The Ears have started to move upward into their final position.

The Eyelids have been developing and are currently sealed closed. They will stay like this until about the 26th week.

The Neck is lengthening allowing the fetus to move its head.

The Diaphragm has developed and is able to move.

The Placenta is now circulating food and waste and will continue to grow larger as the pregnancy progresses.

The Ovaries or Testes are starting to develop.

Significant changes are taking place that enable your baby’s sexual organs to develop. The ovaries or testes now begin to form, influenced by hormones. However, each sex appears the same at this stage. As your baby continues to develop, your uterus is growing. You may begin to notice some discomfort around your pelvis as your body begins to accommodate your growing uterus. You may experience some minor aches and pains, but this is nothing to worry about. The ligaments and muscles of your pelvis are stretching to fit your growing uterus. If the pain becomes crampy, like period pain, and if there is any bleeding, you should consult with your doctor.

Your baby’s limbs are more developed now. This enables your baby to move, and the hands and fingers can be clearly seen on a scan. Your baby continues to take on more of a human form as the neck lengthens and the head is seen as separate from the body. Since the neck is more developed and all the limb joints have formed, your baby can make several movements.

Your baby is beginning to rely a great extent on his senses inside the uterus. Key development is taking place now. Your baby can’t hear at this stage, but hearing will be one of the first senses to develop. Your baby is increasingly active, but your baby is still too light for you to be able to feel the slight movements it is making.
