Feeling Baby Move: Weeks 18-21 of Pregnancy | Parents

Feeling Baby Move: Weeks 18-21 of Pregnancy | Parents


-At 18 to 19 weeks, your baby is now about
the size of a mango. Her bones are becoming harder.
Over the couple of weeks, a fine layer of hair
called lanugo covers her skin under the vernix, a white
creamy substance that covers the skin of the fetus. The
hair helps keep her warm until she develops an adequate
layer of fat. Baby’s tiny fingers now have unique fingerprints.
She has more control over her movements and you might
be able to feel her kick with legs that are now longer than her arms. She’ll start giving
you a low jabs at regular intervals which you might
be able to feel especially if this is your second
or third pregnancy. If you’re a first time Mom, you
might not notice the kick until you reached 22 weeks,
you’re halfway through your pregnancy when you pass your
20th week your baby is as big as a coconut. He may have
thin eyebrows and a sprouting some hair on this head
this week. Behind his eyelids, his eyeballs are rolling from
side to side perhaps in response to your singing. His
skin now response to touch and if you put pressure
on your belly, he’ll move away or push back. If
you have an ultrasound this week, you can find out
whether you’re having a boy or a girl if your little one cooperates and faces the camera.
