You are now
You are now
Your baby's lungs are developing to prepare for that first big intake of breath. Your baby's head and body are now more in proportion and it's hearing more and more sounds from the outside world - why not play some classical music? Apparently babies prefer it. But which does your baby prefer: Mozart or Madonna? Give it a go.
See how your baby grows in our week by week image gallery.
Place two fingers across your tummy above your belly button - this is about the height of your womb at the moment. Having twins? They're probably giving you plenty of kicks by now. You may even be able to tell which movements are coming from which limbs. Maybe one twin is more active than the other. You're likely to have an antenatal appointment around now. Your midwife will be able to feel very clearly how your baby is lying. Most babies are still head up at this stage. Have you thought about your maternity leave options? If you're having twins you may need to take it sooner. For advice, see this section of Directgov.
Your baby: thought of any names yet? Maybe you've always had a favourite. Maybe you still have no idea. If you're looking for some inspiration, try a baby name book. They list most names and their meanings. You could draw up a top-ten list of girls' and boys' names, then whittle them down to your absolute favourites before the big day - this way you'll have lived with the names for a while.
