Your baby at 14 weeks

At 14 weeks, the baby is about 85mm long from head to bottom.

Around now, the baby begins to swallow little bits of amniotic fluid, which pass into the stomach. The kidneys start to work and the swallowed fluid passes back into the amniotic fluid as urine.

You at 14 weeks

How much weight you put on in pregnancy depends on your weight before you get pregnant. Most women gain between 10kg and 12.5kg. But gaining too much or too little may cause health problems for you or your baby. How much weight will I put on in pregnancy?

Smoking in pregnancy harms your baby and quitting will benefit you both.
