You are now
You are now
Exciting times. Your baby is becoming more active and your womb may now be large enough for the first flutters to be felt against your tummy. Have you felt any movements yet? Your baby's weight has doubled in the last two weeks yet is still small enough to fit in your hand.
See how your baby grows in our week by week image gallery.
If you or your partner haven't tried talking to your baby yet - this is the perfect time to start. Lie in a quiet room with no other distracting noises and start talking. You can kiss goodbye to your waist (for now) as your womb is rising and is now about halfway between your tummy button and your pubic bone, pushing your tummy out. Maybe time to go shopping for maternity clothes if you haven't already.
It's normal to need the loo more in pregnancy, but if you're also feeling a burning sensation when you pee, you may have a urine infection called cystitis. It's common during pregnancy but see your doctor.
If you're exercising through your pregnancy, that's great news, but take it easy. Your ligaments are softer and stretchier - so be careful with any sudden movements or strenuous exercise, as strains and sprains can be more likely. Also, stay away from smoky atmospheres. Passive smoking is a risk factor for low birth weight babies.
Pregnancy tips: getting hot flushes? These are most likely due to increased levels of progesterone which encourages the blood vessels to dilate. Your metabolism increases in pregnancy too, creating extra heat. Wear layers that you can take off easily. Avoid eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol, and caffeine too as these can all encourage hot flushes. Phew.
