There is little change compared to last week. Most of the baby's growth now is weight gain.
He might be over the halfway mark in terms of length but he still needs to put on nearly ten times his present weight! From now on, your baby will gain around 60 grams a week. You will put on around 500 grams a week. That´s perfectly normal.
Your uterus comes up to your navel now and growing at quite a rate. Your bump seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day.
With your uterus growing so quickly, you could find you get round ligament pains. These feel like a stitch or shooting pain in the side of your uterus. You're likely to find this happens more when you've been too busy. The only remedy is to lie down and rest.
The baby's skin is no longer transparent. White blood cells are developing, which are vital to your baby's immunity against disease and infection. The tongue and organ of balance are fully developed. The baby will start pulling faces to exercise his facial muscles.
A baby girl´s internal reproductive organs are now fully developed. Her ovaries contain millions of eggs. She will lose a lot of them before birth, when she will still have around 500,000.
