So the idea that the fetus doesn't get nutrients from the mother for at least 6 weeks is thrown around a lot on this board.
I have never heard this before coming here so I am curious as to where you guys are getting this information? I'm not saying its not true, I'd just like to read something informative about it so I'm hoping you can link me to it.
I tried googling, but I can not seem to find anything relevant.
Also, there are a ton of changes that are occurring from conception to 6weeks, so how DOES the developing blastocyst get the nutrients needed to support such an expensive use of energy?
And if 6 weeks is the magic number, why are we told to take prenatal vitamins during the whole time we are TTA if it doesn't matter until 6 weeks?
Just curious, hoping someone can point me in the right direction
