Your baby is about 16 inches long and weighs 3-1/2 to 4 pounds!
Your Changing Body
Heartburn: Some mothers experience frequent heartburn due to the pressure of the growing uterus against the stomach.
The fundus (the top of the uterus), is now about one-third of the distance between the belly button and the sternum.
Constipation: may occur due to uterine pressure on the lower colon, and the hormonal slowing of peristalsis (the process of excreting waste).
Fatigue: You may start to feel just as tired as you were during the early weeks of your pregnancy :( This is due to uterine growth combined with increased maternal weight gain.
Breasts: Your breasts begin to prepare for lactation. You may notice a conciderable amount of breast growth this month! First colostrum, then milk is produced by tiny sacs deep within the breast tissue.
