Pregnancy Calendar - Pick a Week!
20 Weeks Pregnant
Congratulations, you've made it to the half-way point!
This week your baby is the size of a banana.
It's time for your 20 week scan, which can identify any anomalies in your baby's development. Your baby's sex is now visible on the scan, so should you choose to find out ahead of time, now is your chance.
A more positive symptom of pregnancy (enjoy the perks ladies) that you may experience throughout your second trimester is accelerated hair and nail growth. Your hair will be feeling thicker and fuller than normal, and growing fast. However, although your nails will be growing quicker than usual they may turn brittle and dry. To combat brittle nails, try keeping your nails shorter and filing out splits before they make their way down the nail. Gelatine capsules and prenatal vitamins containing biotin (both safe during pregnancy) have been found to strengthen nails.
20 weeks to go!
