Growing Baby 17-20 wks

The baby is now growing quickly. The body grows bigger so that the head and body are more in proportion and the baby doesn’t look so top heavy. The face begins to look much more human and the hair is beginning to grow as well as eyebrows and eyelashes.

17-20

Your wife will probably feel your baby move for the first time around now. At first she will feel a fluttering or bubbling, or a very slight shifting movement, maybe a bit like indigestion. Later she will not mistake the movements and she can even see the baby kicking about. Often you can guess which bump is a hand or a foot and so on.
