5w

nullIn the next 8 months you will hardly read diet pill reviews. I’m now on the stage where I just couldn’t help myself eat for two (or three or four LOL!). Well, it’s pretty normal in my condition now, I’m already 5 weeks expecting:

he heart and circulatory system of your baby are developing, while the hCG hormone level in your body are now high enough to confirm that you’re expecting using a home pregnancy test.
Your body’s had all the pregnancy signs — the missed period, nausea, tender breasts, and fatigue. And now you’ve got proof as your pee works its magic on that test strip — yup, you’re officially preggers! This news will probably elicit a combo platter of emotions ranging from sheer joy to sheer terror as the reality that you’re going to be a mom sets in. Mood swings are totally normal (kind of like PMS on overdrive) and you’d better get used to them since they’ll be hanging around for the next nine months or so. Meanwhile, your baby now resembles a teeny tadpole (about the size of an orange seed) as his heart starts to form; you may even be able to see it beating on an early ultrasound. The circulatory system is the first to be operational and the neural tube, which will eventually become your baby’s brain and spinal cord, is under construction as well.
