Pregnancy Calendar - Week 12
Your baby is now looking more like a human being and less like a bean. His lower body develops rapidly as blood and bone cells form. Your baby is also swallowing this week, practicing with the amniotic fluid.
You may be experiencing sleeplessness as a result of frequent toilet runs and anxiety about your pregnancy. Sleeping on your side will alleviate the pressure on your bladder and a glass of warm milk before bed will help you to relax and sleep. This week you will want to book your 18-week ultrasound scan to confirm your baby's due date and your baby's development.
