This spell of your journey seems to be more relaxing, because in your body, now all hormonal movements slow down a bit; giving you a break off your long distress and disquiet.
Your baby now starts sucking & swallowing, which may involve sucking his/her own thumb too.
By this time, pregnancy hormones are now found with their little actions. That means now a great relief with no frequent urination, less nausea/vomiting and decreased weakness. You may get into constipation due to your uterus pressing over the intestines. To overcome, make certain your diet is rich in fibres and green, leafy vegetables.
Are the happiest moments not only for mothers but also for fathers as your kids now actually give external movements, which his father feels very closely feeling their kicks & listening to them. He/she is now alive!
Your stomach may have some tenderness with your belly button jutted out as the uterus is now at your navel. The line between your navel and pubic hair goes blackened. Do not panic, it would disappear after delivery.
Now baby is felt increasingly with more movements. Right time to schedule the ultrasound scans, as it now verifies foetal’s age.
The baby now grows with startlingly quick progress. You can feel his trembles with him coughing and hiccupping at all.
Your uterus now protrudes approx. 1.5-2 inches above the navel. You may have your doctor performing a Glucose Tolerance Test to prevent the gestational diabetes caused by all your strains during pregnancy. Again, there are little concerns, as it would go diminished with time after pregnancy.
