At 18 weeks pregnant, your baby is the size of a bell pepper. They’re developing stronger muscles and bones.

Your body has likely been changing a lot. You’re probably ready for some new clothes. You may notice swelling in your feet and ankles. Often this is just a symptom of pregnancy. But tell your provider about any sudden or severe swelling.

You’re still going to prenatal visits about once every four weeks. Coming up is your anatomy scan ultrasound. This midpregnancy ultrasound looks closely at the fetus’s body to see how development is going.
