Conception has occurred, marking the very beginning of a new life.

The fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tube, dividing into a ball of cells called a blastocyst

 Tiny and rapidly developing, the blastocyst begins to implant into the lining of the uterus.

 Hormonal shifts may not cause noticeable symptoms, but some women experience subtle hints like fatigue or tender breasts.

 Pregnancy tests won't reliably show a positive result this early.

 Focusing on healthy habits like prenatal vitamins and a balanced diet supports the earliest stages of development.

 Even before you know for sure, avoiding alcohol, smoking, and unprescribed medications is important.

 The blastocyst continues to burrow into the uterine lining, establishing the foundation for the placenta.

Cells are differentiating into what will become the baby and the support system needed throughout pregnancy.
