Your baby this week

 

This week, your baby is now around the size of an avocado, or 4.5 inches and weighs around 100 grams. In the next three weeks he/she will go through a tremendous growth spurt by doubling his/her weight and adding centimetres to his/her length.

Your baby’s facial muscles are now developed well enough to allow a variety of expressions. He or she is now most probably listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in his/her ears.

The skeletal system is continuing to develop as more calcium is deposited on the bones.

 

Your body this week

This week you might begin to feel twinges as your ligaments stretch in your pelvis and back. Backaches are an effect of pregnancy hormones.
Your baby is now large enough for his movements can be felt, this is especially true for more experienced mums as some first time mums don’t feel the movement until they are closer to 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Other symptoms that may surface this week include;
  • Bigger busoms
  • Constipation, due to your uterus pressing on your intestines.
  • Forgetfulness
  • Faster hair and nail growth
  • Dry, itchy, sensitive eyes
  • Glowing skin (pregnancy glow)
