Pregnancy Calendar - Week One

Your Baby:

Doesn’t actually exist right now…


Are on your period… so. much. fun.


Week One

It’s week one of your pregnancy which means you’re actually not pregnant right now. But if you conceive in a few weeks time then you will be. So you’re pregnant but not at the same time… confused?! I don’t blame you!

Your forty weeks of pregnancy starts on the first day of your last period, which is why it’s always helpful to know when it is as if you conceive this month you’ll be quoting this date for the next few months every time someone asks for your LMP (Last Menstrual Period). It means that right now you’ll be starting your period and probably feeling a bit sorry for yourself about it. If you’re actively trying to conceive, then the best thing you can do right now is to look after yourself. That means eating as healthily as possible, exercising and trying to cut down on things like caffeine. It’s also good to start taking a prenatal vitamin that includes folic acid; an important building block for your baby’s development should things go to plan!

Other fun things this week: Focus on the fact that if you do conceive this menstrual cycle then this will be your last period for at least ten months, if not much much longer. Makes it far easier to endure any stomach cramps or period spots!

Fancy sneaking ahead? Here’s week two

A timeshare rental from the resale market is a great way to get a larger hotel room at a significant discount. Hawaii timeshare rentals and Aruba timeshare rentals typically come with separate bedrooms, a kitchen and a large living room area.
