Trimester 1
Pregnancy Week 1

Even though this week counts as week 1 of pregnancy, you are not actually pregnant yet

This week counts as part of your 40 weeks of pregnancy, but you aren't officially pregnant until week 3 as conception occurs about two weeks after your period.

Development

You are not actually pregnant yet! This week is usually your last period before conceiving. You don't actually become pregnant until what is called week 3 of pregnancy, but the time is included in the 40 weeks of pregnancy as your due date is calculated from the first day of your last period.
