What to Expect at 1 Week Pregnant

First week of pregnancy is only a beginning of the long expectancy of a baby. What happens during the first week? The time of pregnancy is counted from the first day of the last menstruation. Hormonal processes and metabolism completely change, the organism spends little energy because it prepares an ovum.

A woman can be fertilized with only one ovum, even though she has 300 000 of them. For a normal conjugation process without any complications or problems, it is necessary to provide all conditions and appropriate environment.

It involves:

  1. You must quit smoking and drinking alcohol.
  2. Do not take any medicine, and, if there is any reason, consult doctors.
  3. Start taking vitamin complex, the main component of which is folic acid. In the list of ingredients it is mentioned as B9.
  4. Restrict your interaction with people and attendance of public places for long periods of time. It can result in infection with communicable diseases, which later will require treatment, and it is not really good in this case.
  5. Eat according to a special diet, refrain from drinking coffee and tea, eating chocolate products, from ready-to-cook and fried food. Carbohydrates can excite the expecting woman's nervous system.
  6. Go to a doctor you know, get examination, but do not do x-ray examination under any circumstances, it is forbidden. Organism feels its negative effect. And, to be on the safe side, remind your doctor you should not do it.

Key Signs and Symptoms of the Beginning of Pregnancy

1 Week Pregnant 1What symptoms do you getting when your 1 week pregnant? 1st week of pregnancy has some traits, according to which a woman is able to guess that she is pregnant on her own, but attending a maternity welfare unit will dispel all doubts.

Defining the exact term of pregnancy, gynecologists base their calculations on the first day of the last menstruation. Nevertheless, at that moment there is still no pregnancy, and that is why the first week is the vaguest. And only when menstruation is over, which is on days 10-12 of the full cycle, ovulation comes along with appearance of mature ovum, completely ready to be fertilized.

At this very moment woman's nervous system undergoes certain alterations, changes its hormones for a single purpose, which may be preparing one ovum out of the many for fertilizing. The first week of pregnancy is only a supposed week; at that point conception does not happen yet.

If a woman wants to become mother very much, her will may be compared with panicking before pregnancy, then she starts looking for the first signs of pregnancy in herself. Since conception has not taken place yet, the most common processes in organism may be mistaken for being the traits of pregnancy, and a woman should not worry about that at all.

Feelings in the Stomach During the 1st Week

Soreness may follow you on the week 1 of pregnancy, and it is normal, because it is related to the beginning of menstruation. If you think it over logically, you will conclude that this stage is quite ambiguous, and you do not know yet whether this week becomes the beginning of pregnancy or not, because the ovum is still not fertilized. And it means that this is not the cause of the pain, cramps or cramping.

Discharge During First Week Pregnancy

The first week may come along with blood discharge inherent to normal menstruation, and it is considered normal. And knowing for sure if it was the last one for the next 9 months or not is just impossible.

Pregnancy Test

Before going to a gynecologist, take a pregnancy test, especially because you can do such procedure at home. The test will either confirm your pregnancy or refute it. But trying to find something out with the test during the first week makes no sense, because even the newest tests such as Clear Blue Digital show actual results only on 2nd-3rd day of menstruation delay. And again, if the first week means nothing, then the actual term is already 3 weeks.

HCG at 1 Week Pregnancy

The hCG hormone level during the first week is in the range from 0 to 5 mU/ml; such numbers are normal for a woman who does not expect a baby as well. Once embryo gets into the uterus, his outer shell begins production of this hormone. Having done the hCG analysis, you will be able to confirm you are pregnant for sure, and also to identify it even at the earliest stage.

1 Week Pregnant: What You Really Need to Know

Ultrasound in First Week of Pregnancy

Many things may become a reason to do a ultrasound on the first week, and the only exclusion may be pregnancy. A ultrasound during the week 1 of pregnancy may be prescribed only if there is a necessity in checking the uterus's thickness and presence or absence of clods, in endometrium examination, or in the check if myoma, cyst, or any other neoplasms take place.

