During your pregnancy week 16, you will feel a real boost of energy! On the other side, the baby keeps developing and becomes more and more agile: he is already able to suck his thumb.
Symptoms Of Pregnancy Week 16
You may feel your baby move! Most women have this experience for the first time between the 16th and 20th week. This is often called flapping or twitching.
The belly, that gradually rises in the abdomen as your uterus expands, can cause some unpleasant, but temporary, gastroesophageal reflux.
The proportions of the body are more and more respected: the legs are longer than the arms. The skeleton becomes denser thanks to the calcium extracted from Mom’s blood.
Baby gains in volume and now measures almost 14 cm and weighs about 100 grams.
