Week 1

Week 1

Honey you are not pregnant right now. However, since your pregnancy is calculated from the first day of your last period, this is where your journey begins. If you are planning to conceive, this would be a good time to cut back caffeine consumption. Keep the coffee to a cup or two at most per day. Quit smoking and any other drug habit you might have. Also, alcohol is also a big no no.

You

You are on your period right now. That blood leaving your body is the starting line (there is a funny pun here I promise) for this journey.

Baby

Uh…right now, no baby. But if you have tested positive for pregnancy at this point (some women spot during their first month), you are probably further along than you think. You might want to skip to week 4. And talk to your doctor about this in other to rule out any problems.

Tip

You don’t need to wait until you are pregnant to start taking prenatal vitamins.Studies show that taking prenatal vitamins improves your chances of conception. As does a healthy diet. You can try Pregnacare which is quite popular among moms in Nigeria.
