My Pregnancy Week 12

Pregnancy Week 12

This week, your baby is almost the size of a lime, weighs almost an ounce, and measures almost 2.5 inches!

His eyes are now positioned in the front of his face, and his ears are in position on the sides of his head. Most notably, reflexes have begun! Your little one’s mouth is making sucking movements, his eye muscles clench, his toes curl, fingers and hands open and close, and he may even begin to suck his thumb. Though he is still too little for you to feel, he can feel you. If you were to apply pressure to your abdomen, your baby would squirm in response!

Her brain has been developing rapidly too. Nerve cells are multiplying, and synapses, or the small junctions across which nerve impulses pass from one nerve cell to another, are forming at an impressive speed. A little lower, her intestines are developing and will soon be moving into her stomach cavity. It’s incredible to think how far she has come in just a few short months!

    Virginia I didnt mean to name my unborn baby the same as u did (peanut). When i was pregnant from my daughter i named her jellybean its just better than saying it all the time.

    A month ago my little peanut was unrecognizable. And now he/she has arms, fingers, legs, toes. It was awesome seeing him/her jump around like if he/she had hiccups. Its so amazing to c a baby grow in your tummy.
