My Pregnancy Week 13Brought to you by
Your baby is now about the size of a peach, measuring a little less than three inches and weighing approximately a full ounce!
The most remarkable thing about week 13 is that his little body is finally starting to catch up to his head in size, as his head now only accounts for one-third of his total size. If you are having a girl, she will have more than two million eggs in her ovaries by week 13.
His teeth are in place under his gums, waiting to come out during teething, which can start as early as three months, or as late as twelve months. (Note: Some babies can even have one or two teeth showing when they are born!)
Veins and organs are visible through your baby’s skin, which is still paper thin and transparent. Her intestines are forming villi, which aid in peristaltic movement and digestion; and her pancreas has even begun to secrete insulin! Her vocal cords are also beginning to develop.
