Week 5 starts on day 35 and goes up to day 42.
It is your 6e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 2 millimeter / 0,08 inches
Weight of your baby: 0 gram / 0 ozs

How do you Feel?


The symptoms this week are often the same as in the previous week. However, increased levels of the pregnancy hormone (hCG), can lead to an increase in ailments as hCG is thought to be related to many of the symptoms experienced by some but not all pregnant women. The increased levels of this and other hormones are thought to contribute to headaches which some women get now. There is a chance that you will get through the first few weeks with no sign of sickness or dizziness. If this is the case then you are one of the lucky ones, if not it is nice to know that the sickness and dizziness should abate eventually. If your symptoms however are serious you should consult your doctor or care giver just to be safe and to put your mind at rest.


Baby


This is another important week in the development of your baby as the construction of the heart and the central nervous system will now begin. It is amazing how only in these first few weeks your baby has transformed from a single fertilised egg to an embryo with arms and legs already beginning to form. Last week your baby resembled a tadpole and now the tiny stems where the arms and legs will grow are already visible. As big as a grain or rice, around 2mm the baby is now visible to the naked eye.

An ultrasound scan can now already distinguish between the head and the tailbone and the spine will start developing. The tiny heart will begin to beat around this time, very slowly and carefully.

As well as stopping smoking and drinking during your pregnancy, it is also very strongly recommended that you don't change your cat's littler box. In the feces of cats exist tiny parasites, toxoplasmosis, also found in raw meat such as steak tartar which are very harmful to your baby. If you are working in the garden you should also wear gloves at all times and avoid coming into contact with the feces of animals. This parasite is usually harmless to adults but can cause severe abnormalities in an unborn baby. Certain soft cheeses should also be avoided during pregnancy as they contain the listeria bacteria, also harmful to unborn babies. Remember to read the packaging carefully and avoid cheeses which contain `au lait cru`. Try also, not to eat offal such as liver and kidneys as these contain high concentrations of vitamin A which can also be harmful to your baby.
