20 Weeks Pregnant

Congrats! You reached the halfway point in your baby journey. Your baby is now the size of a banana measures about 6.5 inches long and weighs around 10.2 ounces.

Your baby's skin is thickening and developing layers. Skin has an outer layer, the dermis, an inner epidermis, which is the thickest, and the subcutaneous bit, which is made mostly of fat. We like her growing thicker skin as she is still a bit see-through

Get the 20 week fetal anomaly scan to check everything is going fine with your baby.
