YOUR BABY

His skele­ton is com­plete and all his body parts are present and grow­ing. He’ll be suck­ing, swal­low­ing and yawn­ing. Am­ni­otic fluid will be fill­ing and emp­ty­ing from his lungs as his body pre­pares for breath­ing in­de­pen­dently af­ter birth.

YOUR BODY

You may no­tice that a line of pig­men­ta­tion – the linea ni­gra – has ap­peared on your ab­domen. You’ll feel hot due to ex­tra blood cir­cu­lat­ing in your body and, as your womb pushes against your blad­der, you may need to an­swer the call of na­ture more of­ten.
