Tracking Fetal development

Right now, your baby is about the size of a raspberry. It still looks like an alien but has started to gain certain human features as well like eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Also, the vital body systems like respiratory organs and nerves are rapidly growing inside.

Your baby’s brain and head look like a large ball. (Don’t worry, it will soon start to look like a cute human being).

Its heart is beating at around 140 beats per minute. You will not be able to listen to the heartbeats on a Doppler machine yet. 

Ultrasound during this month

When talking about ultrasounds, your Gynac could ask for an early between 5 to 8 weeks of pregnancy. During an ultrasound, you can expect to see some cool things like the gestational sac, the yolk sac, the tiny shape of your baby, and the super-fast heartbeats. 

Being 2 months isn’t fun always. You may feel sick all the time, you can also become cranky and grumpy. Don’t worry, this too shall pass, and soon you’ll go back to eating whatever you love without puking and able to resume your routine.
