A Week-to-Week Pregnancy Calendar: Your Essential Guide to Every Stage of Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an extraordinary journey filled with both anticipation and trepidation. As you embark on this transformative experience, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of what to expect each week. This week-to-week pregnancy calendar will serve as your indispensable guide, providing detailed insights into the remarkable changes occurring within your body and your baby’s development.

Week 1: Conception

Your pregnancy officially begins with conception, which occurs when a sperm fertilizes an egg. At this early stage, you may not yet experience any noticeable symptoms.

The fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tube and implants itself into the lining of your uterus. This process can cause light bleeding or spotting.

The embryo’s heart starts to beat, although it’s still too small to be detected by an ultrasound.
