One of the most significant milestones that your baby will achieve this week is that she now begins to blink and can appreciate light. However clarity of vision is yet to happen. She weighs an impressive 2.2 pounds by the time this week ends and measures close to 11.3 inches in length. She has now developed sweat glands while she continues to accumulate fat in preparation of life after birth which would happen in just a few weeks from now.



A range of symptoms like headache and oedema could well be attributed to the inreasing levels of progesterone which will now continue to increase through the pregnancy. The uterus begins to increase in size at the rate of 0.4 inches per week and this is the week when you will first experience Braxton – Hicks contractions.
