Born & Birth stories

This week your baby has an amazing growth spurt. At the beginning of this week, your baby is approximately 4 to 5 mm and by the end of the week it has more than doubled to 11 to 13 mm! Your baby weighs approximately 0.03 ounces. Most women are ready for the world to know they are pregnant. Whenever you are ready to spread the news with your friends and family, consider the many unique and creative ways of doing so to make this a special time in your life! Even though you have not changed very much yet, it will come soon! You might have gained a small amount of weight by now, but it should only be a couple of pounds at this time. It is not unusual to lose a few pounds or remain the same though. Internally, cervical mucus is thickening and will form a plug in the cervical canal. The plug seals your cervix throughout the pregnancy and it will be expelled prior to delivery when your cervix begins to dilate.

Within your developing baby, leg and arm buds are longer now and they have divided into segments where the hands and feet will be. The hands and feet also have an area where the fingers and toes will begin to form. At this point of your pregnancy, the heart is bulging from the body and it has divided into right and left chambers. The hemispheres of the brain are continuing to grow and the air passages into the lungs are visible. The eyes are beginning to get pigment at this time as well. The nose is developing and the beginning of the face can be seen. Likewise, the abdomen is developing quickly and the appendix and pancreas are already present. As the digestive tract is beginning to form, the hindgut is present. The shape of the tail can still be seen, but it will fade in 3 or 4 weeks.

Even pregnant women get sick occasionally. You should not take any medications during pregnancy unless your doctor has approved them first. If a problem does not resolve or you need medication, your caregiver can give you advice on relief options that are safe during pregnancy. Take good care of yourself by eating nutritious foods, exercising lightly, drinking extra water and getting an adequate amount of rest.

Mood swings can be a pain in pregnancy. It could be hormones, or a touch of anxiety at the idea of all the coming responsibility.

Limb buds are growing quickly, and they actually look more like arms and legs, with small separations which will become toes and fingers.

Webber it was crazy busy with my other babies as well. Im sorry for your previous loss as well fingers are crossed for you. Omg I'm like you if i dont eat food thats when i start to feel sick as well of course its junk food as well no healthy food appeals to me. I only wee if i wake up at night I'll get up and go but its not making me wake up. I havent had a loss but i feel really in edge with this one. I think once i have my first us and see bub ill be a bit more at ease

weber3 - 8.4 hours ago
I am glad to be almost out of week 7. Every week that goes by I feel a bit more confident with this pregnancy. my previous loss was at 10 weeks so but i am sure by this time i was starting to lose my symptoms so keep hoping this is different. one thing i worry about is that i don't have to pee any extra which i always remember in previous pregnancies. my symptoms are not very severe either but they are there. just keep on hoping and enjoying each new day of being pregnant.

weber3 - 8.4 hours ago
@aussiemom it seems to be quiet everywhere. i was on here with our last two and this site was so busy you could hardly keep up from day to day. that is great that your ms symptoms aren't too bad. I feel pretty good too. as long as i eat enough unhealthy food the ms stays away lol. i guess i am going to gain lots like always.

aussiemum86 - 10.5 hours ago
Hello week 7! Hows? Everyone going? Its very quite in this week. I have been having crap sleeps i fall to sleep ok and then wake up and can not for the life of me get back to sleep. Have been feeling great in re-gards to ms haven't really had it.

mommashavin11 - 19 days ago

sesame - 30 days ago
Hi all, week 7 now. No sickness at all, only symptom is tiredness which hits in the afternoon... Hard to hide all the yawns in work! Can't wait till week 12 to let people know and to have a scan. This is my first baby.

chrissy0423 - 31 days ago

Dec Baby - 41 days ago
Just popping in to say hi girls👋...these weeklies are not what they used to be hey?! 2b...I'll be following and cheering your every mile stone! I so want to see you with a sweet little bubba at the end of 7-8 months time!! There is nobody around in my week so I've been chatty with a nice group of girls 3 weeks behind me, however I'm at the end now...soon I hope this little baby will be here in my arms!!

monkeymomma - 45 days ago
lil.pigz...I recognized your name too! When I was pregnant with #2, #1 did his own thing. Now pregnant with #3, #2 is still needy so it's a lot more difficult getting through the evening. I'm not complaining.....haha, just venting. And to top it off, our hot water lines broke the other night! We still have cold water for toilets and sinks, but can't shower or wash dishes. So I pack stuff up everyday and take them to my parents. That, I'm complainging about!

