You may be more tired now than you were during the first month, and the morning sickness could also be more pronounced. Then again, you could be having a great time and not have either of these problems. Every woman is different, and so is every pregnancy. Some women have to stop wearing their pre-pregnancy clothes at this point, although looser-fitting garments can often go the distance.
The Cutest Little Baby Face
What's happening with baby? Now baby's face is becoming a little more developed, as are buds for fingers and toes. Elbows and knees are beginning to show, too. All of the baby's major organs are present, though they are not fully developed. Baby is still less than an ounce in weight and is a little longer than an inch in length. But don't worry — greater growth spurts are only one month away!
Here's what you might write about this month:
What you were feeling this month
Foods you could tolerate
Foods you absolutely could not be anywhere near
What the doctor said at this month's checkup
You may develop cravings for unusual combinations of food and may avoid some foods that you previously enjoyed, since they make you nauseous. Emotionally, you might be worried about the baby's development — everything is so unknown at this point that it's hard for mothers-to-be to relax and enjoy this part of the process.
