Week 16 – your week by week pregnancy

Your baby is now some 10cm long from crown to rump, about the size of an avocado, and weighs about 100g. In the next three weeks she’ll go through a tremendous growth spurt, doubling her weight and adding centimetres to her length. Your baby’s head is more erect than it has been, and her eyes have moved closer to the front of her head. Her circulatory system and urinary tract are in full working order, and she’s inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid through her lungs.
