First Month of Pregnancy

The first month of pregnancy is known as fetal bud stage. After fertilization about four days, the fertilized egg will make a trip and reaches the uterus along.

Symptoms in the first month of pregnancy may include fatigue and sleepiness, frequent urination, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, indigestion, bloating. Your breasts become tender and you tire easily. Although it’s not yet noticeable, your uterus is growing larger. Your weight and body shape probably have not begun to change.

At this point, your baby is the size of the head of a small pin, or merely a group of cells clustered together. Your baby is growing as cells begin to multiply. Almost immediately after the egg implants, formation of the umbilical cord and placenta begins to take place. The job of the placenta is responsible for getting the baby all the nutrients she needs from mom. The placenta also disposes of the baby’s waste.