2bBlessedw2 - 45 days ago
I've been pregnant so many times and have never been this sick. I find when I skip the Unisom at night, it is soooooo much worse. I also shove saltine crackers down my throat when I first awake and that helps a lot too. I had my first scan on Tuesday and baby looks great! Measuring perfect to the day and a heart rate of 121. No reason for my bleeding but yesterday is the first day I did not bleed in 11 days. Yay! Next appointments are on the 24th with the genetics counselor and the usual consult with the high risk doctor. My next ultrasounds will be at 10.5, 11.5 and 14 weeks. Then every 2 weeks starting at 16 weeks. Moving along! I'll know what sex the baby is by 11 weeks! Exciting! Hope everyone is doing great!

lil.pigz - 46 days ago
So far so good. Just horrible heartburn, otherwise no other symptoms. Glad to see someone else in here recent, monkeymomma! Your name looked familiar so I looked at your profile😊 we share a lot of the same friends so somewhere along the way we must have been in a forum together at one point.

monkeymomma - 46 days ago
I'm just getting over a bug and still feel weak & tired. Now nausea has set in this evening. Gotta love being pregnant! lol

LittleAussieChick - 55 days ago
TreaDING, great news to hear that there is a reason for the spotting that isnt necessarily bad. Let us know what your doc says when you see him too. :) I made my NT Scan appointment today. Its booked for the 2nd of April. Im counting down the days! It will be my first scan. Once thats over with and cleared as 'all is well', i'll be able to happily chill out and enjoy this pregnancy. I have recieved news that my baby was not compatible with life with an NT scan 4 years ago, so its always an anxious time for me these first twelve weeks. I have had two healthy, happy, wONDerful children since then though so im thinking the odds are in my favor!! Xxx

kekea - 57 days ago
Treadingwater glad you got to see your little bean!!!

treadingwater - 57 days ago
I called doc office. Nurse says because i am experiencing these symptoms for a week now she put me in for a u/s yesterday. Turns out i have a 1 cm subchorionic hematoma by baby sac. She says it usually it resolves on its own and bleeding will go away. My doc still has to look to see what she wants me to do. I guess its not bad and i feel better now that i know whats going on and also got to see my lil bean. Heart beat was 154.

nikki.e - 58 days ago
Treading water I hope the spotting subsides soon. I've been dry heaving for 3 days now but it's first thing in the morning when I get up. I'm hungry all the time and with the hunger comes nausea. Also I'm SO tired ALL the time. I don't remember being this tired with my last two. 7 weeks tomorrow and two more weeks to wait until I can get my referral for my first u,tra sound. I need to see baby to believe this pregnancy is happening lol

kekea - 58 days ago
Treadingwater my best friend spotted like that her entire pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy baby.

kekea - 58 days ago
msDallas06 may be twins!!!

Treadingwater - 58 days ago
kekea- I hope everything is fine. I have been taking things easy. Husband and I stopped 'dancing'. I am still experiencing pregnancy symptoms like crazy too.

Treadingwater - 58 days ago
LittleAussieChick - I spoke to the nurse. She said as long as it's not heavy and I don't see tissue that I should be fine. I have been bleeding from pink, red, to brown for over a week now but it's very light. I don't know if I should still call back just to make sure everything is okay.

mzdallas06 - 59 days ago
Hi All! This is my fourth baby & although my husband and I are ecstatic- I have never been this sick with either of my past pregnancies. I got violently I'll and went to the doc & that's how I found out- and I was only 4 wks... It's constant nausea, vomiting & fatigue & migraines EVERY SINGLE DAY. I have a 2yro, 3 yro and 12yro so I don't have the luxury to lay in bed all day. Would love any suggestions from you ladies. Thanks so much!

kekea - 59 days ago
treadingwater I'm sure everything is fine. Just take it easy...

kekea - 59 days ago
Hope you feel better nikki. Are you taking anything?

kekea - 59 days ago
I'm just extremely fatigue. I had to leave work early Monday!!!

LittleAussieChick - 60 days ago
Oh no NIKKI! Nausea and vomiting. No fun at all. TREADING, have you spoken to your doc about the spotting? Im pretty sure i'v read before that it can be pretty common at this stage though. I bet its nothing of concern at all. :)

Treadingwater - 60 days ago
nikki.e - lol both! Luckily, I do not have that. However, I have been experience light spotting. Brownish color discharge. Hope everything is ok.

nikki.e - 60 days ago
No activity in the 6 weeks page so I'll post here... Not sure what's worse - all day nausea or actual vomiting :/

LittleAussieChick - 62 days ago
Is anyone not feeling any nausea or pregnancy symptoms really yet? For my last pregnancies i swear i was feeling stuff by now. Im feeling a little anxious since i wont recieve a scan until 12 weeks this time either. I normally have seen an Ob who does an earlier scan but I'v switched Doctors this time.

kekea - 65 days ago
DanielleuWashington I had to change meds to. I was on amplod opine and spironalactine but I had to come off of both and now I'm doing metolozone. I'm not sure if it is effective. I was suppose to go in this week but the weather here has been terrible...

kekea - 65 days ago
Congrats Nikki.e... I reached out to a lot of ladies in my week to start communication in the forum maybe it would help if you did that.

