Baby Ramey’s Progress

Your baby is on the move, and you may start to feel it! Your baby weighs almost three ounces (.08 kg) and is close to 5 inches (13 cm) in length. As this week begins your baby has fingernails, and the hair on his or her head is starting to grow. Although baby's brain is still tiny, it is beginning to send signals to muscles that allow arms and legs to begin moving. The motion, called "quickening" can be slight or more robust, but don't be alarmed if you don't feel it this week--you will soon enough.

Your Body This Week

Your uterus has grown significantly by now, weighing close to 9 ounces (.25 kg). If you're starting to experience what feels like flutters or butterflies in your stomach, relax--it's just your baby moving. Around this time, you may experience some nosebleeds or bulging veins in your legs. This is because the volume of blood in your body has been increasing, which stresses your small capillaries and other vessels. How about some good news? Your uterus has shifted a bit so you may no longer feel the need to urinate as often.
