14 weeks pregnant

Your baby’s reproductive system is the site of most of the action when you're 14 weeks pregnant. If you’re having a boy, his prostate gland is developing. It you’re having a girl, her ovaries are moving down her abdomen into her pelvis. In addition, because the thyroid gland is now functioning, your baby starts producing hormones this week. By the end of week14 of pregnancy, the roof of your baby's mouth (palate) will be completely formed.
