Your baby’s development

You're 24 weeks pregnant and your baby now measures about 30cm (that’s about the length of a ruler) and weighs about 1lb 3oz. According to medical experts, your baby is also ‘viable’, meaning that if they were to be born now, they’d have a fair chance of survival in a special care baby unit.

You & your body

Your hormones are raging around inside you at the moment and you’re probably feeling quite emotional during this stage of your pregnancy. You can be hyper-sensitive about anything – from watching your favourite film to somebody drinking out of your favourite mug, and feeling your baby move is such a strange and amazing feeling that makes everything else seem so much more real.

Did you know?

Wearing high heels can make backache even worse. So it may be time to put them to the back of the cupboard and buy some flatter shoes for the next few months instead.
