My Pregnancy Week 4

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 4

The Embryonic Period
Week 4 signals the beginning of the embryonic period, which will continue until week 10. The blastocyst becomes embedded in the uterine wall. At this point, the blastocyst has grown into a disk-like structure, and is two layers thick. These two layers, called the epiblast and the hypoblast, divide the blastocyst into two chambers, the amniotic cavity and the yolk sac. Additionally during this period, your baby's organs will begin to develop.

      Honestly I don’t think there is a set time. I was 1 month along with my first son when I took a home test & the second line showed immediately & dark, but I was 2 1/2 months pregnant with him when I took a test at the health department & the nurse was getting ready to tell me I wasn’t pregnant because the second line wasn’t showing up. It finally faintly showed up. To this day it still baffles me. I guess every test is different.

    I was supposed to start my period on the 12th of this month (March)… I took a pregnancy test on Friday, but it came up negative. I haven’t really been worrying about it that much because I figured I would start sooner or later… Well today makes day 5 of missing my period.. I don’t know what this means, or what I should do…

    Confirmed today with blood work from IVF. Super excited and nervous. I am a little confused cause I opted for FET and was told that I’ll be 3wks, 6days????? Sleepy and cranky is what I am

    So I tested positive before I would have missed my period… could this be more than one??? I took Clomid this round… my sister has identical twins and my husband is a fraternal twin… wonder what my chances are… Scan on 10/3 may show us just how many circles we have 😀

      Your sister’s identical twins are more a fluke than genetics, so that won’t influence your chances. As for your husband being a fraternal twin – that increases the chance any daughters you have may conceive twins. The Clomid, though, can up your chances for sure. No way to really know until they take a peek! Best wishes from a twin mama 🙂

    This is always that time when you even find out that your have a little one. Me and my love have been trying and we are hoping this month will be better for us. We did get lucky back in January when we found out we would be having another little one but that resulted in a miscarriage so we’re hoping our chances are better. Disappointment sucks and i hope i don’t get disappointted
