Week 8 is an exciting week for you and your baby. At this point, your baby is starting to move. It's still only the size of a bean so you won't be able to feel anything, but it should be exciting to know that your baby is starting to move and shift around. You may still be going through uncomfortable effects of pregnancy - many women in week 8 are still having symptoms like morning sickness, frequent urination, and fatigue. Fortunately, the morning sickness will likely go away in a few weeks. Other symptoms may last throughout pregnancy, but you may be able to relieve them. To relieve breast soreness, consider buying a new maternity bra or wear a sports bra regularly. If you have any lower back or buttocks pain, you may want to lie on your side for a while. Remember that even though you may not be feeling your best, you should keep focusing on eating well and exercising as much as you can. If you have any questions about week 8 of your pregnancy, talk to your doctor.
