The reality star also added an explanation about the boy's development.
The update read: "Your baby's eyelids, which have been fused shut, can now open and close, and she may blink in response to light."
It continued: "If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, you may feel her respond with a burst of flutters and wiggles."
Amy also shared: "Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on."

Fans rolled into the comments to ask Amy questions about her update.
One sharp-eyed fan spotted an odd detail in the update text.
They asked: "Amy, why does it say 'she' instead of he? I thought it was a baby boy."
A second fan offered an explanation to the user's question: "I've used this app for my pregnancies and they say 'she' like a general term. You can set it to gender for the facts and information they give you."
A fan asked if there were any name updates, and an Instagram user answered: "She was going to name him John, but now she's not sure."
Other fans offered their enthusiasm and support as one wrote: "13 weeks left if all goes well, I hope so for you!"
Amy previously revealed to The Sun exclusively that while she has cut back on cigarettes during her pregnancy, she is still smoking.
The reality star also noted that she has been eating healthier.
Amy told The Sun: "I'm not drinking alcohol. I used to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day, like 20, now I'm down to about five a day. I'm trying to cut down."
She added: "I feel like I'm actually losing weight with this baby because I'm eating right."
Amy shared: "Gage's favorite foods are green beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and tuna fish. That boy will eat tuna salad every day if I let him.
"He eats healthy so I eat healthily. But I do have sugar here just in case my sugar gets low, because with this baby my sugar drops into the 40s, with Gage it was always high."
The star concluded: "I asked my doctor, 'Hey is it okay if I lose weight'. And my doctor said yes, as long as the baby gains it."
CONCERN FOR TAMMY
Meanwhile, as Amy thrives in her second pregnancy, fans remain alert and concerned for Tammy, 35, as she spends time in rehab.
As a new picture of Tammy and Amy was released for the TLC show, fans spotted a heartbreaking detail.
In the photo, the two sisters posed next to each other.
Amy smiled proudly, wearing skin-tight jeans to show off her amazing progress.
Although, as fans praised Amy's progress, they were extremely concerned for Tammy.
As the photo resurfaced on Reddit, fans were alarmed by Tammy's appearance.
One wrote: "Amy looks amazing! She's made some real progress but Tammy is just getting worse."
Fans have been begging Tammy for a health update on her Instagram.
The 1000-Lb Sisters star has been in rehab for quite some time and recently shed over 100lbs.
One wrote on a recent post: "We would really love a life update, please."
Although Tammy did not respond, another fans wrote: "I hope she is okay."
A second added, "Take care of yourself," as a third chimed in, "You look good Tammy, but you need to do better for yourself, your family, and your nephew!"
A third posted on her Instagram: "She's gained weight again. I think so, at least."
Back in March, fans were additionally alarmed with Tammy's health after spotting something on the star's forehead.
Fans were concerned about Tammy's receding hairline and how that potentially reflected on her health.
Where she was praised for "looking good" on Instagram, other trolls took to Reddit to comment on the star's health.
The thread kicked off: "That hairline is getting impressive."
Other internet trolls cruelly noted that Tammy's forehead looked "disturbing."
