My Pregnancy Week 13

Brought to you by
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 just turned 13 weeks and 8 days. I’ve been feeling Alot of movement. And the doctor was able to see my baby’s gender at 3 weeks and 2 days. So a lot of the information you got on here. Isn’t really valid. Because every women’s body is different during their pregnancy. I can tell you that for sure.

  4. Hi: I am 13 weeks 3 days. At 37 I feel great, better than with my two previous pregnancies. This time I changed everything around, I keep exercising, eating healthy and today I had my first prenatal massage. ☺

    I am 13 weeks along today, with my first. Been in a lot of pain but overall still ecstatic about becoming a mother! I hope I find out what I’m having soon!

      The pain that you are feeling is normal. Whenever you’re feeling that pain. Don’t get stressed that just means your baby is growing so your skin is stretching as the baby get bigger. But whatever you do. Don’t take benadryl and Advil. You can only take childrens Tylenol because Tylenol won’t do harm to your body. When you go to your next doctors appointment ask them what kind of pills can you take while your pregnant. And ask them what the difference is between Tylenol and benadryl and Advil. They’ll tell you. Anyways congrats.

    I am 13 weeks today and so excited. I can’t’ believe that in 2 weeks I get to see what I am having.

    I had to purchase maternity pants because my jeans don’t fit right. I feel like I am moving along great. Out with morning sickness and in with heartburn. I am loving every minute though.

    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.

      My due date is September 16th 2018. And I am having a boy. I found out my baby’s gender at 13 weeks and 2 days. How amazing is that. But I’m mostly tired and hungry. I don’t look big at all sadly. All I know is I can’t wear my skinny jeans anymore

  18. Profile photo of Jessica Jessica says:

    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.
