At six months pregnant, an expecting mother experiences the continued growth of her uterus, which likely extends above her navel, according to the experts at Family Education Network. The baby also continues to grow rapidly, creating a shrinking living space for baby in the womb.
According to the Family Education Network experts, by the end of the sixth month of pregnancy, the baby may weigh as much as 2 pounds and measure over a foot long. A pregnant woman may be able to feel and observe more obvious fetal movement across her abdomen as a result of this increased size. She may also feel the lurch of harmless fetal hiccups, possibly a result of the baby swallowing or breathing amniotic fluid.
