Ticker Change Day: 13 Weeks

Weekly Survey

  • How far along?: 13 Weeks
  • Total weight gain: +2: starting weight was 126.
  • How big is baby?: The size of a peach at approx. 2½ - 3 inches long from crown to rump and weighs about 1¼ oz.
  • Maternity clothes?: Yep
  • Stretch marks?: Just the ones I already had from Little Man.
  • Sleep?: It's much better now that I have the Snoogle (no more sore back!), but I was woken up two hours earlier than normal this morning because LM woke up vomiting. I hate it when he's sick!
  • Best moment this week?: Hands down, watching the tiny one wiggle around on the u/s screen for a good half an hour.
  • Movement?: I SWEAR I felt something today! I was sitting on the couch crocheting a blanket (so not moving around too much) and I felt a couple quick little flutters. I've been paying attention all day since, but haven't felt anything else. MyLovf doesn't believe me...
  • Food cravings?: None
  • Belly button in or out?: Still flat
  • What I miss: Meh, nothing right now.
  • What I'm looking forward to: Knowing for sure if I'm feeling movement.
  • Developments: Fingerprints have formed on baby's tiny fingertips, his veins and organs are clearly visible through his still-thin skin, and his body is starting to catch up with his head — which makes up just a third of his body size now. Baby's body is covered with a soft, fine hair called lanugo. The toes and fingers are well formed and separate. Sockets for all 20 teeth are now in the gums. The ears have now moved into the correct position on the side of the head, and the eyelids meet and will fuse together. The kidneys and urinary tract are functioning now, so the baby begins to process and urinate small portions of the amniotic fluid that has been swallowed.
