Pregnancy is a journey that will change your life forever. The process starts with implantation into the woman’s womb. Once the embryo is in the blastula stage, it will adhere to the endometrium and then it will keep on growing there until birth, which occurs more or less on week 40th after fertilization. Women experience many physical and emotional changes during this period of time due to a series of sharp changes in hormone levels.
