Your pregnancy, month by month
- Your baby
Your baby’s senses become active; he can now touch, feel, and hear, and is discovering taste by swallowing amniotic fluid. His eyes open and he is sensitive to light.
His body fills out thanks to the layer of fat that starts to build under his skin, and he loses his wrinkled appearance. During this trimester, your baby’s energy needs increase. His stomach and intestines are functioning.
By the end of this month, your baby weighs just over 1.5 kg (3 pounds) and measures about 38 cm (15 inches).
Your belly is becoming more and more unwieldy and you become easily winded by daily motions that seem more difficult than usual. You are tired and probably want to regain your previous physical ease. Be patient... you will soon be meeting your baby!
