Month 6: Weeks 21-24

Doctor visits

Tracking your baby’s growth and monitoring your health for signs of trouble are the focus of this month’s doctor visit. Make a list of questions you have about your body or your baby’s development, and make sure you understand the answers before you leave the doctor’s office.

Month 6 baby progress illustrationYour baby 

By the end of this month your baby should be about 8 inches long and weigh a pound and a half. He is probably moving around a lot and can respond to noise, such as your voice or music. By the sixth month, your baby also can open and close his eyes. The lungs and brain still need to develop more before he is ready to leave the womb.
