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.

Dmmarinewife, do you love it?

dmmarinewife - 270 days ago
Hi ladies. Just stopping in to say hello... It has been extremely hectic/ chaotic here as were getting ready to move cross country... FYI moving sucks already, moving while in your first trimester sucks even more. Just finished my last day of work yesterday, movers came and packed everything and now comes the hard part- driving cross country. But first I have an ultrasound on Monday am. Hope you're all doing well. And Julie's mom- I have a doppler as well- I bought it during my last pregnancy- you can get them brand new for $50. I got the sonoline fetal doppler b I believe.

lissie**** - 271 days ago
fourthtimesacharm/// glad you joined us! We need more ladies!

Juliemom24 - 271 days ago
Metalmommy and Shay, I'm feeling so bad for you two right now. That sounds terrible. Shay, I'm totally jealous that you bought a doppler. Let me know how that goes for you. I am always seeing people selling those and I'm pretty tempted to snatch one up.

FourthTimesACharm - 271 days ago
Just joining this site for the fourth time :) been following for a few weeks and decided to give it a go again

Metal-Mommy - 272 days ago
Thanks shay! i might do just that! Gonna have my friend take me to the store while my husband talks to the plumber about our leaky pipes.. ugh, today is awesome -.- lol

shaym007 - 272 days ago
Ugh metal mommy- I am sorry, I totally feel for you... It totally sucks!! Try peppermint or ginger ale ooorrrr rest if you can. :)

shaym007 - 272 days ago
Brittplus3 the one I am in is Nov/Dec 2014... I don't care! I think it'll be a confusing with a lot of separate groups ;)

Metal-Mommy - 272 days ago
jinxed myself..... barfing up a storm today. i hope its just a short phase.. this sucks!! I got a massive head ache so maybe it has something to do with that? idk, help me. lol

brittplus3 - 272 days ago
This is going to be a December 2014 baby group. So it'll be smaller and everyone will have babies around the same time. If the other group is like that, maybe we could combined them?

lissie**** - 272 days ago
yep im in two groups. One b/c it has almost 400 people and all seem very supportive and kind. It's an awesome group of ladies...but a lot of them have already had their babies or are much further along than us so I also am in a new group and i hope we can up our numbers :)

shaym007 - 272 days ago
Metal mommy, I have a headache still from the puking episode I had last night :-/

shaym007 - 272 days ago
Brittplus3 - there is another private group I'm apart of, I think there is 3 now?!!! Not that I don't mind being apart of them, but I can't keep up with three groups! Lol

shaym007 - 272 days ago
Oh my gosh....last night was so bad,.... I didn't feel good all day, then I wanted spaghetti, so I are some, took a bath, brushed my teeth....then I look at my husband and said, I think I'm gonna throw thing I know I have my hands cupped and am throwing up uncontrollably across the loving room floor :( man went to the trash can threw up two more times then ran to the bathroom.... Seriously had vomit all over my face. It was Soooooo bad and gross!! First time this pregnancy I've thrown up after eating :( blah I went to bed feeling like completely crap! Hope today is better....

Metal-Mommy - 272 days ago
Worse headache ever.. i could cry! but it would probably hurt myself more... lol

brittplus3 - 272 days ago
I started a completely private group on Facebook! (It's a lot easier to chat) If you want to join, private message me! 😊

shaym007 - 273 days ago
I just bought a Doppler! I can't wait to use it :) I'm sure it'll be two weeks or so, but I think my girls will love it!

Juliemom24 - 273 days ago
So sorry ladies about the ms. I'm with metalmommy. I feel pretty normal besides being tired and super hungry. I finally booked an appt so I get to see baby on Monday. I'm so ready to see that heartbeat!

nini210 - 273 days ago
hellooooooooo week 7! =) anyone else due dec 17th?? =)

emilycastan - 274 days ago
shay- today I threw up in the kitchen sink! It's a good thing I didn't have any dinner because I don't have a garbage disposal and I would have had to clean in up myself! lol. This pregnancy has been entirely different that my last one. I've got a lot of morning sickness, my boobs are KILLING me, and I'm completely wiped out!

shaym007 - 274 days ago
I've been super nauseated yesterday and today! Which is weird cause th unisom was helping... Now not so much. I am exhausted too! I just want to lay around all day! My husband comes home in a bad mood though cause I haven't done anything all day! I am Soo ready to be out of the first trimester!

meggz - 275 days ago
I am so tired I can barely tell if I'm coming or going! Ultrasound Friday!!! Off to week 8 tomorrow! :)

lissie**** - 275 days ago
Unisom, interesting. This could be very helpful to me b/c the other two haven't worked in the past. I could use help in the PM as I have more of evening sickness than morning sickness anyway :P

lissie**** - 275 days ago
My symptoms have kicked in fatigued and ms has been miserable. I've lost 6.5 pounds which I'm not sad about b/c i need it. and I am still eating just avoiding soda as much as possible (I was in a bad habit of drinking tons).

shaym007 - 275 days ago
The Unisom is for nausea! I even googled it and ya a lot of women have had success with it! Obviously it makes you sleepy, so I take it right before bed.

