How Big is Baby?

Your baby is now about the size of a pea!

In the 6th week, the baby slowly develops lungs, liver, kidneys and heartbeat. The face of the baby takes form with jaws, cheeks and chin. This week, your baby’s heart develops into a complex four-chambered pumping organ and starts to beat at 160 beats per minute. The baby is covered by thin see-through skin all over the body. In spite of all uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms, you now have a reason to cheer: your little sweet pea’s heart starts to beat.

Mother’s Changing Body:
What to Expect

Although there is no change in the external appearance, the body undergoes various changes as hormones prepare your body for pregnancy.

The pregnancy hormone hCG increases the blood flow to the pelvic region causing increased sexual pleasure.

Your kidneys become more efficient in pushing the body waste out of the system. The growing uterus begins to push down the urinary bladder causing frequent urination in the first trimester.

  • It is important to eat fibre-rich food and drink plenty of water to avoid constipation which will help to combat bloating and gas in the body.
