Your baby's sex is already decided

Your egg has now been fertilised and the first steps in your baby's development have begun. Whether you are having a boy or a girl is now decided.

Development

Once the sperm has fertilised the egg, your baby's sex is already determined. So even from this very early stage it is already decided whether you will have a little boy or a little girl. Once fertilised, the egg and sperm (now called the zygote) divide rapidly producing more and more cells until a cluster of cells called a blastocyst is formed. This will then attach itself to the uterus wall where it will grow and develop over the next 37 weeks.

Nutrition

Follow the food pyramid as your guide for healthy eating. A healthy balanced diet now will not only help to keep your energy up during the tiring first trimester, but it will also help to get your baby off to the very best start. Research into early life has shown that environmental factors - such as nutrition - will play an important role in your baby's health not just now but for their whole lives.
