The fun and exciting part is here now. You are in your 5th month now. You can feel the baby’s movement around this period. Most mothers feel the baby kicking by 18 to 20 weeks. First, you might mistake it for something else but slowly you will be able to distinguish between the bumps. You will also probably notice a pattern in the kicks.
Here’s what your little one has been up to this week:
Your baby is now the size of a ripe mango
Your baby has put on a bit of weight but is still all wrinkly. It will fill out with fat a few weeks before birth.

Your baby’s body is being covered with Vernix Caseosa. A mix of natural oils and dead cells to protect the tender skin from becoming all wrinkly due to being soaked in amniotic fluid.
It is now 6 inches in length and approximately 240 grams in weight just like a ripe mango.
