|You are in Week 1 of Your Pregnancy|
|Within a few hours of fertilization the combined sperm and egg (called a zygote) begin a process of rapid cell division and is floating freely down your fallopian tube.|
Your baby is still just a twinkle in your eye. Doctors actually begin counting the 40 weeks of pregnancy from the first day of your last period.
Feeling bloated, crampy? Your body is doling out the usual monthly symptoms, as your uterus sheds its lining, and you get your period.
Now’s a good time to prep your body for pregnancy. (In other words, it’s time for the party girl to put on a new hat.) Schedule an appointment with your doctor, get a prescription for prenatal vitamins, and start eating a healthy diet rich in folic acid, calcium, manganese, and zinc.
