4 Weeks Pregnant: What's Going On

Your Baby at 4 Weeks Pregnant

The great divide. Once implanted in the side of your uterus, the fertilized egg divides into layers of cells and officially becomes an embryo. These cell layers will grow into specialized parts of your little one's body, such as the nervous system, skeleton, muscles, and organs. 

Support system under way. The placenta, the disk-like organ that connects your circulation to the embryo's, begins to form and attaches to the uterine wall where the egg is implanted. The umbilical cord comes out of one side of the placenta. The amniotic fluid, which will cushion your little one throughout the pregnancy, is already forming inside an encircling sac. 

Measuring up. By the end of the week, the embryo measures around 0.04 inch — about the size of a poppy seed.

Your Pregnancy at 4 Weeks

Signs of life. A missed period may still be the only indication that you're pregnant. You might experience some spotting as your fertilized egg implants into the uterus. This light bleeding is known as implantation spotting and it's completely normal. 

The results are in. A home pregnancy test should show a positive result, thanks to the hormone hCG released by the brand-new placenta. This same hormone is largely responsible for the nausea that many women experience in the first trimester. Most home pregnancy tests are accurate after your first missed period, but false negatives do happen.

Scared and stressed out.... I'm 4 weeks along my oldest and only just turned 11 my ex boyfriend and have not been officially together since July but we still sleep together so we're unofficial official he doesn't want kids, we have been through this road before having one abortion and one miscarriage... I want this baby so much and I feel as I'm 34 this may be my last chance but I know he won't support this decision ugh
