3 weeks pregnant
You are 3 weeks pregnant, although this week the implantation of the fertilized egg into the womb wall only takes place. You can notice this by a slight bleeding, also called the implantation bleeding. After implantation you can quickly suffer from the first, early pregnancy symptoms.
Your baby in week 3 of your pregnancy
The fertilized egg quickly divided into a ball of cells, the blastocyst. In week 3 of your pregnancy, the blastocyst reaches the uterus and finds a place to nestle in the uterine wall .
In your uterine wall, the ball of cells divides into two groups. From now on you can call the ball of cells an embryo . One half becomes the embryo, your future baby, and the other half becomes the placenta later in your pregnancy . Among other things, the embryo receives the necessary nutrients and oxygen through the placenta.
You in week 3 of your pregnancy
In the third week of your pregnancy you may notice that you are pregnant for the first time. So you can notice the implantation by a slight bleeding, the implantation bleed . In addition, the hormone hCG and other pregnancy hormones ensure that you will soon suffer from the first, early pregnancy symptoms .
Light cramps , a bloated feeling , tiredness and mood swings can indicate a pregnancy. Certainly if your breasts are also more sensitive , they even appear to have grown slightly and your nipples change , that is very suspicious of a growing creature in your belly. Are you pregnant or is it just a period ?
In 2 weeks a pregnancy test is reliable and you can say with certainty whether you are pregnant or not. If you get a pregnancy test at home, you can test it immediately.

Tips for You This Week
Toss some berries in your cereal. Eating more vitamin C can help increase your body’s absorption of iron, a nutrient you need to help support your increased blood volume.
You can find vitamin C in fruits and vegetables like kiwi, mango, strawberries, melons, bell peppers, tomatoes and asparagus. Iron can be found in soy products, beef, poultry and dried fruit.
Calcium helps you and your developing baby build and maintain strong, healthy bones — plus it’s essential for heart, nerve and muscle health. If you don’t consume enough calcium during pregnancy, your baby takes it from your bones!
Eat three or four daily servings (1,000 milligrams) of goodies like Greek or frozen yogurt, calcium-fortified juice or cereal and hard or pasteurized cheese.
It’s easy to indulge in healthy options when you eat out. In Italian restaurants, dine on grilled fish, chicken, veal or lean-beef entrees accompanied by gorgeous greens. Or order pasta and pizza with fresh tomato sauce, seafood or cheese.
Enjoy teriyaki fish or chicken, miso soup, edamame and soba-noodle dishes in Japanese restaurants (as well as sushi featuring veggies or cooked fish).
As long as your stomach’s amenable to the spices, Indian restaurants make a particularly nutritious option (order practically anything that isn’t fried).
And at Mexican restaurants, enjoy black bean soup or fajitas (you’ll score plenty of vitamins from those bell peppers) with corn tortillas and fresh salsa or guacamole.
When it comes to hair coloring, experts agree that safe is better than sorry. So wait out the first trimester before heading back to the salon to retouch those roots.
When you do go back to the salon, stick to highlights instead of single-process color so that the chemicals don’t touch your scalp. Or ask your colorist about less-harsh processing — an ammonia-free base or an all-vegetable dye, for instance.
And beware: Hormonal changes can make your hair react differently, so you might not end up with the shade you were hoping for, even from your regular formula. Before you do your whole head, try a test strand to be safe.
If your nausea and vomiting are accompanied by cramps, fever or diarrhea, you may be dealing with a stomach bug or food poisoning rather than morning sickness. But whether your stomach is churning from hormones, a virus or that egg salad you had for lunch, the treatment is the same: Rest up and focus on fluids — especially if you’re losing them through vomiting or diarrhea.
Try water, diluted juice (white grape is easiest on the tummy), clear broth, weak decaffeinated tea or hot water with lemon (which can lessen gas).
If you can’t manage to sip, suck on Popsicles. Follow your stomach’s lead when it comes to adding solids — and when you do, keep it bland, simple and fat-free.
And don’t forget that ginger’s good for what ails any sick stomach. Take it in tea or flat, craft ginger ale, or try some ginger candies.
Eat three servings of protein a day to help spur new tissue for the baby-to-be. One serving of meat like skinless chicken or lean beef, for example, should be about three or four ounces — roughly the size of a deck of cards. Other great protein sources include eggs, fish, dairy and legumes.
Back in your mom’s day, you had to miss your period before you took a home pregnancy test (HPT) — then wait a couple of hours before discovering the results. These days, you can find out you’re expecting much earlier, faster and with better accuracy than ever before (though accuracy will, of course, get better the closer you are to that missed period).
Still, it can take a week or more after a missed period before you produce enough of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to be detected on a test. If you’re late and negative, retest in a few days.
