Here's what Siegfried is up to now in Auntie Vanessa's tummy
Because Auntie Vanessa's uterus is expanding and putting a great amount of pressure on her abdomen, she might get stretch marks... Her weight gain may also be taking a toll on her body at this point. Many pregnant women experience backaches, bladder problems, sore feet and fatigue that affect their daily routines. Vanessa may also have some nasal stuffiness or nosebleeds.
Vanessa's baby's (Siegi's) face is basically complete now. The fetus's eyes are close together on the front of his face and they are still shut. Sig's ears have moved into their final position on the sides of his head. Where they are now is where they will be when your Siegi is born! Hair will continue to grow on his scalp and his eyelashes are well developed. Most of Siegi's features look the same as they will at birth. Because Siegi is getting plumper, he no longer has room in Vanessa's tummy to do cartwheels and somersaults.
