At two months pregnant, you might be feeling overwhelmed, excited, worried, happy — maybe even a mixture of these emotions, and more. That’s pregnancy for you.

Common Pregnancy Symptoms at Two Months Pregnant

When you’re two months pregnant, some commonly experienced pregnancy symptoms can include:

  • Mood changes
  • Morning sickness
  • Food cravings and aversions
  • Breasts get bigger
  • Fatigue.

Although not all of these pregnancy symptoms are pleasant, they are a normal part of being pregnant, and you may only experience some of them.

Mood changes: One of the reasons for these pregnancy mood swings is that your body is flooded with hormones, such as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), progesterone, and oestrogen. These hormones may also play a role in other pregnancy symptoms like constipation, heartburn, dizziness, headaches, and feeling hot.

Your moods might also fluctuate based on how you’re feeling physically. For example, if you are suffering from nausea, then it’s natural to feel a little down.

Morning sickness: In the first trimester, you might experience what’s known as morning sickness. Though it often occurs in the morning, this nausea and vomiting can actually strike at any time of day. The good news is that for many women, morning sickness subsides when you’re three months pregnant.

To help combat morning sickness, maintain a balanced diet, staying away from food that triggers your nausea, like greasy or spicy food, when possible, and go for smaller, more frequent meals to avoid an empty stomach. When you wake up in the morning, try eating some plain biscuits before getting out of bed to help stabilise your blood sugar levels. Rest, stay hydrated, and wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.

Cravings: Other pregnancy symptoms you might experience at around two months pregnant are food cravings and aversions. It’s not really clear why these preferences occur, and, although they might seem weird, they are very common during pregnancy. You may get a strange taste in your mouth, which some women describe as being metallic, or you crave new foods. You may even lose interest in food you loved before. Seek medical advice if you have cravings for non-food items like chalk or dirt.

Two Months Pregnant: Changes Inside and Out

Fetal development: When you’re two months pregnant, your baby’s nervous system is already developing and the foundations of the major organs are in already place. By 8 weeks of pregnancy, at the end of the month, your little one, now known as a fetus, has developed a tiny spine and limbs, and has started to grow the brain, eyes, and ears.

Changes to your body: At this stage, your body won’t look dramatically different, but your breasts may start to feel heavier and look fuller. You may also feel nauseous or tired.
