Now when I lay on my back, my stomach doesn't sink in as much. I think that "growth spurt" talked about in my 16 week email is happening. The pooch is definitely there. No more hiding it. I really look pregnant!
How your baby's growing:
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
