18 Weeks Pregnant


Your baby at 18 weeks pregnant:

Week 18 pregnency

Your baby is now the size of a sweet potato about 5.6 inches long and weighs about 6.7 ounces. Your baby is now growing rapidly, that is may be the reason you feel more hunger.

  • Your baby’s hair and eyebrows are getting bushier.
  • Do you know? Your baby is now yawning, sucking, swallowing, hiccupping, twisting, rolling, and your baby is big enough that you notice her kicking too.
  • Her lungs are developing gradually with tiny air sacs called alveoli
  • You baby also swallows about a liter of fluid a day, this includes her urine that she pees into the amniotic fluid.
  • Your baby is crossing her legs and moving around.
Your pregnancy symptoms at 18 weeks pregnant:
  • Your breathing becomes faster as well as deeper when you breathe in and out. Do not worry, as you and your baby will get enough oxygen.
  • You are more prone to lower back pain. Try to walk on flat sandals with good posture, and when you sit down keep a pillow behind your back to give your back the support.
  • Your skin becomes dry and itchy on arms and legs, apply a moisturizer to protect you from itching and flaking. You may also get rashes in your groin area and underarms; taking regular showers will help to stay comfortable with it.
  • Legs cramps due to dehydration can be relieved with taking more fluids.
  • Your baby kicks become stronger, as the baby progresses.
  • The most annoying pregnancy symptom is swollen hands and feet. As long as it is not severe, nothing to worry.
  • Increased pressure on the veins cause nosebleeds in some women.