Pregnancy can be stimulated, but only in case female ovary is unable to produce a complete ovum, which would be totally ready for fertilization. This procedure also requires doing a ultrasound on the day 2 or 3 of the beginning of menstruation. If the procedure turns out to have a positive effect, the doctor may do the ultrasound again. A nice tip: completely refrain from nicotine, any medicine, and listen to your doctors prescriptions.

Miscarriage at 1 Week Pregnancy

Symptoms and Signs of Miscarriage

Early miscarriage symptoms are very different, however, in most cases, there is an abdominal pain and bleedings of different colors. Pain that occurs in the lower part of the abdomen, is very similar to the sensations during menstruation or bowel disorders.

Miscarriage at 1 week manifests its symptoms in the form of discharges. A woman can draw attention to the fact that on underwear appeared a few drops of blood, discharges of brown, beige or whitish color. However, this fact may be a sign that the egg is successfully attached to the endometrium of the uterus.

In any case, a woman, after discovering similar symptoms of early miscarriage, should seek the help of a doctor. Only timely assistance of specialists can save the pregnancy and child.

Causes of Miscarriage

Miscarriage at 1 week of pregnancy may be caused by a large number of reasons. However, for doctors and the woman herself in most cases, the main reason that caused the interruption of pregnancy, remains unknown. The most common cause of miscarriage in 1 week of pregnancy are the genetic pathologies of the fetus. Chromosomal abnormalities make the fetus unsustainable. It is not possible to save such a pregnancy.

Another common cause of miscarriage at week 1 of pregnancy the  doctors believe to be hormonal imbalances. The woman, who is in an interesting position, discharges the hormone progesterone. It helps save a pregnancy in the early stages. However,  there is a lack of progesterone at some mothers, causing the death of the fetus.

The presence of infections in the body of a woman can also cause the rejection of the fetus. ARVI can also cause early miscarriage, even if it transpires in the mild form. But particular concern cause sexually transmitted infections. One of the most formidable is herpes. Therefore, to avoid early miscarriage a woman before conception should be vaccinated against infections such as rubella and treat all infections that can harm the development of the fetus.

The cause of miscarriage in the early term may be a woman's self-medication. Many women believe that natural remedies are completely safe for the baby, and  therefore don't even think that they can provoke an early miscarriage. Therefore, for future mothers it is strictly forbidden to self-medicate. If she experiences the first symptoms of the disease, the woman should consult her gynecologist, who can pick up a safe medication that does not cause a miscarriage at week 1.

How to Prevent Miscarriage in Early Pregnancy

You must reduce the physical load. Of course, pregnancy is not a contraindication to practice sport. But it is very important that all loads are in moderation to avoid miscarriage.

Don't take a bath filled with hot water. It is believed that hot water can cause rejection of the fetus due to the rise in body temperature of a future mommy. To avoid the question, how a miscarriage happens, women are encouraged to take a shower or bath with warm water.

Many women, upon learning of their pregnancy, begin to prepare for the birth of the child. And the first thing that is supposed to make is the repair in the house. However, it should be remembered that harmful vapors that are emitted when using paints and adhesives, can provoke an early miscarriage.

Very important is the issue of intimacy between spouses during pregnancy. Doctors believe that the question of how miscarriage happens and whether it can be  provoked by sex, future mother should ask their gynecologist who knows all the history. However, if there is no threat of termination of pregnancy, positive emotions, which can be obtained during intimacy are needed to the future mom.


  • Do your best to not get cold.
  • Refrain from attending public places, such as stores and public transport.
  • Make sure virus does not get you at a clinic or even at home.
  • Beware of communicable diseases, especially of rubella, isolate yourself from ill people.
  • Before doing an x-ray examination, especially if it touches abdomen, tell doctors you are planning pregnancy.
  • Stay calm, do not stress and overwork at job, and sleep well.
  • Tell your relatives about your intention and ask them to treat you well.

Recommendations for Women

  • Do not forget to get preliminary examination and, if necessary, treatment.
  • Take vitamins which your doctor has prescribed.
  • Do exercises which help strengthen your muscles and restore breath.
  • Take especial care of your diet.
  • If you used to take any medicine before, tell your doctor about it.
