Your baby

Although you might not feel pregnant, you have been carrying your baby for around two weeks now. Your little one is growing faster than at any other time of pregnancy - and its sex has already been decided.


You have been carrying your baby for two weeks by the time your period is due. But because pregnancy is calculated from the date of your last period, you are already one month pregnant!

At 3 weeks pregnant, your body will begin to change but it’s likely that this will only be noticeable by you. For more on 3 weeks pregnant symptoms and 3 weeks pregnant signs, read more about the early signs of pregnancy.

What to think about

If you’re not taking supplements, you should begin taking folic acid daily as this helps protect your baby from spinal cord defects. Why should you take folic acid supplements?

You may feel anxious about telling people at work that you are pregnant. Read more about the best time to tell your employer that you are expecting.

Not to sure if I'm pregnant or not :/ I'm only 3 weeks gone if I am and I'm having cramping, sharp pains in my uterus area I've missed my period and my nipples are also feeling very tender. Not to sure what to do if I am?!?! :S.. not really old enough for all of this just yet.


I am 3 and half weeks pregnant snd been having cramping, pulling pains, last 5 days on and off! Never had this with my other pregnancies though don't think!! Guess it's normal though :-)) xx


yes it is normal, it's just your body getting ready for your baby, but if you get worried don't hesitate to go your midwife. i'm 2-3 weeks pregnant with my 3rd :o) and i had cramps everytime but any time i was worried about the slightest thing i rang the midwife, that's what they are there for. x
