This is the week you may just feel the very first fluttery movements… don’t worry if you don’t though. It’s more common for ‘quickening’ (as these first sensations are called) to happen later.

Your baby now has finger nails and toe nails, eyebrows and eyelashes

The hair that will cover your baby until the last week or so of pregnancy – called lanugo – starts to form. This hair is very fine, more like down, and it probably serves as some form of insulation and protection for the skin.

By now you will be visibly pregnant.

You may feel your heart beating ‘louder’. This is because there is a lot more blood in your body than normal. (about 20-25% more)
