Pregnancy week 20
How's the foetus during week 20?
Baby is swallowing
Your baby is about the size of a long banana, weighs about 300g and is around 25.6cm long: from now on it’s not a crown to rump measurement, but crown to heel.
The baby's swallowing more this week which is good practice for the digestive system. His body absorbs the water in the fluid and moves the rest into the colon.
In girls, the uterus is formed now and her vagina is developing. What's with my body: The belly button pop
Brace yourself for lots of unwanted advice now that you are clearly pregnant.
Your pubic hair could look darker, but will go back to its usual colour once the baby is born.
A black line of hair (linea nigra) may appear on your belly, but will disappear soon after birth.
Your belly button may pop out as your uterus presses up and outward.
