Topic Week 5: Teeny tiny baby steps

Fetal development in pregnancy week 5:


embryo in second month
The changes to your growing embryo are not quite as drastic this week
as they've been in the last few weeks. Growth is now largely focused on
their little head, which is starting to develop much more rapidly than
the rest of their tiny body. This is because their amazing brain is
undergoing some very crucial and rapid development in order to
effectively regulate their heart rate, blood circulation, and other
vital functions. As for the rest of their miniature body, what were
simple limb buds last week are limb flippers this week and the tail is
more expressed. Amazingly, within a mere five weeks your little miracle
is already developing the rudimentary forms of their liver, pancreas,
lungs, stomach and nasal pits while their little heart is already
increasing its circulation. Your baby is now a whopping 4-6mm in length.

And how's mom doing?

Your body is still adjusting to the increased amount of hormones and
you are probably pretty much experiencing the same symptoms as last
week. Still, some women will start feeling the joys of morning sickness
set in this week (see Week 4 for specific symptom details). Donít worry
if your areolas are make sure you fully cook all
your meat, wash your fruits and veggies clean, keep away from cat
litter and wear gloves if youíre going to work with any soil. darkening this is a perfectly normal response to the hormonal changes in your body.Also
start having someone else changing the kitty litter for you. Avoiding
this chore will keep you from the remote chance of contracting
Toxoplasmosis. Toxo is a parasite that is only very rarely found in
fecal matter of vermin and rodent-eating felines. Donít worry though,
you donít have to get rid of your cat. Also, make sure you fully cook
all your meat, wash your fruits and veggies clean, keep away from cat
litter and wear gloves if youíre going to work with any soil. See facts about toxoplasmosis for more information.
