Being pregnant, again, and now having a blog this time around, I knew I had to do a pregnancy series! Introducing “Pregnancy at a Glance – Month by Month “ Hopefully you’ll find a nugget of wisdom here or there. (This post has zero affiliate links)
Pregnancy at a Glance – Month by Month
Pregnancy Month 6
What Mom may be Feeling:
This may be your “perfect” month! Why? Because you’ll most likely look “pregnant” now and NOT like you just had a big lunch. You are now in the throes of your second trimester and hopefully you are energetic and feeling good! Ready to take on the world with a baby in tow!
Another BEST part about this month is that guaranteed you will feel the baby move around! I think that this is the best part about pregnancy, which I think most women would all agree with. Nothing seems more real that a little person is growing inside you then a flutter in the womb. First time that you do feel the baby move it will feel like butterfly nerves in your stomach or a gas bubble moving through your intestines. What you can “feel” for is a repetitive movement in the same area. That is probably baby moving.

Baby’s Growth and Development for this Month: Week 23-27
Baby weigh’s a little over one pound at the beginning of this month. By the time you hit the end of this month, Baby will be almost two pounds in weight! Growing so fast! Baby can make out an underwater version of your voice, your heart beat, and stomach. Baby also does regular intervals of sleeping and awaking. Towards the end of the month it will be awake with eyes open! Click here to check out Babycenter.ca baby video for an inside look at baby.

If You Have Older Children at Home:
This is a great month that the actual roundness of your pregnant belly will now be a place that your older kids can rub and literally see, that mom is changing and growing — “Why?” because there’s a baby in there. I’ve found the bigger the belly gets the more excited and more “real” to the older kids a new baby becomes. I LOVE this video that literally shows how a women’s body changes inside while growing a baby! I feel like shouting “See, this is why I sit and pant for breath sometimes! I’m not being dramatic! I’m just pregnant!” 🙂 Click here to check out “how your body changes” video.
