Ideal weight gain
0 - 100 grams
You are eight weeks pregnant and your baby who was an embryo until now is officially a fetus! Your baby is the size of a kidney bean and now is starting to lose its tail. All organs are now beginning to develop. The hands and feet have grown and so, your baby constantly moves around but you won't be able to feel this.
You haven't gained much weight in the 8th week but your breasts sure have grown, bigger and tender. There's 50% more blood in your body than before to meet the needs of your child. Your morning sickness is still very much present and car rides may make you sick.
Food & Nutrition
Biscuits and crackers in the early hours of the day could help alleviate morning sickness. Ginger tea and cold treats can help with the vomiting too.
Fitness & Exercise
Exercising before bed will in a way ensure sleep so make sure to do your stretches then. Meditation during yoga will also help you relax and get a good night's sleep.
