You will now gain approximately half a kilo per week, which you will likely start to feel in your feet and legs. Make sure you get enough rest and wear good flat shoes.
The baby can now also be felt more clearly from the outside, which of course is fun for the partner.
Thanks to a better blood circulation of your body you can feel more like having sex. It may be that this drive for sex changes enormously. This is because of the large amount of pregnancy hormones that are sometimes present in peaks. Having sex during pregnancy isn’t harmful.
The baby now has a rhythm of sleeping and being awake. In order to grow properly he/she still sleeps most of the day, up to 20 hours! Your baby is now approximately 30 centimeters long and weighs around 550 grams, about the size of a cantaloupe.
The balance organs in the child's ears are developed and as big as in an adult. Around this week, the eyes open. Your baby already has fine eyelashes and eyebrows. The rapid eye movements, which an adult experiences when he/she is dreaming, are now also starting in the child. Your baby’s movements are becoming increasingly powerful and this allows your partner to feel the baby move when he/she places his/her hands on your belly.
