Baby is the size of: A peach
13 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.
