Baby is the size of: lemon

14 weeks                

         


Your baby is now about 6.7cm long from crown to rump and weighs nearly 23g, about the same as half a banana. Tiny fingerprints are now at the tips of her fingers. Your baby has sucking muscles in her cheeks, so when you poke your tummy gently she will feel it and start rooting. It's a rehearsal for the important instinct of searching for your nipple once she's born. 

If you're having a girl, she now has approximately 2 million eggs in her ovaries. She will have only a million by the time she's born. She'll have fewer eggs as she gets older, and by age 17, the number will have dropped to 200,000.

                   Baby, fetus at 12 weeks - BabyCenter
Your baby is about 5.4cm long from her crown to her rump and weighs slightly less than 14g. The big news this week is that your baby's reflexes are becoming more honed. She'll squirm if you prod your belly, although you probably can't feel her moving around yet. Fetal nerve cells have been multiplying rapidly and the neurological connections in her brain (synapses) are forming. She can close her fingers, curl her toes and clench her eye muscles. 

All the while, your baby's face is beginning to look more human. Her eyes, which started out on the sides of her head, have moved closer together. Her ears are almost in their final positions on the side of her head. Inside her body, her organs are performing more complex tasks. Her liver is making bile and her kidneys are secreting urine into her bladder. 

Your midwife can now feel the top of your uterus (womb), also known as the fundus, low in your belly. As you approach your second trimester, you may need to wear looser clothing. Soon you won't be able to fit into your old clothes any more.

Preggo
i just look fat...:(
Baby, fetus at 11 weeks - BabyCenter
Measuring from the crown of his head to his rump, your baby is now about 4cm long. He has all his parts, from tooth buds to toenails and his fingers and toes have fully separated. Your baby is busy kicking and stretching. His movements are so fluid they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as his body grows and becomes more refined. 


Most of your baby's critical development will tail off in the next couple of weeks. His main task during the next six months will be to grow larger and stronger, until he can survive on his own outside your uterus (womb).

oh baby! i'm pregnant!

IMG_9585
our little gummy bear
about a month ago, i got a terrible cold. i was suffering for 3 whole days. i was taking nyquil and having the strangest dreams.... then i realized i missed my period... by a lot. so i took a test on 11/30 before work. i could not believe my eyes. i thought i had peed on it too much! it immediately showed that i was pregnant. i was already in denial! i had to go to volunteer at the food bank that morning, but all i could think about was taking another test. i finally did, at lunch... at the el fenix downtown. i just had to know! of course, it showed up positive... well, it was suggested that i go ahead and take a digital test, just to be sure... so i did, and it came back pregnant too! holy shit! i called my dr's office and made an appointment. i was so excited! dave was excited and nervous. our family and friends are super excited. i couldn't wait to tell the world. we decided to wait until our dr. appointment which was scheduled the 19th of december. meanwhile, i started noticing all of those tell-tell pregnancy symptoms... fatigue, queasiness, etc. although, i've been queasy, i have only gotten sick once. then, came our first appointment. i was nervous that they would find something wrong, which i read was completely normal... well, everything was fine. the baby has a strong heartbeat and i found out i was exactly 8 weeks along! yay!  when you are pregnant, you always want to be further along than you are.
currently, i am 10 weeks and a couple of days. i thought it would be fun to do one of these each week to see what stays the same and what changes... so, here we go!


How far along? 10 weeks, 2 Days
Total weight gain/loss: Lost 5lbs. (probably because I stopped drinking!)
Maternity clothes? Nope
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I get super sleepy around 3pm and take a nap after work for about an hour. I sleep great at night when Dave is not snoring
Best moment this week: The queasiness has seemed to die down
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? I do miss drinking, but only when everyone around me is drinking. Other than that, I could care less for a beer.
Movement: Not yet—although, I sometimes have these gas bubbles that make me stop in my tracks

Food cravings: pickles, Sour Patch Kids, Pineapple, Mashed potatoes and gravy
Anything making you queasy or sick: cherry tomatoes, basil
Have you started to show yet: A little bump I look like I have a food baby, but this time, it is a real baby!
Gender prediction: No clue!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Weekly Wisdom: I guess I will take my own advice and nap while I can, because once the baby is here, I doubt I will be getting much rest.
Looking forward to: Getting a bigger bump & finding out the gender!
