Your Body at 18 Weeks

If you’re feeling a little tickle in your belly it could be your baby moving around! You may not realize at first what it is but soon you will definitely be able to tell what those little flutters are. Here’s what else is happening with you:

  • Leg Cramps. Help fight them off by making sure you stay hydrated and by doing some stretching.


  • Swollen Hands and Feet. A normal amount of swelling is normal. Try to rest and kick up your feet as much as possible. Adding a bit of lemon to your water can help as well.
