Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

In order to imagine how big your baby is, we will tell you that his/her foot is about 2 cm long. Otherwise, he/she already weighs between 130 and 140 g that are encompassed within about 16 cm.

If you will be a mother for the first time, now you still do not feel the movements of your future child. If you have already delivered, you can feel his/her moves inside.

Although formed, the lungs of your baby are still not able to perform the independent function of respiratory organs. They still rehearsе to fully play their role at a later stage. But for the time being, your midget breathes thanks to your blood circulation.

What happens to you?

Try to get used to the thought that you are gaining weight. This is a process you cannot stop while you are pregnant. This is exactly the period in which you and the baby need the extra kilos (not in the form of excess fats, of course). Even though you have tried to keep perfect fit during your entire life, do not worry about this right now. With an appropriate regime, healthy nutrition and slight exercises during the pregnancy, as well as with an active sport practice after the birth, you will quickly get in your clothes from the period before getting pregnant.

When you look at yourself in the mirror, do not think about how your body changes, but about how a little creature you will love more than everything grows inside you. This doesn’t mean that you have to play fast and loose with your body and skin. Spend the required time and attention to take care for the health and beauty of your body with the Maternea products.

Recommended products

We recommended Maternea’s Shower Oil and Intimate Gel for your overall personal hygiene routine during pregnancy. Elasticity Oil and Breast Firming Cream will sustain the skin’s elasticity, but your belly is probably growing visibly, and needs special attention now as well. Maternea Anti-Stretch Mark Body Cream contains an active complex, plant oils and vitamins. It penetrates in-depth and stimulates the cell regeneration in the dermis. The skin remains hydrated and protected.

This week you should ...

have breakfast regularly – Do you like couscous? If you have already imagined it to your liking, here is the good news – it is more than a suitable breakfast that supplies enough proteins to your body.

put meat in your menu – Do not neglect chicken or other types of pure meats for lunch or dinner. Chicken meat has little fats, and at the same time it is a great source of the proteins your body needs so much.

finish with appropriate dessert – You can replace harmful sweets with an apple, raspberries, figs or banana. All these are rich in the so valuable fibers that will improve your digestion.
