You are now in your second month of pregnancy and your developing baby is 3 weeks! You might just be finding out that you are pregnant and may have many concerns and questions. Some women still do not realize that they are pregnant yet. You might have already had a positive pregnancy test. Many tests can show a positive test result 10 days after conception, but it is recommended that you wait until you have actually missed your period. The baby has not grown very much from last week and is now approximately 1.25 mm long. You will not `show` yet for some time.
At this point in your pregnancy, you may begin to experience some symptoms. One early symptom of pregnancy is nausea. Some women will actually vomit and others will not. The nausea and/or vomiting that occur during pregnancy are called morning sickness. Most of the time morning sickness is worse in the morning, but not always. Morning sickness does usually improve or disappear by the end of the first trimester. Another early sign of pregnancy is the increased need to urinate. Frequent urination can continue throughout the remainder of the pregnancy because of the growing uterus and increased amount of fluids you are drinking. Many women also notice breast changes early in pregnancy. It is common to feel a tingling or sore sensation in the breasts or nipples. You might notice that the area around the nipple, the areola, becomes darker during pregnancy. It is also not uncommon to feel tired or fatigued at this point. You might feel like you need to nap at lunchtime and you may need to go to bed earlier to accommodate your body's needs.
As early as this week, the plate that will become the heart has developed. Your baby's brain, spinal cord, muscles, and bone formation are also beginning to form. The baby's skeleton is forming at this time as well. The embryo has a distinct organization that has a top, bottom, left, right, front and back. It is important that you continue or begin to take your prenatal vitamins to prevent birth defects.
On your initial doctors visit you may be checked on Hematocrit, hemoglobin, white blood cell count, blood group type, Rh factor, antibodies to blood group antigens, VDRL, rubella anti-Body titer, hepatitis B, toxoplasmosis, urine culture, and HIV.
Sometimes as early as the second month of pregnancy, the insides of your hands and the bottoms of your feet may itch and take on a reddish hue. This annoying condition is called palmar erythema. The increased color is nothing more than a curiosity of pregnancy.

ellieplusone, i'm glad you posted this, I wasn't aware that it was an early pregnancy symptom (blow offs)...it explains my embarrassing moments before I even knew I was, I just couldn't stop and I never usually have gas, thankfully that phase passed pretty quickly :)

Hey Ladies! I hope this isn't too rude to ask, but are any of you having flatulence problems? Since I found out I was preggo 3 days ago, I haven't been able to stop farting! It's starting to get embarrassing! I know it's a early pregnancy symptom, but come on! haha

mrsog- i just got my 1st faint BFP yesterday at 4Days past missed AF previously about 5 BFN's all early tests and usually i find out a week before AF so i just think each one is different and i have def herd of it before. hcg could be to low still or even too high look that up you can dilute the urine when you test and try see if that makes a difference
jinx - 39 days ago
its so quiet over in week 4 :( might have to hang out in week 5 till some more ladies get those BFP's

Mommyhood09 - 39 days ago
I feel sick to my stomach today @lostandfound. I don't think I will puking today... But I just feel so sick n I don't have an appetite. However, I have to take my vitamin so I have to try and put something in there...
lostandfound1684 - 39 days ago
Momof2-we just told family and a few close friends but that's it. We will probably wait until 12 weeks for everyone else. Though the way I'm bloating I look further along so they might figure it out earlier Lol.

First post as a “Week Fiver.” I'm traveling for work (as a few of you already know thanks to my question from last week). No one at work knows I'm preggers yet and it's so hard not to say anything. Especially because someone else just announced her pregnancy. My BB are so sore in the morning and while I sleep and I feel dizzy and kind of spacey a lot throughout the day. I'm excited for my next appointment which isn't until the 19th (trying to move it up). I had a miscarriage last fall when I was 6 weeks and 4 days so I'm just trying to not stress too much this time. Everyone on here is great and I'm excited to be going through this with you. :)
lovemylilbub - 40 days ago
momoftwo - welcome and congrats! I havent shared my news yet waiting until our first scan at 12 weeks seems soooo long away!

Mommyhood09 - 40 days ago
Yes, @myfirstmkc- I agree. This morning I feel a bit sick. Cooking breakfast for my husband n daughter almost turned my stomach..... Maybe it's the beginning of morning sickness, If so, I then went here we go...
Momoftwo10 - 40 days ago
Hey ladies! Pregnant with baby #3. I have a boy (3) and a girl (1). I am also beginning my 2nd Masters Degree next month so things are about to get krazy! Have any of you shared your exciting news yet?!?
myfirstmkc - 40 days ago
Mommyhood09 - I am totally with you. It will really be nice if the little one inside can somehow tell us he is doing fine. If it means having nausea, at this point, I will be glad to have it just for that assurance..
lostandfound1684 - 40 days ago
Not crazy at all mommyhood...ive been really hoping for it to come this week! Though I was running around the house getting my son ready for school and now I'm feeling super nauseous cause I didn't eat anything first. Yay!! Im hoping my doc will do the ultrasound this first appt. If anything I got one scheduled at 7 weeks at the Women's Resource Center, where they do them for free. Cant wait! Is anyone else checking all the new baby stuff they have out now? My last son was born in 2011, and I thought id have everything already. Now I'm seeing all this neat baby stuff I never had! I just want to shop lol
