Fetus at Week 20Week twenty represents the halfway mark through the pregnancy. The hair on the top of the baby's head is starting to grow by this week and the baby is having the same sleep pattern as a newborn baby would have. If your baby is a girl the uterus of the baby is starting to develop during this week.
Maternal Changes on Week 20
As the uterus comes up to your belly button at this time, it will become an outtie from the pressure. You may notice the linea nigra which is a darkened line on your skin between your navel and pubic region. Do not worry this line will disappear after giving birth. The movements of the baby are becoming stronger and you can really feel it kicking around.
