Your baby is developing in many significant ways this week. Learn what is going on with baby as well as how to boost your own energy and travel safely while pregnant.
You'll start feel your baby's fluttering movements (called quickening) between now and 22 weeks. Get ready, mama: Feeling him kick is one of the most magical parts of being pregnant.
Kicking can feel faint or stronger from day to day. You may go a few days without feeling a thing, and then suddenly think a little Olympian gymnast is in your belly. Don't worry! Those flips and flops are totally normal.
Your baby can hear you! Her ears are developing and she's sensitive to sound, so you may want to serenade, talk to or play music for the little one--and avoid loud, sudden noises if possible, because they may startle him or her. (She'll likely be comforted by the sound of your voice, even though she won't know what it is or understand what you're saying just yet.)
Your baby's kicks are much more defined now than before. Yes, there really is a tiny person growing inside of you!
