This is the first period or period of menstruation. Most women are just beginning to realize that she is probably pregnant. 

However, in many cases the period is a little earlier or later than the specific time of each month. So they can understand the matter of pregnancy later. There may also be some bleeding through the menstrual tract as the fetus sits on the wall of the uterus (implantation bleeding); Many people mistakenly think it is period or menstrual blood. 

However, in addition to stopping the period at this time, some symptoms appear in the body of the pregnant mother, from which the matter of pregnancy can be initially inferred. 

What are those symptoms?

Here are 11 symptoms:

How the fetus is growing

At this stage the primary structure of the main organs of the fetus has been formed and the baby’s nervous system (brain / brain and other organs related to perception are formed together) is already developing. At this stage the embryo (the embryo turns into your full-grown baby in the future) is about 2 millimeters long. 

The heart tends to form a simple tube-like structure. Some of the baby’s own blood vessels are already formed and blood flow begins. It is at this time that the baby’s heart begins to beat and the heartbeat begins.  

A wire-like portion of these blood vessels connects the baby to the mother’s body, which will later become the umbilical cord. 

At the same time, the cells in the outer layer of the embryo form a groove, which folds more deeply into a hollow tube-like structure called a neural tube. This neural tube will later form the baby’s brain and spinal cord. 

‘Anencephaly’ can occur from a defect in one end of the neural tube (the beginning or the side of the head), where the skull bones do not form properly. Spina bifida can be caused by a defect on the other end (end or tail) – it does not form the spine properly, leaving gaps or gaps in the spine.

Folic acid helps prevent spina bifida. So you should start taking folic acid as soon as you are sure of pregnancy (even if possible it can be started before pregnancy).
