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!

    12 weeks today! Our first child! I’m hoping what they say about feeling better the second trimester is true!! Thankfully no morning sickness, but it has been a rough few months!

    12 weeks 6 days! Both I and the father are wishing for a little girl! Hasn’t been easy so far. Nauseated a lot, sciatic nerve pains, cramps, and everything in-between. So many articles to read and many different opinions on everything, especially from co-workers. Have information pouring out my ears!

    12 weeks tomorrow! Reading all this gives me some peace of mind. My first baby. I am hungry ALL the time, very frustrating. mild cramping here and there but I have been blessed with no morning sickness. Sometimes I get severe night sweats. I did not know that it was a pregnancy thing!!! I thought it was because of the meds. I was taking lol. Does that eventually go away or what?

  14. Avatar of Kristin Kristin says:

    Yes!! That’s very normal. Now that you are at 12 weeks, your hunger will subside

    This is my first pregnancy and im hungry every two hours. If i dont eat I start to cramp then comes the nauseous feeling. This been going on for two months and im 12 weeks. I love that im having a little angel its just tiresome. For all mothers to be get rest. : )

    • Avatar of Squiggles Squiggles says:

      I was the same way. If I didn’t eat every couple hours I would feel sick. In the morning as soon as I woke up I had to drink a full glass of water and some crackers. Then within 30 minutes eat something more substantial like cereal or yogurt. Luckily that “morning” sickness feeling mostly went away by 16 weeks!

    My first pregnancy .According to my perceived conception month am 12weeks n 2 days but should be going to the doctor to confirm soon. I feel nauseated sometimes n some days I feel like I can move a mountain. Feel so hungry sometimes n sometimes I need to see someone eat to feel like eating. Fun n crazy experience so far hang in there though. Hoping for twins.

  17. It really fun to see how the baby develops as the weeks progress! I love to find new tips, and to figure out the do’s and don’ts of pregnancy!!!

    I got my first ultrasound at 8 weeks and have to wait until 18 weeks to get my next. Only six more weeks!

  19. I have been taking ginger tablets and drinking cola syrup….that seems to help a bit. Cola syrup can be ordered at walmart. Basically tastes like flat coke but more concentrated.
