Week 3 First Trimester


Your alone time with the hubby is a resounding success. With your single egg meeting millions of his sperm, it’s bound to be fertilized.

If you experience a bit of spotting at this time, there’s no need to worry. Some women have what’s called implantation bleeding when the egg lodges itself onto the uterine lining.

Around this time too, your body will produce the Early Pregnancy Factor (EPF), an immunosuppressant protein which keeps your body from attacking your baby as it would a foreign element.

Your Baby

The moment your egg gets fertilized by one of your hubby’s sperms, cell division begins. The fertilized egg will then travel from the fallopian tube to the uterus, taking about four to seven days to get there. Once there, the fertilized egg will implant itself on your uterus within 72 hours. At this time, it is about 0.1 to 0.2 mm in diameter.
