Born & Birth stories

Your baby continues to grow and is now approximately the size of a large lime! The crown-to-rump length of your developing child is 1.75 to 2.4 inches. The weight of the fetus is approximately 8 grams at this point. The growth of your baby is phenomenal now and your babys length will double in the next three weeks. The head is grossly out of proportion and is almost half of the babys length.

You are almost at the end of your first trimester and while changes continue to occur quickly in your baby, they are happening at a slower rate in you. Your uterus has been growing with the fetus inside of it and is now almost big enough to fill your pelvis. Your uterus may be able to be felt in your lower abdomen, above the middle of your pubic bone. You are not able to feel the baby moving inside of you at this time. Some women think that they have felt fetal movements now, but it is either gas or a wrongly dated pregnancy. You might also be noticing changes in your hair, fingernails, or skin around this time. Some women notice an increase in hair growth and nail growth during pregnancy and others lose small amounts of hair. You are burning up calories at a faster rate than you did before you became pregnant! The amount of blood being pumped around your body will increase and you might feel warmer than usual.

This is the last week of the embryonic period. From now on, your baby will be called a fetus. As development continues, the fingernails appear this week. External genitalia are beginning to show distinguishing features and the development of male or female will be complete in three weeks. The placentas blood vessels increase to provide your baby with the nutrients and oxygen he needs for continued growth. The ears are gradually moving from the neck towards the sides of his head. Inside of the developing abdomen, the intestines are developing. Because the intestines are so large, some of them project into the umbilical cord and they will return to the abdomen within the next week or two.

At the size of a plum, your baby is now able to swallow. The urinary system functions. The baby swallows and urinates the amniotic fluid and the fluid is continually replaced. The baby is kicking but the mother cannot feel it yet. All vital organs are formed and, for the most part, function normally. From now on, they will grow in size and efficiency.

As a preparation for breastfeeding, your baby now has learned to swallow. Babies swallow amniotic fluid in the uterus.

HopingforaGirl35 - 12 days ago
11 weeks + 2 today.. looking fwd. to my 12 week ultrasound app. to see baby for the 1st time! :o)

8blessings - 15 days ago
hi ladies i hope you are all doing well,i had my first u/s yesterday so happy to see my lil blessing, and i am exactly 11wks 1 day today, so my due date is now the 26th june enjoying my pregnancy so far and looking forward to my first m/w appt next week :)

summerhope - 15 days ago
Aah i feel for you. I'm just skipping about from week 10 as it is so quiet in here. I'm really tired, and very snarky. I look horrible, feel horrible and am really not a pleasure to be around at the moment 😳 like you I'm hoping it changes soon, at least you got to see the little one though xx

loralb - 15 days ago
Sooo tired and ornery. I just want left alone to sleep, but there is no chance of that in sight! Very frustrating. My nausea has let up a little though....until dinnertime. I went to my first ob appt and saw baby:) It was a very active little thing. It seems to be enjoying movement and limbs. I didn't enjoy my dr visit other than that. I have to drive an hour just to get there and then I had to wait forever and give two urine samples and the dr did nothing with me, just suggested I do some screenings. I said okay which sends me all the way back there more often. I am not enjoying the cold or my husband or food, so I am pretty depressed at this point. Things should get better though. Hang in there friends, the second tri is supposed to be better:)

elleanasmama - 20 days ago
If any of you ladies can read my blog I really would love some support and kind words.

elleanasmama - 20 days ago
I know what you mean about going slow. I alternate between wanting it to speed up and then never end.

patiently waiting - 21 days ago
I feel like time should be going by so much faster than it is...every time i log on to this site it disappointing..'Ah, only 11 weeks'. i think the nausea is going but, i am just so snappy and moody. I have been on pelvic rest since week six and now it seems i am testing positive for antibodies while being RH-....looks like lots of tests coming my way. i am very glad i found a doctor i trust. Hope all is well with everyone else.

sleepymom - 21 days ago
Moving to 12 weeks today. Us moved dates back few days. Hi hettyjossy, yay for the easing of nausea for u....soon it will be done. I have told everyone about being preggo for a bit now, finding it harder to keep quiet for the third. Doda maybe u could try taking a picture with your family holding a sign pointing to your tummy saying eating for two or something like that. Let us know how u announce it,

hettyjossy - 26 days ago
Yeeyyyy!! Week 11, Thank God we are almost tru with first trimester.. the nausea is easing off but still comes, can't wait to have it done with. Looking forward to 2nd trimester and quickening....

