1 Week Pregnant | What To Expect

(upbeat music) – Welcome to your miraculous, amazing and incredible journey through pregnancy, which believe it or not officially begins this week even though you are
still about two weeks out from actually becoming pregnant. Say what? Wondering why it’s called week one even though it’s T minus two
weeks before conception? It’s because your body’s already busy prepping for your
soon-to-be pregnancy. Right now all hands are on
deck gearing up for ovulation. The first step toward making a baby, but before you ovulate
your uterus has to shed its endometrium, the
lining that was built up from last month’s menstrual cycle. That’s why you’re having your period now. Woo-hoo! Your last one
for at least nine months. Now that’s something to look forward to. It may seem pretty strange
that your pregnancy is dated from the first day of your period but it really isn’t that strange at all. After all it’s pretty hard to pinpoint the exact day when egg and sperm meet. So your doctor sets the
starting line of your 40 week pregnancy on your LMP, or the first day of
the last period you had before you conceived. The benefit to this dating system? You get a pregnancy head start clocking in a full two of your 40 weeks before you’re even expecting and before you’re nauseous and gassy and bloated and swollen. Buckle up you’re in for a
wild and wonderful ride. It’s called pregnancy.

    I gotta say that she makes me feel so happy, even though I feel absolutely horrible right now. 6 weeks along and feeling bloated, crampy, nauseous, and all of those spectacular things.

    I've followed your videos. I'm week 16. I like them, but I wish you'd include the metric system, as currently I am looking elsewhere because the inch system isn't used many other places. Perhaps just add it in writing in the video? Good videos otherwise, but I think I am going to find someone who uses the metric.

    I was 10 days delayed when I first tried to do a pregnancy test, the result was kinda positive I can say because it was a faint line. The next day I went to an OB, she asked me if when was the last day of my period as she calculated she told me I should be 7 weeks pregnant already. She set me for a trans vaginal ultrasound on that same week, however there was no evidence of neither intra nor extra-uterine pregnancy. The OB said me that it might be too early to check my pregnancy. Next advised she gave is to have a beta HCG, which she would then correlate the result from my sonology scan. At home, I tried do some series of pregnancy test at home, there were two instances that I got a vague/shadow line and the other two (using a different brand of pregnancy kit) were two clear/prominent lines. Now I kept asking myself, if I'm really pregnant why I didn't feel the classic symptoms, such as: (food aversions and cravings, fatigue, nausea, etc.) what I only experience I think is some light cramps, tender and fuller breast (which is also present if you're going to have a period). Now, I would like to know as to why I'm having a small amount of dark brown discharge, does that mean my period just came too late? and the based on my pregnancy tests that came positive, were they just a chemical pregnancy due to my hypothyroidism? Please enlighten me, thank you so much in advance.

  • Bias Wrecker98

    The last time I had sex was last week. My last period was Feb. 3rd it JUST became the 3rd of March like…30 min ago lol….but so far my period hasn't come yet. I've been having cramps for the past 3-4 days as usual, and with each passing day the cramps get heavier, longer and more constant like yesterday they were almost every hour. During the first 2 days of my period I get heavy cramps every 10- 30 min. And they last for 2-3 minutes. And I've been having tender breasts also. I was getting ready to worry yesterday if I was possibly pregnant but I had to remember that February is a sheet month and I have to recalculate the days a bit. Can u help me out. Should I worry now or just wait it out for another couple days? Please help.
