As you enter into week 20, you may start to feel your baby move as his or her tiny limbs are now nicely defined and freely in motion. Your baby’s first little movements, those flutters, are also known as quickening. This is a very important milestone. Make sure you jot this exciting achievement down and inform your health care team at your next visit.
Under the vernix, sheets of skin are beginning to build and unify as your baby’s skin is maturing. Tiny nails and subtle wisps of hair are coming into sight. Your baby now weighs about 8 ounces and is 6 inches long, the length of a yellow summer squash.
Smile, you’re at week 20!
