The Second Trimester

In this section, we will present information week by week about how your baby is growing, symptoms that you may be experiencing, thoughts to consider and tips for a healthy pregnancy.

Week 16

Welcome to week sixteen!

It is still really early but you may start to feel your baby move sometime between now and the next 4 weeks.

He/she is moving much more than you can feel, and if you do feel movement this early it will be due to a large dramatic move and not the little kicks you will feel later. So, if you feel movement one day and not again for several days that is entirely normal. We do not expect you to feel movement until 20 weeks. Every week your pregnancy and baby seem more and more real!

If you feel movement one day and not again for several days that is entirely normal because your baby is moving more than you can feel.
