Pregnancy Week 8: Physical Development

Your uterus, which is now the size of a large sweet lime, is growing to accommodate your fast-developing baby. It’s time to start wearing pretty maternity clothes.

Your breasts that are preparing for lactation will now grow more fat cells. Your bra size will change frequently so ensure that you have bras that fit and support your breasts comfortably.

You may suddenly start experiencing mood swings, and may begin to feel fatigued. This is normal as an increase in progesterone contributes to your sluggishness. Nausea and vomiting of course will continue. You may also have trouble in getting a good night's sleep.

TIP: Avoid shopping for too many bras of the same size, you may need a bigger size soon!
