During week four of pregnancy, your body is very active internally even if you don’t realise it! Several types of hormones are now rushing around your system, preparing all of the different organs and elements of your body for pregnancy and motherhood.The pregnancy hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), released by the placenta, provides you with two important hormones: oestrogen and progesterone. Oestrogen regulates the changes you will be experiencing over the next months in your uterine wall, breasts, and other body tissues, whilst the function of progesterone is to prepare the uterine lining to accept and maintain a fertilised egg during the first few weeks of your pregnancy.
