Can you believe that just a few weeks ago you could barely discern your baby's fluttering movements? By now, there's no doubt that you'll feel your little martial artist as he or she kicks, squirms, and somersaults in your belly. In fact, you'll be so attuned to your little one's movements that you'll know your fetus's sleep/wake schedules. This can be frustrating if they're different from your own, but just look at this as great practice for your baby's eventual arrival! The reason it's so easy to feel your fetus now is that your baby is much bigger. In fact, your little one weighs in at about one pound. And as your baby grows, he continues to prepare for the real world with ever keener senses. In particular, your fetus's hearing will allow him to discern loud, disruptive noises, like the dog barking or the vacuum cleaner. Exposure to these sounds in the womb will mean that your baby will unlikely be fazed by them once he arrives-which is good news for you! For more on your baby's impressive development, check back right here for your weekly video update.More »
