You are probably feeling better, have more energy and you may begin to “show.” You may notice a dark line (linea nigra) down the center of your abdomen. This will fade after your baby is born. If you already have a child, you may start feeling the baby move at about 14 to 16 weeks. Your baby is still very small, weighing about four to six ounces.
Your baby is approximately 6-7 inches long and weighs about 5 ounces.
Specific Instructions for this Month:
- Schedule an ultrasound for your next appointment.
We believe that prenatal visits are a critical part of your care. When there are no problems, it is reassuring to hear “everything is fine.” When there is a problem, your physician/midwife will address it. Feel free to ask questions and discuss your feelings.
