You are now
You are now
Get ready for a major growth spurt. The development of your baby's brain, senses and nervous system is pretty intensive right now, so eating well is really important. Watch out for those kicks too, as your baby moves in reaction to bright light and sound - ouch!
See how your baby grows in our week by week image gallery.
Have you booked your antenatal classes yet? Don't leave it too late. Most classes start when you're around seven months pregnant. Popular courses may already be full - but you could try and squeeze in if there's a cancellation. Has your partner felt the baby kick yet? This is great as he'll feel even more involved in the whole pregnancy and bonding process. Many mums-to-be notice their nails are stronger in pregnancy. Make the most of it by treating yourself to a manicure and pedicure - it'll relax you too. Or if you fancy something even more soothing, why not go for an aromatherapy oil massage. But check the oils are safe during pregnancy.
If you work, your employer can't treat you unfairly; dismiss you; or select you for redundancy for any reason connected with your pregnancy, childbirth or maternity leave. If you think this has happened, you can bring a claim in an Employment Tribunal.
If your family receives income-based Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support or Working Families Tax Credit you can claim a refund for your travel to antenatal appointments. Claim at the clinic, or fill in form HC5 available from the clinic or your local social security office.
