Pregnancy Stages: Week 05

Your baby:

Now your embryo is the size of an apple seed. You can differentiate clearly between the head and the tail. At this point your baby’s heart and blood system is already functioning as well as the neural tube that forms your baby’s brain and spinal cord. The placenta and the umbilical cord are functioning passing nutrients and oxygen to the baby. The embryo’s average size is 1.5 to 2.5mm.

Your body:

Your body will be going through early pregnancy symptoms. No physical changes are yet seen. Your breasts are tender and you feel more tired than usual with more frequent visits to the bathroom. Morning sickness is established and might aggravate within the few coming weeks. You have to start taking Folic Acid and prenatal vitamins. Your doctor will prescribe them for you. If you smoke, it is the time to stop and stay away from alcohol. You should visit your doctor as soon as possible if you didn’t do it yet. A prenatal test would be performed and the doctor will do a general screening for your health and history.
