Pregnancy MomWhat Is Happening To Your Body

You will notice that you gain more weight in these next few weeks than you had previously as your baby is quickly increasing in size.

 

Remember that bothersome pregnancy symptoms — itchy skin, visible veins, hemorrhoids, urinary incontinence, leg cramps and other discomforts — will pass with your delivery of the baby. Right now, you may also feel as if your internal organs are crowded. They are. The best way to deal with these discomforts is to eat healthfully, exercise regularly, drink plenty of fluids, maintain good posture and rest whenever possible.

 

Remember to continue taking prenatal vitamins throughout this trimester.

 

Pregnancy BabyWhat Is Happening To Your Baby

Your baby measures about 15.2 inches (38.6 cm) long from head to heel, or roughly the length of squash. At this point your baby weighs roughly 2.5 pounds (1.1 kg).


Your baby’s sensory organs are well developed and he or she is beginning to regulate his or her own temperature. The bone marrow is now completely in charge of producing red blood cells.


Your baby’s lungs are also developed enough to breathe air, and it is urinating about half a liter of urine into the amniotic fluid daily.


Your baby has become more active and may give you strong kicks and punches. He or she should be moving at least 10 times an hour. If your baby moves any less, let your doctor know.
