Weeks 5-8 of pregnancy mark the very initial stages of your fetus’ development and introduce the less glamorous side of pregnancy: pregnancy symptoms and discomforts.
There are lots of exciting developments this week! The eyes, brain, digestive system and ears are just beginning to form. However, you may feel less than fantastic, as now could be the time for fatigue, morning sickness and frequent urination.
Right about now, the umbilical cord is connecting you to your little one, as his or her lungs and facial features develop. You may still feel nauseous.
This week the fingers and toes are forming and the eyes are beginning to have color. Now is usually the time to make your first prenatal visit to the doctor to confirm that you are pregnant and listen to baby’s heartbeat.
