The Stomach Is Not Round At 5 Weeks Gestation?
I am now 5 weeks pregnant. Why does the stomach above the navel really come in? So the shape of the stomach isn’t that round? I wonder why?
Hallo Suci, thank you for the question.
I, Dr. Rio, will try to answer your question.
The complaint that you feel, I don't think is a thing that leads to a diagnosis / disease. Based on the age of your new pregnancy 5 weeks there has been no significant changes in your uterus / uterus, and the uterus is located between the lower part of the navel to the suprapubic (close to pubic hair). Regarding your complaints as long as there are no other significant complaints such as abdominal pain, high fever, loose stools, difficult bowel movements, etc. I don't think it is a problem or it is only you who misjudged it.
At the age of 5 weeks is the beginning of the development of your prospective newborn, there will be many changes in you and the development of your fetus. For you what might happen is that the changes in your breasts will feel enlarged and have a slight pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, frequent urination, etc. The size of your fetus at 5 weeks is about the size of a bean so that you won't see anything from the outside.
For that at this young gestational age you can do are:
Get plenty of rest, limit activity. Avoid excessive consumption of tea / coffee. Meet the nutritional needs of the mother and fetus giving multivitamins, as folate, iron are also needed according to doctor's instructions. Evaluate your previous family and illness history, because your doctor may ask about this. Take care of your lifestyle, avoid alcohol, cigarettes, or indiscriminate drug consumption. Control your pregnancy regularly and periodically, see your doctor and midwife. That's all the answers I give, hopefully you answer.
Thank you, I hope you and the baby will be given health always :)
