In the next few weeks, the baby will grow and gain weight, almost double of his/her body weight. Do not worry as the fat will deposit all over, to fit the normal body frame. The baby’s face is fully formed and the fat will get deposited under the skin in the coming weeks. Aren’t you excited to see those chubby cheeks and dimple chin? From this week, you can also hear the heart beat of your sweetie pie with a stethoscope.
The ideal weight of the baby is approximately 500 grams (1.10 pound)
Along with the baby, you will also gain weight for good. As the belly enlarges, your centre of gravity shifts and may leave you feel clumsy. As pregnancy progresses, your belly button may stick out which will revert to the former state after child birth.
This week, there are some little challenges coming your way in the form of pregnancy symptoms: fuzzy brain, swollen feet, leg cramps, hyperpigmentation on the face (disappears post pregnancy), insomnia, aches and tingling feel on the hands. It is not a rule that all pregnant women experience the above symptoms; as pregnancy is a unique experience, it differs for every woman.
