You may still be feeling tired and nauseous, but this should pass soon. You may have gained a little weight, about 2-3lb, about 10% of your total weight gain. Changes in hormones may result in mood swings and irritability. You could try yoga or putting your feet up and some camomile tea. You may feel a little dizzy at times due to pregnancy hormones affecting your insulin output.
Your baby is growing quickly at the moment. You still cannot tell the gender of your baby from a scan, as the sex organs aren't visible externally yet. Your baby will start to produce testosterone if it's a boy. Your baby's skin, in two layers, is transparent and covered with a fine down. The lungs, although developing, are still very immature.

Your baby would now fit into the palm of your hand. All the major body organs have formed and the most critical period in development has passed. The foetus can kick, punch and arch her body. Your baby can flex her fingers, form a fist and wrinkle her forehead.
