Even in the second week of your pregnancy you are not pregnant, just like in the first week, but that moment is getting closer.

You can have a 20-week ultrasound made, but it is certainly not compulsory. During this ultrasound, a physical examination is done with your baby. In this way possible deviations can be detected.

The weight of your baby has already increased considerably since you are 22 weeks pregnant. Currently, your baby weighs about 440 grams and is as tall as a papaya (28.5 centimeters).

Now that you are 26 weeks pregnant you have reached a small milestone again. Your child is now viable! The chance that your baby can survive outside the womb is 81%.
