As the embryo develops, its cells are releasing increasing amounts of the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) into your bloodstream, which means that you are more likely to get a positive pregnancy test.
You may have already had your first prenatal visit — you’ll likely have one between weeks eight and 10. Most women look forward to these visits, which will grow more frequent as your pregnancy progresses.
At this point in your pregnancy, you’re probably too big for your regular clothes. It’s time to switch to looser-fitting clothing or treat yourself to maternity clothes that will last for the duration of your pregnancy.
