This week of pregnancy, your baby is close to 13 inches in length and weighs almost 2 1/2 pounds. Your baby's eyelashes are present on his or her eyelids and your baby is becoming more sensitive to light, sound, taste and smell.

Changes in You:

You may start seeing your doctor every two weeks soon and at about 36 weeks of pregnancy, you'll likely switch to weekly visits. Your uterus continues to push on your bladder, reducing it's capacity. Since the muscles of your pelvic floor may not be able to prevent leakage, when you laugh, cough, or strain to lift something, empty your bladder often. This will also help in reducing your chances of getting a urinary tract infection.
