You probably feel like you’ve been pregnant for a long time, but your baby still has a lot of growing and maturing to do.

Your unborn baby is about 13 to 16 inches long now and weighs about 2 pounds.

During this trimester, your unborn baby’s eyes have been gradually moving to the front of her face and her ears have moved from the neck to the sides of her head.

She goes through cycles of sleep and wakefulness, and has been developing sucking and swallowing reflexes for her life outside the womb.
