Third Month – week by Week


Week 9

What’s happening to your baby?

Your baby now has a new name. It is no longer called embryo, but fetus. It is close to 2.5 cms in length. Muscles are beginning to form now, and they will help the fetus move limbs later. Placenta is developing and will soon be doing its job of producing hormones.

What’s happening to you?

You may now be feeling emotional and moody, elated now and depressed the other. Along with usual symptoms like fatigue, nausea, frequent urination, you may also notice an increase in appetite as well as cravings for certain foods. You may also develop sudden aversion to things you loved before. All these are happening because of the large amounts of hormones doing rounds in your body.
