Each week of your pregnancy brings some new considerations, and here are a few for your eighth week:
- In your quest for friendly food, try some fruit. It has great nutritional qualities, and it doesn't produce those horrible cooking smells.
- In general, whether it's fruit, crackers or plain noodles, you might want to focus on foods you don't have to cook, at least for a few weeks.
- You might become light-headed or faint. Your body doesn't have enough blood right now because it's preparing to feed the baby. So be alert to bouts of light-headedness, and prepare to take a rest if the faintness comes on.
