14 Weeks Pregnant
All About Baby
At 14 weeks your baby is a regular wiggler, but because of his small size you probably won’t feel it yet. Your baby-to-be’s face is becoming more distinguishable as his eyes move closer together and his ears move closer to their final positions. He’s also growing soft baby hair all over his body, which is thought to help anchor developing skin, as well as forming hair on his eyebrows and scalp. He may hiccup too, even though his lungs are filled with fluid, not air.
At your doctor’s visit, ask to hear the baby’s heartbeat. At this point, using a Doppler they should be able to hear the tiny beating. Or beatings, if you’re carrying twins or more (“What? Triplets?!?”).
