Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

This week of your pregnancy will surely not be as “quiet” as the last two weeks. The reason is that, even though you still do not hear or feel it, the heart of your baby has been already formed and beats. It is rather a rudiment. It represents two tubes that become alive in rhythmic heart beats. Your little one is still so fragile! But after a time, its heart will become stronger in order to be ready for mom’s love.

The first blood vessels appear during this period. They still do not contain red blood cells, but only primary cells from which all types of blood cells will be formed later. As a result of the accelerated cell division, the little baby grows fast and unnoticeably – from 0,2 mm it reaches 1,5 mm! A creature yearning for life grows inside you!

What happens to you?

The first signs of your pregnancy appear now. What you will probably notice first (even though this is not the case for all pregnant women) is the missing menstruation. If you usually have regular menstruation, which is now late, it is quite possible to find out the happy news. You should bear in mind that some cases exist when you might bleed. However, this does not mean that the little baby has failed to attach to mom.

During this week you seriously start having doubts whether you are pregnant. The first symptoms of your body will be tension in your breasts, the inherent morning nausea, sudden weakness, unusual nervousness and irritability.

This week you should ...

Calm down your emotions – try to keep calm until your examination at the gynecologist’s. As we have already mentioned that this week of your pregnancy will surely not be so “quiet”, we should add that it would be further sounded by the happy cries of your sweetheart when he finds out that his family will become bigger.

Be ready for the morning nausea – put stick crackers or cookies in your purse to relieve the unpleasant nausea.

Realize that you are not responsible only for yourself any more – in the course of your pregnancy you will have to be more and more careful with the food and drinks you consume.
