14 Weeks Pregnant

Entering week fourteen, you may notice a number of new things in your body.

The development of baby

Ears have relocated to the head
Baby is urinating more frequently into the amniotic fluid
Movements may be more pronounced
Measures 6 inches in length and about 3 ounces in weight

The development of mom

If mom is a first time mom, she will start to feel baby moving around
now. Experienced moms generally feel that movement sooner.

What baby is feeling

Baby is surrounded by warm fluid that is cushioning it and helping it
move freely

What mom is feeling

The first time that you feel your baby move is a special one, so be sure
to let your partner feel it too - if they can.

Specific needs for the week

In order to be strong for labor, you might want to start a prenatal
yoga class. By learning how to balance your body, you will strengthen
your muscles and relax at the same time.

Specific concerns for the week

When you start to feel movement in your abdomen, this is a good sign
that your pregnancy is progressing normally. If you should feel
movements stop for a long time, talk to your doctor.

Special tip for the week
If you've found out the gender, start to make plans to decorate the
nursery in a style that suits him or her.
