From the outside in the 6th week, it is not possible to tell if you are pregnant or not, but the baby in your womb is growing very fast at this time. And he takes all the materials needed for his growth from your body. So naturally, at this time you feel very tired.

Early pregnancy symptoms are almost the same this week:

  • Feeling more tired than usual,
  • Mild pain in the breast or feeling pain when pressed,
  • Getting a metallic taste in the mouth or not understanding the taste of news,
  • Nausea (morning sickness),
  • Headaches,
  • Mood swings or frequent mood swings,
  • Significant changes in eating habits. Sudden onset of a strong appetite for a new food or an aversion to a favorite food,
  • The sense of smell is stronger than before,
  • There is a tendency to get upset / cry over small things. These symptoms are caused by hormonal fluctuations in the body during pregnancy,
  • Increased discharge,
  • Pain in the lower abdomen, such as period pain,
  • Feeling of discomfort or bloating.

Remember that it is normal to feel emotional in week 6 pregnancy. This experience is the same for each person. So there is no reason to be upset.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Try to get as much rest as possible during this time. Talk to your spouse and family about your physical changes and mental state, it will be easier for them to take care of you or help you. Keep in mind, you will not feel such physical fatigue or mental instability throughout the entire period of pregnancy. In most cases, these problems get better after the first trimester, i.e. the 12th week.
  • Eating a healthy diet, which is nutritious and safe, is very important for you and your baby’s health during pregnancy.

Week 6 Pregnancy

How the fetus is growing

From the 6th to the 8th week of pregnancy, a swollen part is seen in the body of your fetus where the heart is supposed to be, which later forms a full heart. In addition, the neural tube is a tube-like part of the fetal body of vertebrates, in front of which swelling is seen, which later forms the baby’s head and brain. The spinal cord is also later formed from the neural tube.

At this time, the fetus’s body is curved and has a tail-like part, so it looks a lot like a bang. At this time, an ultrasound (vaginal) scan of the menstrual tract can often detect the fetal heartbeat. The growing arms and legs of the fetus (limb buds) at this time look like small swollen or swollen parts. Shallow grooves on both sides of the head later form the ear and the front part of the head becomes deeper and hollow to form the eye.

Meanwhile, the fetus is covered with transparent and thin skin in the week 6 pregnancy.
