What it means by 3 weeks pregnant
This, to be honest, is the week that your body is actually starting to work its way towards you listening to those giggles of pure pleasure in the three quarter of a year. It is the week where the body may start to get ready. Even though that is the case, you my still not know that it is, as there is still no way for one to know in the third week.

3 weeks pregnant characteristics
As said earlier, there is no any major way for one to dictate if one is pregnant during the third week. However, there will still be a subtle hint of what is running in the background.
The egg has been planted in the uterus and as a result of that, one is able to notice few blood spots in one’s underwear. This happens as the eggplants itself into the walls of the uterus.
This is one of the really common symptoms. In fact, this is where most people are beginning to suspect if this is the case. This is happening due to the newfound hCG hormones in one’s blood. The circulation of the said hormone can make somebody feel vomitus as well as queasy, however, the third week is not when you will feel the full wrath of the newfound hCG rush. The only way for it gets unbearable is if you are more than three weeks or you are going to be a mother of two beautiful twins. This is because women pregnant with twins have more hCG in their blood than usual.
3. Alterations in the breast
One’s nipples will start to feel sore and the area around will start to get a bit dark. This happens because the body and breast, in particular, is prepping itself for breast milk. If it gets too much to bear, there are lotions and creams that will help you.
4. Pregnancy tests will start to show
If you decided that you have gotten the above-mentioned ones and do decide to test it with a pregnancy test, chances are such that it will come positive. Because the test is looking for elevated hCG levels, which are elevated by this point.
This is all about being 3 weeks pregnant. Keep it in mind to calculate ones due date, and learn on the first trimester.
