Your Pregnancy | Month 2

We're with you Every Step of the Way™!
Your baby by the end of Month 1

Week 5 of Pregnancy

Your baby's heart and circulatory system are developing, while your hCG hormone levels are now high enough to confirm your good news with a home pregnancy test. At the end of the week the folic acid you have been taking will pay off as the neural folds begin to fuse. The average length of your little one is 1.5 - 2.5mm.

Week 6 of Pregnancy

Your baby's face is taking shape, which is something sweet to think about as you race to the restroom to pee yet again. Also,your hormone levels rise this week, thus increasing the chance of nausea.

Week 7 of Pregnancy

Your baby is a brain child! Their little brain is growing and developing. The limbs have begun to form, they are still just buds, but before long they will communicate with the brain and begin to move. You may be experinceing sore achy breasts and your frequent visits to the bathroom to pee are not much fun either. As your body adjust to the hormones, the tenderness in your breasts will subside but the trips to the bathroom, well... these will not!

Week 8 of Pregnancy

As your baby starts moving in the womb, morning sickness (which doesn't just strike in the morning) may have you moving to the bathroom. You have probably scheduled your first office visit by now. Every practitioner is different, but know that this is the best time to ask any question that you may have. Make a list the night before so you do not forget the key questions you have.
