Home > Health Library > Week 24 of Pregnancy: What's Going On Inside
By week 24, you may have noticed some jerking movements inside your belly—or even seen them on the outside! Repetitive, jerky movements usually mean your baby has the hiccups. Hiccups are perfectly normal and can last anywhere from a minute to an hour.
Inside the uterus, your baby is enjoying some regular activities: thumb-sucking and opening and closing his or her eyes.
Wondering what your baby looks like at 24 weeks? Your baby is now about the size of an acorn squash. Average baby length is 8.3 in. (210 mm). And average baby weight is 1.4 lb (630 g).
Here are some of the important facts and developments around 24 weeks.
