Congratulations on your second week of pregnancy! Know more about your baby’s development and how your body is changing below.
How Big Is My Baby Now?
At 2 weeks pregnant, your baby is not quite there yet. If you had intercourse during your ovulation, you may have conceived. Your baby is still in the process of being a fetus at this time. So, your baby may still be as small as a grain of sand.
My Changing Body – Week 2
My Growing FetusAt two weeks, a fetus (your baby) will be growing in your belly. Though you’ll not feel your baby moving around yet, you may feel sore in different parts of your body.
If you feel very uncomfortable in your situation, try drinking tons of water to reduce water retention. Water retention is one of the culprits as to why you’re feeling sore. Drink at least 2 liters of water daily.
Alternatively, you can also go for a quick warm shower. Warm showers can reduce the feeling of soreness. Just don’t overdo it. Some women feel stuffy when they are inside steam baths, especially in the early stages of their pregnancy. Be wary.
Constant Back AchesBy now, you are experiencing constant backaches. It is because you are ovulating and this is just your body’s natural response. To relieve your pain, do deep breathing exercises and try to have the right posture as much as possible.
The common symptoms you have been feeling during the first week of pregnancy are now a regular occurrence.
Food SensitivityAt this point, you might be sensitive to certain smells. There are some kinds of food that you can’t stand smelling. On the other hand, there may also be certain things you can’t stop smelling. For example, some preggos can’t stop smelling certain fruits or even their partners!
Having Brown DischargeYou might see some brown discharge or very light spotting during the second week. It is a telltale symptom that you are expecting and not having your period.
How is My Life Changing?
At 2 weeks pregnant, you’re more or less easing into your role as a new mom. Your mindset begins to change, as you include your baby in your future plans.
Gone are the days of partying all night and sleeping late because you have to take care of your body.
