Week 14

What happens to you?

The hormonal changes in your body are becoming more apparent as you notice changes in your skin.  You may have developed a dark line down the middle of your abdomen called a linea negra.  The areola (dark nipple portion of your breasts) may have darkened and gotten larger.

Your uterus is now the size of a grapefruit.

You may feel hungrier than normal.  If your nausea and vomiting have stopped, you may be experiencing a return of your appetite by the end of this month.  Some women find that they get hungry more often when they are pregnant than they used to.  Eat a mini-meal or snack of some nutritious food if you're feeling hungry.  You don't want to gain too much weight too soon.

What happens to the baby?

The baby is now about 12.5 cm or 4.92 inches in length.  It is now producing urine and actually urinating into the amniotic fluid (This does not harm the baby or you).  It also practices "breathing" the amniotic fluid (the liquid in which the baby floats) in and out of its lungs.
