3 Weeks Pregnant

This week is when all the magic happens, but will a home pregnancy test reveal the big news? Plus, what should you be eating?

  • Baby at 3 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Let's get this party started! Welcome to our weekly series on pregnancy from a natural perspective.

    Why are we starting at week 3? Well, you due date isn’t calculated from the precise moment of conception, but rather from the first day of your last menstrual period—which means you’re not actually pregnant at all during weeks 1 and 2 of your pregnancy.

    Week 3, however, is when the magic happens.

    Between 12 and 24 hours after Papa’s sperm meets your egg, your genetic material has combined, baby’s sex has been determined, and your single-celled “zygote” has started traveling through the fallopian tube.

    Once arriving inside your uterus—anywhere from 3 to 5 days later—baby will implant into the uterine lining, snuggling deep into the sponge-like tissue, making herself (or himself) a cozy home.

    Let's the games begin!

  • You at 3 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    So what's going on with you in week 3? In a word (or two): Not much.

    It’s still way too early to detect your little guy or gal via a home pregnancy test—your body likely hasn’t started producing hCG, and most mamas won’t even realize they’re pregnant for several more weeks.

    Some women, however, may experience some very early signs and symptoms, including fatigue, nausea, a heightened sense of smell, or light spotting. Your breasts might also feel full or tender, and your areolas may seem darker.

    What to Eat When Pregnant- Your Perfect Pregnancy Diet article Mama Natural

    Many women are looking for that perfect pregnancy diet. One that will help them feel great, nourish their growing baby within, and perhaps help them not gain too much weight.

    But there is so much conflicting information out there.

    • Eat mostly plants.
    • Eat lots of protein.
    • Don’t eat salt.
    • Do eat salt.
    • Eat fish.
    • Fish is too high in contaminants.

    And then there are women who don’t have the luxury of thinking about the perfect pregnancy diet as they are in the throws of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a debilitating form of nausea and vomiting.

    So what's the perfect pregnancy diet for YOU? Find out in this article.
