3rd Week Of Pregnancy

You have a missed period. Your breasts are stretched and inflated, you have maybe some nausea, you are a little tired ... The estrogen and progesterone produced by the corpus luteum of the ovary and chorionic and the gonadotropin hormone produced by the trophoblast (future placenta), are responsible for all the little discomfort. Their role is to prevent the embryo to be expelled from the uterine lining.

Your baby
The cell divisions are accelerating, the size of the embryonic disc (no longer called the "egg") is 1.5 mm and it double in size each day. On its upper side, a bulge is created which will give birth to the future nervous system. A draft heart, in the form of two tubes appears.

Good to Know
Private or public? Midwife or obstetrician? It's time to ask the right questions about motherhood where you want to give birth.
