This Pregnant Body

Joyce, you are looking and feeling very pregnant, and no doubt getting to know that little one inside you a bit more with each new day. You may notice your baby moving more after you drink a cold beverage or eat certain foods. At this point in your pregnancy, your uterus has expanded and is now taking up more of your abdominal area. You may begin experiencing some heartburn, which is due to the increased pressure on your stomach and esophagus.

Your Baby

Your baby weighs about 1.2 pounds and is about 8.4 inches from crown to rump (or just under 12 inches from head to heel). His or her lungs have started secreting surfactant, the substance that keeps the moist, interior surface of the lungs from sticking together; and he or she is practicing breathing. Your baby's eyes are also watching for light and its ears are listening to your heart beat and your stomach growl.
