or in a high-risk category.
- During your first visit is a good time to go over any medications that you currently take, or may take occasionally since there can be many over the counter medications that are not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers.
- Some women will experience slight cramping and even spotting of blood during this week and can mistake these early pregnancy symptoms for the beginning of their monthly period.
- It is also said that mothers of multiples will have a tendency to have stronger symptoms due to their bodies working overtime on producing hormones essential for the development of the new little ones. Extreme nausea, fatigue and even breast soreness are hard to ignore for those who are carrying more than one embryo during this time.
- Sleep is crucial for expecting mothers no matter what age or where they are in their gestation period.
- Be sure to not only get all the vitamins and nutrients needed for your developing baby, but also get enough rest as your body is working extremely hard to prepare the groundwork for your little one who will rely on you for all of its needs in the coming months. Remember !! Folic Acid given by Doctor is very IMPORTANT throughout your pregnancy!!
- Learn to Relax and let go of fear and Anxiety. If there is so, talk to your MOM or whom you are close to. Believe me, It works like nothing else.
So, see you with next post . Relax and enjoy your day. :-)
