Could I Be 1 Month Pregnant?

05ba25eba16c1560a7ebc8ba87ea2158.jpgSome women may or may not know when they are 1 month pregnant, and if not, it's only a matter of time until the symptom of pregnancy become visible. A ignore period is usually the first sign, which may also be accompanied by sore breasts,weakness, faintness, vomiting, light spot, or mild pain. If using the calendar method of calculation, being 1 month pregnant means that it has been one month since the start of the last menstrual period.

Ovulation usually occurs around the fourteenth day or midway through the menstrual cycle, and after the egg has been fertilized by the sperm,it takes another ten to fourteen days for the newly formed seed to insert in the uterine inside layer. During implantation it is quite normal for some light mark to occur, but if bleeding is heavy or bright or dark red thena doctor should be consulted, that is if the woman knows she is pregnant. Otherwise, the mark could be seen as the start of the menstrual round.

During the first month of pregnancy a lot of things happen. Hormones are changeable, and periods of being very happy are exchanged for times of crying for no apparent reason! No wonder the women's partners can't quite figure out what is going on. In addition to crazy hormone changes, taste may change.

At 1 month pregnant vomiting may occur fromtime to time, especially in the morning and food that were once favorites may smell excessively strong to eat and cause a mad dash to the nearest toilet. Other important changes are also happening at this time. The amniotic bag is forming as is the umbilical thread, and until this process is complete, the yolk bag protects and provides food to the growing fetus.

With all these changes going on at once, being 1 month pregnant is a important time. Some women may not even know they are 1 month pregnant, and may not even think until the second month or so. These women may have experienced a lighter flow during their cycle, but not think anything until they miss their next period completely.

A planned pregnancy is much different because these women know before they are even 1 month pregnant that they are having a baby they know as soon as their cycle is a little off because they are looking for all the little signs of pregnancy, nomatter how delicate. Being 1 month pregnant is just the beginning.
