5 weeks pregnant: Fast facts
Snuggled deep in your uterus, your baby is about the size of a sesame seed and looks like a tiny tadpole.
Your baby's heart and circulatory system are forming! This week, the heart will start to divide into chambers, beat, and pump blood.
If you don't have a doctor or midwife you love, search your insurance plan and ask moms you know for recommendations.
It's okay to have coffee, but skip refills. Limit caffeine to 200 mg a day – about what's in a 10-oz cup of brewed coffee.
Your diet is key for your health and your baby's. Focus on fruits and veggies, lean protein, dairy products, and whole grains.
