Your pregnancy and baby guide : You and your baby at 14 weeks pregnant

Your baby at 14 weeks

At 14 weeks, the baby is about 85mm long from head to bottom.

Around now, the baby begins to swallow little bits of amniotic fluid, which pass into the stomach. The kidneys start to work and the swallowed fluid passes back into the amniotic fluid as urine.
