Your baby’s getting big! Weight is now a tad over 5 pounds and is just over 18 inches long.

Your doctor or midwife will probably want to start seeing you every week until you deliver.

Because it’s so snug in your womb, the little person isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he or she kicks should remain about the same.

The next few weeks will be spent putting on weight as most of the basic physical development is now complete.

Wow – your uterus is about 15 times the size of what it was before pregnancy.

Your internal organs are starting to crowd, which is why you probably have to urinate more often and have heartburn and other digestive problems.

Your doctor may ask you to count fetal movements, to track your baby’s activity level.

You’ll want to start your birth plan now, if you haven’t already.  Pain relief from labour, breathing practices, etc.
