Pregnancy Week 5

Even though you may not even know you are pregnant for sure yet, you are starting Lunar month 2. The next month is crucial in the development of the baby’s nervous system and heart. Chorionic villi, the tissue lining the placenta, begins to develop. The ovum is now called an embryo and is about 1/10 of an inch long. The amniotic sac is now visible on an ultrasound and contains only a drop of fluid.

Take good care of your baby by taking good care of yourself. Be sure you are taking your Folic Acid as your baby will need it while his brain and spinal cord are beginning to develop.
