Congratulations mum, you’re now in your 2nd Trimester and things will start to settle down and hopefully you will be feeling a lot more energised and less errghhh, now is the time to enjoy your pregnancy. Baby Baby will be testing out those newly developed limbs and will be doing plenty of jerky arm and leg movements, although you are still unlikely to feel it at this stage.
If you have your scan this week then see if your baby is sucking their thumb, just so adorable!
Baby continues to grow and is the size of a nectarine about 7.4cm head to bottom.
Their ovaries or testes are now fully formed inside their body and genitals are forming outside. Mum Have you got a cute little baby bump yet mum? As baby continues to grow you will too from now as your womb grows upwards and outwards.
Some more good news is that your womb will also move away from your bladder, so your toilet trips should reduce too.
You may also be feeling a little friskier of late. No this isn’t your imagination but a result of more blood pumping around your pelvic area, apparently it can make you thirsty or horny – your choice a glass of water or more sex 🤷.
