Welcome to motherhood! It sounds so new and exciting – and it is! – but you'll grow out of the excitement and into pure happiness soon enough! Naturally though, there are some questions that you're certain to have as a new mum! Don't worry. You'll experience more these days, but we're here to guide you through everything from changes in your body to embryo development.
Pregnancy is a new phase of every woman's life. The physical changes during this happy time might seem unfamiliar, but relax! According to Dr. HM. Bayu Wahyudi, MOH, SPOG, 50 to 70% of pregnant women suffer from things like nausea and occasionally fatigue, headache and fever. These issues arise as your body is adapting to the embryo in your womb. It's all perfectly natural!
The discomfort of early pregnancy becomes insignificant when you think of the new life that is in your body! Yes, your child has started to develop, and will grow tremendously in your womb. But in this early period, your child is only an embryo of 0.1 - 0.2 mm in size in its second week. Their organs and bodily systems will form and develop gradually. Your child's lower limbs will start to grow soon enough and the intestines and nerves are developing.
