Your Baby’s Development:
Your baby finally weighs a pound this week and is about the size of a papaya. He or she has a full set of eyebrows and eyelashes, and there is probably some hair on his or her little head, too. His or her senses are really on target this week as well. Your baby can hear and taste, they can distinguish the difference between light and dark and he or she is now beginning to develop the sense of touch.
What You Should Expect:
Now that you have gotten used to your swelling belly, you may notice a few other things growing this week. This is the time when many women notice their feet growing larger—up to a size and a half bigger in fact. While some of the growth may be due to swelling, it is more likely a result of the pregnancy hormone, relaxin, which relaxes the ligaments, allowing your bones to slightly spread. Go ahead and buy those new shoes; your feet will most likely never return to their pre-pregnancy size.
