You are now
You are now
Your baby is moving its arms and legs much more now - but you still won't feel it for a while as your baby is still so tiny. Although your baby is growing in length much more quickly at this time. Now about eight cms long, your baby is the size of a plum - and weighs about 60 grams. The placenta is now well-formed, though it's not yet doing its full job... it takes over fully in week 14.
See how your baby grows in our week by week image gallery.
Crying at the smallest thing? Don't worry, this is normal in pregnancy due to your increased hormone levels. If you're still feeling sick, the end is in sight. Most sickness and nausea starts to disappear by now, unless you're really unlucky. If you're still suffering, just remember, it's not forever - and you'll have a baby at the end! Your mood swings may calm down and you may start to feel less anxious as the risk of miscarriage now is considerably lower. You may want to start telling family and friends your exciting news this week. And if you want to take paid time off work for antenatal appointments, you'll need to speak to your boss.
You'll have an antenatal appointment around this time. This could be at the hospital clinic, or at a community clinic at your health centre or GP surgery. If you've been concerned about losing the baby, you should now be able to relax and look forward to enjoying the rest of your pregnancy. If you do have any concerns, talk to your doctor or health professional.
The big day: you've got your due date but remember this is only an estimate and the majority of babies don't come on their expected dates. So keep the estimated date in mind but don't expect your baby to abide by it!
