This week of pregnancy your baby is about an inch in length and weighs close to a gram. Your baby is becoming distinctively human in shape.

The embryonic tail is disappearing and the face is more rounded. He or she now has all the major organs, muscles and nerves. Hands and feet that looked like paddles are forming fingers and toes.

The pancreas and gallbladder have formed, as well as the reproductive organs, although external genitals have no noticeable male or female characteristics, yet. Your baby's tongue is developing during this week. More below:

Changes in You:

You are missing your second menstrual period this week. Your waistline is slowly growing thicker and expanding a little more obviously by now and your pre-pregnancy clothes may be getting very snug at this point, but you still haven't gained much weight by this week.

Fatigue is common during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, so try and sneak in a cat nap here and there, whenever you can during the day. At work, finding time to rest comfortably with your feet up can renew your energy. If you can't nap during the day, maybe you can take one right after work, before dinner or evening activities. Also, cut down on social events if they're wearing you out.
