Week 13

Baby: Your fully formed fetus, now in about its 11th week of development, measures 2.6 to 3.1 inches from crown to rump and weighs between half an ounce and seven-tenths of an ounce — about the size of a peach. The head is still disproportionately bigger than the body, but the rest of the body is starting to catch up. In fact, your baby is growing rapidly these days. The face is starting to look more human, with eyes moving closer together. Toes and fingers are clearly separate, and ankles and wrists have formed. External genitalia are becoming visible. Intestines are shifting into their proper place, too.

Mom-to-be: Your uterus has grown a lot. It’s filling your pelvis now and starting to grow upward into your abdomen. It probably feels like a soft, smooth ball. If you haven’t put on any weight yet because of morning sickness, you’ll begin to now as you start to feel better.

So far so good.  I was still able to sqeeze into my size 26 Paige jeans this weekend, although that was only accomplished because a) they are so absurdly low rise my entire mid section was able to muffin-top over them and b) I did about 40 lunges in them to stretch them out enough to cover my thighs and still leave room for circulation.  That being said, I wore a dress to work on Friday that (accidentally) highlighted the little bump I do have going and I really felt like I looked pregnant for the first time.  Kinda exciting.

As usual, I have no idea what the small one is up to, so I’m going with the no news is good news MO.   

Overall rating: 7 (I’m transitioning from “oh my god I’m pregnant” to “oh my god I’m having a baby” which is interesting to say the least, if not baffling.)
