Pregnancy Life & Style - - GOOD ADVICE -

YOUR BABY

Rapidly di­vid­ing cells are grouped ac­cord­ing to their fu­ture pur­pose, for ex­am­ple, to form baby’s or­gans or his skele­ton. By week five, the brain is de­vel­op­ing and the neu­ral tube fuses. Tak­ing folic acid sup­ple­ments be­fore con­cep­tion as well as now will help re­duce the risk of de­fects.

YOUR BODY

The surge of preg­nancy hor­mones may start to kick in, which could re­sult in your breasts feel­ing ten­der or your sense of smell be­com­ing more acute. You may also start to ex­pe­ri­ence waves of nausea, along with sud­den tears, and even tantrums, as you be­come more emo­tional.
