This week, the baby’s basic development is complete. From now on, the organs will grow to maturity. Sexual organs begin to develop, but it is still too early to know the gender. As almost all of your baby’s joints and muscles are completely formed, the baby now begins to move in the amniotic sac, but you will not yet feel these movements.
You will be able to hear your baby’s heartbeat clearly via a stethoscope or ultrasound scan. Many women liken an unborn baby’s heartbeat to the sound of galloping horses; to hear this heartbeat can be very moving for you emotionally.
Before pregnancy, the size of the cervix was the size of a small pear. Now it will be as big as a large orange. During this period, you should change your bra size as your breasts will continue to grow. You can wear maternity clothes or at least comfortable, loose clothing so as not to constrict your expanding body.
