Week 20: Congratulations, you now have a mini-baby!
Fetal development in pregnancy week 20:fetus in fifth month
This week you're carrying about 10.5 inches and 10.5 ounces of solid baby-miracle-goodness! Their little delicates bones continue to ossify and toughen while their itsy bitsy finger and toe pads are finishing up. Your little monkey now has teeth buds, although they’re hidden beneath the gum line. And finally! Their limbs have reached their relative proportions—no more alien baby! Their cute pink lips are more defined, and might be helping out in a bit of prenatal thumb-sucking. If you have a little boy, then their tiny testes are descending, though they have not yet passed the abdominal wall. What’s more, eyelashes and eyebrows are also visible. At this point, your little one really looks like a miniature baby—and we do mean miniature as your little swimmer currently weighs a mere eighth of their final birth weight. With half the pregnancy behind you, the most significant gains are yet to come!
Last Saturday, we went to see Dr. Aziz for monthly check up. I only gained 1kg and total weight gain for 5 months is 2kg!! He's very concerned since i gain only 2kgs n my tummy is consider small for 5 mths. But alhamdullilah when he did the scan, the baby develop accordingly and now weigh 400grams and the head to toe measurement pun ok. Masa time pregnant with Little Ranger dulu tiap2 bulan pun naik..kehkehekh..sampai over gitu..takpa janji my lil princess sihat mental fizikal and cukup sifat.
opps did i say lil princess?? yes correct, 2x dr aziz scan and the result still the same. and he showed us the 2 lines indicating its a vagina. i dun mind actually gal or boy..janji semua selamat and sihat. amin. Pandai abang dia teka gender dalam perut mummy kan...