kekea - 65 days ago
Well guys I'm back in week 7. Lol. My dating ultrasound yesterday put me at 7 weeks and 5 days. Which is weird because I thought I was sure about my date of conception... - 66 days ago
Hi Kekea! I'm back, I am sorry about responding back to you all so late, but yes I am on medicine for my bp. I was taking lacilpril but when finding out I was preg. My OB wanted me to stop taking that one and started me on labatelol. He said it was to much for the fetus. I am so glad to know that I am not the only one that have kids that are so attach at this time! :)

nikki.e - 67 days ago
Saying hi from week 5! There's no one active in the week 5 or 6 forum... :(

Treadingwater - 68 days ago
daniellewashington-I have an 18th month old and she is very attached me. She goes where I go. I call her my lil shadow. Lol. She's glued to me. I experience this with everyone of my kids. When I'm pregnant my youngest will become attach like crazy.

kekea - 69 days ago
DanielleuWashington50 are you on meds for your bp. I have to go to the doc tomorrow to see if my new meds are effective and then I get an ultrasound thursday. I didn't have high bp with the other pregnancies so it is a little frightening...

kekea - 69 days ago
DanielleuWashington my hormones are out of wack too. Mood swings like crazy and every time I get mad I cry. My children always get clingy when I am pregnant. I think that is my first sign. Lol. Well congrats I have a four year old daughter as well and she wanted to lay on me last night while I rock her to sleep, mind you she is my 2nd born (I have 4 kids). Lol. - 69 days ago
Is any1 going through what I am...My daughter constantly stays attach to me now since I have been preg. is this normal or is this just one of those ol tlk myths? Seriously, I cant do anything without her stay up under me when I am home! - 69 days ago
I don't know about no1else but my hormones are out of control this pregnancy. I'm finding myself to get very upset quickly, especially with my daughter. I don't mean too, but it happens at times. - 69 days ago
Hi every1!I'm glad to be back here as well, I haven't been back here since 2011. Yes! I have a soon to be 4 year old beautiful daughter(2/21). I really think she is going to love being a new big sister. She constantly tells me she wants the same as I want, which is a boy. I haven't had much sickness this far thou, just a lil fatigue. hey Kekea! I too have the bad dreams and the high blood pressure. hope Everything will get better soon!

RowdyRandi - 69 days ago
Lanaela i feel the same way. I've learned from relatives that they all felt the same way when #2 was in utero as well. Its nice to know every woman has these issues

kekea - 70 days ago
Lanaela your feelings are perfectly normal. I was afraid that my son would feel bad. He was two when I had my daughter. The key is to keep the first child involved. Everybody thought that my son would be jealous but he was not at all. Instead he was very protective. I just kept him involve. I let him get her diapers or wipes. Let him help me dress her. Let him kiss her head and told him that she was his baby also when you have multiple children you have to remember to give them all personal time with you. RowdyRandy I hope yof feel better. I get sick every time I eat. I never felt this way any other time... well ladies I am moving to week 8 see you all there.

lanaela - 71 days ago
Hello Ladies! Yay, our board is alive!!!! No dreams for me... I mean none...I'm just constantly tired, and want to eat anything in sight. I have a weird question for you ladies with more than one kid. I kind of feel like I'm cheating on my baby girl, I'm so scared she will feel left out. She is our little queen, and I can't help feeling I'm getting her dethroned. Is this crazy?

RowdyRandi - 71 days ago
Sorry haven't gotten on here in a couple days. Kekea i have been having some seriously crazy dreams lol. Nausea still wants to come and go along with indigestion. Seems like everything i eat gives me issues. Don't have a preferred gender really but if i had to pick id say another girl simply because i have plenty of girl stuff but a boy would be fine too just praying for a healthy baby. And hoping i can breastfeed this one too. My 1st child was preterm and underweight so hopefully this one goes better. Hope all of y'all are hanging in there

kekea - 72 days ago
Anybody having weird dreams yet? I had the most bizarre dream last night...

marcellab - 72 days ago
kekea-Sorry to hear about your high blood pressure, hopefully with the right meds you will be alright soon enough and get it under control... I'm hoping for a boy, as I already have 2 girls, my poor husband is out numbered, and I'm going crazy with all these female hormones and mood swings!!! lol!! My appointment is next week, and I can't wait...

kekea - 73 days ago
RowdyRandy I hope you feel better, and marcellab I have 3 boys and 1 girl so I am really hoping for a girl Because we are out numbered. Lol

kekea - 73 days ago
I agree ladies the site has gone down. My first and second time around I had a good support system. I have never experience sickness during pregnancy until today. Lol. I felt awful! I hope everyone is feeling good. Lanaela how exciting is it to see your bundle. I get a dating ultrasound Thursday. This is my first time having one so soon though. What are you ladies hoping for as far as the sex of the babies? I think we can stay connected with each other if we all try to check in atleast once a day. Pregnancy is so exciting and I really just enjoy sharing the experience.
