5 Weeks pregnant

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


Length of your baby: 2 millimeter / 0.08 inches
Weight of your baby: 0 grams / 0 ozs

Your pregnancy at 5 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum

You will probably be feeling much the same as last week although the ever increasing amounts of hormones in your body may mean you have more frequent or more painful headaches and may feel more tired than usual. You might also find the need to urinate more frequently. Although morning sickness and general nausea usually appears later the changes in your body, you may experience mild symptoms now. 

It is important you get a lot of rest even this early on and if you feel anxious or apprehensive about the coming few months you should always consult your doctor or midwife. 

 

What's happening with baby

While every week is important for your developing fetus this week sees many changes taking place. The development of the heart and circulatory sytem has begun and the neural tube which will form the basis for the brain, nerves, spine and spinal cord is also beginning to appear. Tiny buds which will leater form arms and legs are also developing. At around 2mm your baby can now be seen with the naked eye.

 

The Practicalities

As well as looking after yourself, eating healthy  and drinking plenty of water to make up for the extra urine loss, you should also try to avoid coming into contact with anything that might contain parasites or bacteria. You may have heard of toxoplasmosis which is a parasite harmful to your baby and in extreme cases can cause miscarriage. It is best, especially for the first few months if you refrain from eating cured, undercooked or raw meat, drinking or eating unpasteurised milk and associated products and get someone else to empty and clean your cat's litter box as toxoplasmosis is abundant in cat poo.

    Hello everyone. My last period was at 12 /11/2018. But I had contact just once at 22/11/2018. Can any one help me and tell me how many weeks am I. I'm so scared and so stressed because I already had to MC 😭. When can I go to the gp ? I don't know how is working here as I'm new in the UK. Is the GP going to send me for an ultrasound and in which week ?? Thnx and good luck to all mom's. Good bless you

    Hi..congrats on your pregnancy. I am a little nervous as well. I had my first missed miscarriage in April of this year and had to get D&C. We found out we were pregnant on Friday and my doctor checked my levels a s everything was ok. I went back today to redo to see if the number are increasing. I will get the results tomorrow. I am a bit nervous.

  • Blondiemom84

    Hi ladies! This is my 9th pregnancy, (1 was mc) and I found out 8 days ago about this Lil peep. I'm excited as we really want a boy! We only have 1 boy right now, and he's the eldest! I haven't even told hubby yet. He's gonna be so excited but I'm waiting for the right time and place to tell him.! Looking forward to reading comments from all you mommies in the coming months! Congrats all!!