Metal-Mommy - 276 days ago
Today, i feel wonderful! Sore boobies yes but not as bad. I feel awesome! Now with my last child this was sssooo not the case! This pregnancy is SSSOOO different than my daughters! I am utterly shocked! lol Anyone else have hardly any symptoms? I would be worried if i didnt have my HCG levels taken and had an ultrasound last week that showed a heartbeat. Plus the progesterone helps keep pregnancies viable i know its not full proof but... i am starting to really feel hopeful!

charcharsuperstar - 276 days ago
shaym007, The unisom was for nausea or for sleep ? WOw I've never heard that before !

shaym007 - 276 days ago
Hey ladies! I am now in week 7... I was having super, super bad nausea last week... Like barely could move off the couch. I called my dr and she told me to take Unisom and b6 at night, and en a half a tab of Unisom in the a.m, I haven't done the a.m, one as I. Afraid I'll be too tired, but have done the full tab at night and it's seem to help!

charcharsuperstar - 276 days ago
Hi mommies ! I'm almost 8 weeks and just wanted to pop in for a bit. MS still isn't as bad as it was for my other babies, but it's slowly increasing. ANd still really super sore boobies.

lissie**** - 277 days ago
I will have to tell my sis about all you ladies bleeding b/c she is really upset about her bleeding. I think she is 5 weeks? Scary that you bled a lot the other night and glad baby looks good and they are putting you on progesterone etc.

Juliemom24 - 277 days ago
Morigan, I'm so glad that everything turned up good!

moriganshound - 277 days ago
Thank you ladies for your feed back. Had lots of bleeding the next night, and was seen by my DR the next day. Good news is the baby is fine and probably just injured my cervix painting. They are putting me on progesterone and Im on bed rest for a week.

Juliemom24 - 278 days ago
I also am spotting. It's completely unnerving since this never happened with my first pregnancy. It seems everything is still good. Each pregnancy is different, right? I'll feel better when I have an ultrasound. So sorry that so many of you are starting with the MS. Wishing us a quick first trimester!

lissie**** - 278 days ago
Metal-mommy// I am super exhausted too and want to nap all day. Unfortunately, with my 3 boys at home ages 4, 3, 17 months I haven't been getting any naps. I feel like it's hard to get through the day and get anything done. And I wasn't having intense ms but last night it was bad! And today it is off and on boo!! I hope you won't get it.

Metal-Mommy - 278 days ago
Ladies, if i havent yet experienced morning sickness... What is the likelihood that i just wont have it? lol I had it woth my other two pregnancies but this one... not so much! Anyone else feel like they nap as much as a cat? geez.. lol

lissie**** - 278 days ago
Emily me too last night :(

emilycastan - 278 days ago
Big switch to being super sick the past 2 days. Yuck!

lissie**** - 279 days ago
Oh, I'm sorry to hear you are bleeding. It can be very alarming. I'm not spotting but had problems with another pregnancy where I bled a ton. I was a further along though and had to take it very easy. Hope it eases up asap.

moriganshound - 279 days ago
Anyone else having spotting? Im having it after work (Im a Massage Therapist, so its pretty physical) and after playing hard w/my 2 yr old.

lissie**** - 279 days ago
I get was getting ms only later at night but now it is off and on all day and night. But it isn't nearly as intense as my previous pregnancies at least so far.

charcharsuperstar - 281 days ago
Meggsz, today I made it almost to 3pm with no MS! Now its 10pm at night and I feel yucky, uggg.

meggz - 281 days ago
Char- me! My 'morning sickness' comes in waves for the rest of the day starting about lunchtime.

charcharsuperstar - 282 days ago
Yay week seven! Who feels good in the morning but is nauseous in the afternoon?

emilycastan - 282 days ago
Hello all! Excited to be in week 7! I was wondering if anyone else in here is taking a blood thinner while pregnant. I am currently taking 60mg of Clexane twice a day via shots because of a blood clotting condition. Last pregnancy I was on Lovenox but they don't have that medication available in Korea. Feeling pretty ok... not really any nausea but my boobs are killing me and I'm super tired all the time.

daisyreh - 287 days ago
Hello week #7!! Feeling pretty good this week after a nasty sinus cold. Hope all you mamas are feeling good. :)

katyuk - 289 days ago
Hi all, had an u/s yesterday because of some spotting and was lovely to see my little Peapod doing fine with a nice strong heartbeat. I'm 7w 3d today. Good luck and happy pregnancies to you all :D x

blessedlifewithyou - 289 days ago
yay this is baby #3 for me and each week is still as equally as exciting! :) made it to week 7!!! <3<3<3 love my little peanut already! - 290 days ago
7 weeks today :) I am seriously so exhausted all I do lately is eat and sleep. Anyone else feeling like that?

ASergeantsWife - 299 days ago
Ugh morning sickness is kicking my butt! Sooo sick all day. Tried reglan going to call and see if I can get some Zofran. Hopefully it will work. With 8 (the youngest of whom are 3,2 &1) kids I just don't have time to be sick! I don't go to the doc until the 22nd :(

aksnods - 308 days ago
So dr called me back and she scheduled me for an u/s. Nervous that she wants to do one but excited to see my little peanut
