Pregnancy

      Your 18th week

      Your Baby

      Your baby has more distinct facial features. In girls, the ovaries develop 5million eggs. You can feel the movements of your child at times but truth is, your baby is sleeping most of the time. It now measures about 14 centimetres and weighs about 155 grams.

      Your body

      Can you feel the first stirrings of your baby now? It feels like a slight tremor/flutter or even bubbles that rise in the abdomen. These are the special experience from the first movements of your child. More movements will follow soon.
