I'm 14 weeks pregnant, and most of the morning sickness has gone away. I'm feeling back to normal but i have started getting really intense headaches and heartburn. My stomach is showing now and im not as hungry as i was in the first trimester.
If you could have a peek inside your uterus at this time you'll see
your baby making all manner of funny facial expressions. With the brain
now allowing for lots more deliberate movements, your baby is figuring
out how to control the muscles in the face and is squinting, frowning
and even pouting. No smiling yet though, that won't happen until around 4
or 5 weeks after the birth, and it's definitely worth noting in your
Your baby's sex organs are becoming more obvious and the difference
between boys and girls is much more apparent. Although it's still very
early, and you probably won't have a chance to find out your baby's
gender until your next scan at around 20 weeks, the chance of
successfully determining the sex of a fetus increases from 46% at 11
weeks of pregnancy, to 90% at 14 weeks gestation.
Your baby has been swallowing amniotic fluid and urinating for the
past couple of weeks, but now the intestines are producing meconium
which will form your baby's first bowel movement. Unlike normal baby
poops which are usually quite soft and range from bright yellow to dark
brown in color, meconium is a green, sticky, tar-like substance that's
very difficult to clean up off of those newborn baby butt cheeks!
The lanugo covering your baby's skin starts to get thicker now, and
hair also starts to grow on the head and eyebrows. While some babies are
born with a full head of hair, others are born almost bald. In some
cases, even babies born with long and thick hair can become bald within
the first few months after birth, and the new hair might be an entirely
different color and texture to what it was before. It's not clear why
some babies are hairier than others, but an old wives tale suggests that
you'll experience heartburn if you're carrying a hairy baby!
