The pregnant woman's body varies from week to week of pregnancy. By week 8, the fetus may notice many marked changes due to the rapid development of the fetus

1. Week 8 pregnant woman's change

By the 8th week, the fetus is growing at a rapid pace. This is the official stage of transition from the embryo to the fetus. During this period, the mother may feel some of the following changes:

  • Pregnancy is still on the rise this week. Common symptoms are nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to certain odors
  • This week pregnant women may feel tired , anxious or make little changes
  • Vaginal bleeding may occur, Vaginal bleeding is not necessarily a present manifestation, but it can be a sign of an extra-intra-uterus pregnancy or miscarriage. Therefore, women should contact their doctor immediately if they are found to have vaginal bleeding
  • The body's blood volume is increasing, the pregnant woman's heart is pumping 50% more blood per minute for the baby
  • The uterus inside the pelvis gradually enlarges as the fetus develops during the 8th week of pregnancy


During the 8th week of pregnancy pregnant women may feel sadness and anxiety
