My Pregnancy Week 13

Pregnancy Week 13

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.

    I’m just about 13 weeks pregnant with my second child. Just found out it’s another boy. That’s going to be interesting having two little boys running around. Wonder what the grocery bill will look like when they are teenagers. LOL! I hope they will be very close growing up and really good friends as adults.

    im 13 weeks today! I have to buy maternity jeans cause the sweat pants are not fashionable haha. I tried on every single pair of jeans i have and only 1 pair still fit. People keep making fun of me because they say i shouldn’t be in maternity pants yet But i enjoy not having my jeans cutting into my sides. 4 weeks and i go to a place 2 hrs away to find out the gender :)

      i’m 13 weeks today and i have noticed my pants don’t fit like they use to. i just told my bf that we need to get me a few maternity jeans cause i don’t wanna feel like i can’t breath or that i could be harming the baby. so don’t feel bad your not the only one going through this.

    I’m at 13 weeks to day I’m so excited I’m having a baby but have to say I didn’t think it could be this tuff being pregnant because I have a lot of morning evening and night sickness and I’m Geting a lot of headaches now an nothing is really helping them go away it wasn’t this hard at first but it seems like its Geting harder now. has any one had a hard pregnancy an if so what did you do to make it a lil easier?

    • Avatar of Shiloh JohnsonEditor Shiloh Johnson says:

      Yes, I don’t think I was prepared for how hard it was going to be either! I know some people love being pregnant, but it’s hard when you’re constantly sick, tired, and achy. It’s worse when the heartburn kicks in later on, lol, but just remember that it is really a short amount of time in the long run…and the end result is the best thing in the world! Just try and stay positive. Read about how baby is developing each week and get excited :-) Good luck mama! Oh, and ask your doctor about a prescription for the nausea if it’s bad. It helps takes the edge off!

    13 Weeks and 1 day!! It’s almost time for maternity clothes. I have mixed feelings about beginning to show. I definitely feel some thickening and my jeans are a lot tighter!
