Your Body at Week 8
If you’re not sure if you are pregnant yet, you have now missed your second period. Chances are, you probably are!
Are you finding yourself irritated at the slightest inconvenience or is your partner driving you mad? Major mood swings are result of hormone changes in the body. Explain to your partner that yourself doesn’t really know how to feel right now. Reassure him that this is just a temporary side effect of pregnancy and it will soon pass. Talking about issues that may be bothering you is better than getting to boiling point with each other.
Your Baby At Week 8
This week your baby is starting to move around in the amniotic sac, although you won’t be able to feel any movement as of yet. That exciting part is still to come! Your baby now has a functioning heart that is working on pumping blood around its little body.
