In the first weeks of pregnancy, after the embryo has attached to the uterus, the amniotic sac and placenta also gradually form. Pregnant women may notice some of the first signs of pregnancy such as sore nipples, headaches, fatigue, and vomiting.
1. How does a pregnant woman change in the 4th week?
In the early weeks of pregnancy, the embryo attaches to the wall of the mother's uterus. The dividing cells give rise to all the organs of the fetus. At this week, your baby is probably just big enough to be seen on an ultrasound. The baby is very small at this time. You may not feel any difference, but the amniotic cavity is filled with fluid and the placenta carries oxygen and nutrients to nourish the developing fetus in your womb. Accompanying it is the yolk sac, which will allow the fetus to develop in the first weeks.

For most women, breast pain is the first physical sign of pregnancy - even before morning sickness. You may also become more sensitive to scents than before, vomit more, and feel tired. In addition, vaginal discharge may also be more abundant. Many pregnant women also complain of starting to feel headaches in the first weeks of pregnancy.

2. What should pregnant women do in the 4th week?
Pregnant women should try to eat healthily, choose a variety of foods from the recommended food groups, and drink at least six to eight glasses of water a day. However, pregnant women do not necessarily have to "Eat for two". Pregnant women only need 300 extra calories per day while pregnant and don't worry if food intake is reduced in the early weeks because of morning sickness. If the pregnant woman has eaten properly, the fetus will still receive all the nutrients it needs.

Note that pregnant women need to avoid toxins, chemicals, drugs, X-rays, alcohol or any other potentially harmful agents. The first few weeks of pregnancy are an important time for fetal changes and development.
