We're going to be talking about pregnancy, month-by-month, so you know exactly what to expect. Here is our first update - month one of pregnancy
Month one of pregnancy...You may have noticed some early pregnancy symptoms, you may have noticed your period is late. you might not have noticed anything at all. The end of month one of pregnancy is the time people usually take a home pregnancy test, so you'll find out for sure pretty quickly.
If you are pregnant, the first month of pregnancy will probably go by - or have already passed! - quicker than you think. Pregnancy is counted from the first day of your last period, so by the time you've realised your next period is late, you are already one month pregnant (make sense?)
