When you're between 7 and 8 weeks pregnant, your baby's body parts and proportions continue to develop and change quickly. Here's what's going on during your 8th week of pregnancy:
As your body changes throughout pregnancy, it's important to adjust your exercise regimen and diet. As always, speak to your health professional about the right changes for you and your growing baby.
There are many things you should do more of throughout your pregnancy - from eating different foods to participating in new activities. However, there are also certain things you'll want to do less of as well.
Most health professionals agree that the consumption of foods and drinks containing caffeine should be limited.
Ask your health professional about how much caffeine you can have daily. As needed, visit Dietitians of Canada for tips to help you reduce your caffeine intake.
Artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, sucralose and acesulfame-potassium, are safe to use in moderation during pregnancy. Visit Dietitians of Canada for more information on artificial sweeteners and pregnancy.
Incorporate certain foods into your diet safely
Some foods can help you and your baby get the essential nutrients you need during pregnancy, but not all varieties are good for you.
An alcohol- and tobacco-free lifestyle will reduce the risk of disease and health defects in your unborn baby, and can improve your health during - and after - pregnancy.
When you're pregnant, hormones cause your joints to become more flexible and even cause ligaments to stretch. These changes will help you during labor and delivery.
