2 Months Pregnant.

2-Months-Pregnant

It’s still early days but congratulations on making it to your second month of pregnancy.

Your baby is growing fast this month. It will be a millimetre bigger each day.

It’s important to acknowledge that this is a critical month for your baby’s development. Its major organs and limbs are forming so it’s important for you to be extra careful. Any interference from harmful drugs, alcohol, viruses, or bacteria could negatively affect the healthy development of your baby.

You at 2 months pregnant

This will be the first month that you skip a period, making you very suspicious of whether you are pregnant or not. By the end of your second month of pregnancy you might have noticed some of the early symptoms of pregnancy, such as:

Nausea (also called morning sickness even though it can strike at any time of day or night)

Sensitive or tender breasts

Darkened nipples

An increased urge to wee

Feeling more sleepy than normal

Particular moodiness

Queasiness from certain smells

Something you probably won’t notice is the increased volume of blood in your body. In the early stages of your pregnancy, your heart starts to pump about 50% more blood per minute for your baby.

Your baby at 2 months pregnant

Your baby is making huge progress this month!

It’s still tiny, but your baby’s heart, brain, spinal cord, muscles and bones are beginning to develop. The umbilical cord, which connects your baby to your blood supply, also forms this month.

By the end of your second month, your baby will be looking more like a human. Its eyelids and ears are forming, and you can see the tip of its nose. Its little arms, legs, fingers and toes will also be well formed at eight weeks.

Your baby now measures up to a little over two centimetres in size – about the same as a raspberry.

Things to think about

If you haven’t already, you should schedule a visit with your chosen healthcare professional. Keeping up with regular prenatal visits from the early stages of your pregnancy is a good habit to support a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Remember to keep up your healthy daily pregnancy habits, eat a nutritious pregnancy diet and take your pregnancy supplements. If you haven't already now is a good time to kick any of your not-so-healthy habits. If you are a smoker or enjoy the occasional cocktail, do your best to break these habits for the next seven months – your little one will thank you.

To help keep your morning sickness at bay, don’t let your stomach run on empty. Always keep healthy snacks nearby and try to graze throughout the day instead of relying on three bigger meals. Hard cheese and crackers is a great protein filled snack.

Another thing to be conscious of is your underwear. Always wear a supportive bra. Supporting your breasts well throughout your pregnancy will help with your comfort levels and prevent some sagging.

Don’t be afraid to exercise during your baby’s big growth spurt either. Keeping up regular, low impact exercise throughout your pregnancy is great for your physical and mental health.
