Ultrasound at 12 wks 6 days. Baby B was measuring 13 wks 1 day 🙂
Woo Hoo! Happy Second Trimester! So completely over the moon thrilled to be entering the second trimester. And although I won’t be totally relaxed until I am holding my beautiful and healthy baby in my arms, I know that transitioning from the first trimester to the second trimester is huge. The risk of miscarriage decreases drastically at this point, which makes me smile from ear to ear 🙂
Here’s what is going on this week according to Baby Center:
Fingerprints have formed on your baby’s tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.
You are now entering your second trimester, and your risk of miscarriage is now much lower than earlier in pregnancy. The second trimester marks the time of relative comfort for many women who see early pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness and fatigue subside. More good news: Many couples also notice a distinct libido lift around this time. Birth is still months away, but your breasts may have already started making colostrum, the nutrient-rich fluid that feeds your baby for the first few days after birth, before your milk starts to flow
