Your 16th week

      Your Baby

      Your baby is now able to perceive sounds and soon will recognise your voice and respond to it. The ultrasound can now inform you about the gender of your child. You can inform your doctor to take the necessary precaution measures as you go for your check-ups. Your baby is now just over 10 centimetres tall and weighs about 100 grams.

      Your body

      You will definitely imagine more than usual such as to be filling the role as a mother. Let this exciting task prepare you. If there are young children in your circle, you can seek contact and mingle with them. Your uterus has now grown to approximately the size of a grapefruit and contains enough amniotic fluid if necessary to carry out a test on amniocentesis. Talk to your doctor if it is necessary for you to undergo this form of prenatal diagnosis.

      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      If you have a sweet tooth, prepare a vitamin drink for yourself. This maintains your health, fills you up and is an alternative to unhealthy sweets or sugar products. You can prepare a smoothie with just 100 millilitres of orange juice with 100 grams of raspberries and half a glass of milk. Alternatively, mix 150 millilitres of milk with 100 grams of banana, a dash of lemon juice and sprinkle with a teaspoon of chocolate sauce.
