Your Pregnancy, Week 14

You may have more energy now. Your discomforts may be easing up now, too. Just as you’re changing, so is your baby. He or she is continuing to grow.

Your baby is now about the size of a small lemon. His or her head is large in proportion to the rest of the body, but your baby’s arms and legs are starting to catch up and grow in length. Although you won’t feel it for a few more weeks, your little one is moving around in the amniotic fluid. His or her muscles and bones are getting stronger. And, a fine, downy-like hair, called lanugo, is starting to grow all over his or her body.
