Your pregnancy, month by month

Fourth month

- Your baby

Your baby moves quite a bit and you may start to feel him moving. Do not worry, however, if you don’t feel anything yet; experiences vary significantly from one woman to the next, and it usually takes longer to feel the baby moving in your first pregnancy.
 

Your baby’s head, very large during the first months, is now more in proportion with his body. Your baby’s brain structures develop and your baby becomes sensitive to touch.

Your baby becomes covered with a thin blanket - the “lanugo” - and his first hair start to grow. His body hair and nails grow. His eyes stay closed, protected by the eyelids.

By the end of the fourth month, your baby is almost 20 cm (8 inches) long and weighs around 250 g (almost 9 ounces).

- You

Your belly starts to show and those most observant around you will start to notice a change. You are glowing and are in top form. Enjoy it!
