8 Weeks Pregnant!!!


Baby is about the size of a pinto bean and is approximately 14 to 20 mm long! Eyelid folds and ears are forming. The baby's eyes are still very wide apart on the sides of her head, but will eventually center themselves out. The tip of the nose is actually present at this time as well.

One of the symptoms that you might feel around this time of your pregnancy is cramping or pain in your lower abdomen or side as your uterus grows. Some pregnant women feel tightening or contractions of the uterus. Many pregnant women also experience an occasional pain that begins in their buttocks and radiates down their back or legs. This is known as sciatic nerve pain and can be extremely painful at times. More than likely the pain is caused by the pressure on the nerve and it is best to lie on the opposite side to relieve the pressure.

I am really overwhelmed with the growth spurt happening in the baby! Definetly will search for more info on baby development and share them at my blog.
