Hello baby! Around the 18th or 19th week of pregnancy you may feel the flutters and stirrings of your baby's movements. If you have an anterior placenta (a placenta that implants at the front of your uterus) you may have extra cushioning that makes it difficult to feel your baby's movements until later. Don't worry if you don't feel anything yet!
Your baby's heart is beating about double what yours is (120-160 beats per minute). Your baby's first "moisturizer," called vernix, is forming on your baby's skin to protect it and help them keep in body heat.
