With you in your journey from conception to motherhood

Becoming a Parent is not just a one-time event, it is a journey that unfolds over years and we are with you every step of the way.

CONCEPTION

Conception is the first stage of becoming a parent and it is best if you have a detailed discussion with your Ob-gyn prior to conception. Conception could be either natural or in some cases assisted. For a successful conception, it is best to undergo a preconception check and understand your menstrual cycle. Successful conception can take time and it is important to be patient.

In the Conception Stage:

  • Be Patient
  • Be Persistent
  • Be Aware
  • Be Healthy
  • Be Open

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is the stage when your Ob-gyn confirms your pregnancy following a positive blood test. The first sign of pregnancy is when you miss your period and have had a positive result on your at-home pregnancy test. Official confirmation, however, is with a blood test and you will also see certain signs and symptoms in addition to a positive result on the at-home test.

In the Confirmation Stage:

  • Be Positive
  • Be Open
  • Be Cautious
  • Be Curious
  • Be Informed

FIRST SCAN

The first scan is typically undertaken between 8 to 10 weeks into your pregnancy and is a moment of great exhilaration for the parents to see the first signs of the baby. The first scan also helps the doctors get first-hand evidence of the foetus’s growth, position and the first indications of a possible due-date. A little bit of emotional overwhelming is quite common.

What happens in those 40 weeks?

Pregnancy spans 40 weeks, divided into 3 trimesters. Lets delve deeper into the changes you can expect each week.

  • Week1

    Baby Movement

    Technically speaking, your Ob-gyn will not count the first week of your pregnancy to be pregnancy at all. Because it is very difficult to pinpoint ovulation & conception, doctors will date pregnancy starting from the first day of your last period. Thus, you would eventually conceive your baby in a week or so, depending on the length of your cycle. Symptoms of the first week include – vaginal bleeding, cramps & pain in the lower back, bloated belly and mood swings.

  • Week 2

    Baby Movement

    At two weeks pregnancy, the symptoms are still a little difficult to tell. The hormones in your blood still difficult to trace by a blood test but high enough for some symptoms to give you an indication. Frequent urination, sore breasts, spotting, excessive fatigue and bloated belly are some of the early signs that you could pick up. Some women also have an early onset of morning sickness to further evidence that you have successfully conceived.

  • Week 3

    Baby Movement

    Into the third week of pregnancy, conception is definitely accomplished, and you will begin to see the traces of HCG in your body. Nausea sets in and you will notice perceptible changes in your breasts. Spotting is normal and if your cycle is typically less than 28 days, then you may have missed it. A pregnancy test at home could give you a positive result and you should definitely see your Ob-gyn with a blood test to be done for certainty & safety.

  • Week 4

    Baby Movement

    By the fourth week of pregnancy, your pregnancy is detected and established while the baby has already grown but still in the microscopic scale. The baby is just about settling into the new home that is your uterus and all set to undertake the next phase of development that will happen over the next few weeks and months. It is vital to identify an Ob-gyn by this stage and schedule appointment to understand the changes expected to happen next.

  • Week 5

    Baby Movement

    The little one growing within is now the size of an apple seed. This is also your first complete month of pregnancy with morning sickness, fatigue and sore breasts being very common. Your belly is still normal and weight-gain almost negligible. The embryo, small in size, is however developing major organs such as the heart, lungs, liver etc., at this stage. This is a good time to discuss a personalized diet plan and begin eating healthy.

  • Week 6

    Baby Movement

    At six weeks, pregnancy might still be very new and with the mood swings, quite possible to feel emotional. The embryo at this stage is about quarter of an inch but growing rapidly to double its size over the course of the week. A sick stomach is possible at this stage and you are advised to take up fibre-rich food and drink lots of water to overcome it. Your pre-natal appointment and scan is just around the corner and yes, we know you’re excited.

  • Week 7

    Baby Movement

    Week seven of pregnancy and the news of conception has definitely set in. The symptoms are definitely making their presence felt and you will begin to have both cravings & aversions with your food. Cramps, fatigue and morning sickness continue, and you see that mood swings are common. The belly is still as normal as it would be. The embryo inside is growing at a rapid pace and you have just a week before your first prenatal scan.

  • Week 8

    Baby Movement

    Phew, already coming up on two months of pregnancy you’re likely to have your first prenatal scan in this week. And quite possibly also get to hear your child’s first heartbeat. Your Ob-gyn will know for sure how far along are you in your pregnancy. Your uterus will begin to expand, and some weight-gain is quite normal. Some blood tests are in order along with urine and pap smears to check for any abnormalities and infections that may set in.

  • Week 9

    Baby Movement

    Your little foetus is now as big as a cherry – measuring about an inch and weighing 20 grams. The baby is now no longer an embryo, its now a foetus. The HCG hormone in your body is at its peak and the other hormones continue to work overtime. This results in mood swings and continued morning sickness with some headache, nasal congestion as well. The expanding uterus is going to give you the first signs of the bump.