Doda - 27 days ago
wohooooo week 11 :) Not sure why sleepymom, but when I click on your profile it doesn't have your listed as pregnant although it does have your due date, maybe update your info and it will put you back on the list? How is everyone doing/?? last week of first trimester wohooo! Did any of you already announce your pregnancies? So far I've told close family and friends, I'm trying to think of a clever way to announce on FB, anyone have any good ideas?

sleepymom - 28 days ago
Not sure why but my name hasn't been showing on the members list. anyone know why?

sleepymom - 28 days ago
Yay, 11 weeks a few days ago. BabyTwee a girl, congrats and hooray for your results!!!i agree time does seem to be going fast. I have two other little ones so that speeds things up, too busy this time around to notice time passing. Do you have any other kids?

babytwee - 29 days ago
Hey there ladies!! I got the results of my Verifi chromosome abnormalities and I'm having a GIRL!!!! Yay!!

babytwee - 32 days ago
honeymoon-surprise - Mine is at 8am. :) I think the time is going by fast, maybe because I'm wishing it to go by so my appointments where I get to see the baby would hurry up and get here. LOL

honeymoon-surprise - 33 days ago
Babytwee, mines at 11:30 can't wait, unfortunately my husband has got to work so my mom is coming with me! Can't wait to see the baby! Do you feel like it's all going by so fast? X

babytwee - 33 days ago
Honeymoon-surprise - I have my scan on next Monday too! I have had one already though at 7w3d. I can't wait!!

honeymoon-surprise - 34 days ago
Week 11!! Loving how fast the 1st trimester is going!! Roll on next Monday get to see baby for the first time!

tabby607 - 34 days ago
We 12 tomorrow.... eeeeekkkk almost done with the 1st trimester.

tabby607 - 39 days ago
Hey everyone, so I went to my appt. Today. Baby heart best was 175. I found out I have kidney stones... (explains the sharp stabbing pain in my back) I ended up passing 4 stones when I did my urinary test... 😁 so on top of that I found out at 7 weeks I have gallstones also....grrrrr.... I'm trying to enjoy this pregnancy but my body is making it hard... anyone else having a hard time? How is everyone else feeling.

beanaleena - 50 days ago
Years ago I was on here. This site was much more lively!!!! Hopefully it picks up! Are many of you ladies still sick? This has been been the longest 3 months of my life! I have lost 12 pounds. Food taste like crap, my mouth tastes funny, blah blush! What I am grateful for, having an early may due DATe! First pregnancy not having to deal with the heat of Summer!!!!! Anyhow, hoping , if you are sick, that it comes to an end very soon! Anyone had any gender dreams? I dreampt another boy ( in fact my dream was twin boys). Wanting a girl so bad

mamaford77 - 69 days ago
Week 11! Woot! I have my next appt and ultrasound on Wednesday. So excited to see my little Bean!

sher-baby - 87 days ago
That works too!!! I picked up the baby's hb again today but I think I've got a swimmer!! He wasn't in the same spot as yesterday and he kept moving. I'm also pretty sure my placenta is attached to the front wall of my uterus because I can hear it almost anywhere I put the probe so that makes hearing the baby a lil hard because most of the time I hear the placenta in the back also makes it hard to get the hear rate because it picks up one or the other or sometime both. Oh well!! I'll be 12 weeks on Saturday whoo hoo! Time is flying!

supermom87 - 87 days ago
Thank you sherbaby I may be able to afford one later but for now a friend is letting me borrow hers

mandykat760 - 87 days ago
I can't find the fb page either.

maryamz - 87 days ago
I can't find the April Facebook page :(

sher-baby - 87 days ago
supermom87 - ebay. i watched a few different youtube videos to see how others used it as well as to see which one i should get.

supermom87 - 87 days ago
Awesome sherbaby. Where do you get a fetal Doppler

sher-baby - 88 days ago
I got a better sleep last night. DH slept on the couch...maybe he's the reason I can't sleep! Lol Jks! AND...i heard the HB today!!! 160-164 placenta is usually around 89-109 so there is a clear took me a few minutes playing around but i found it...whoo hoo!!

maryamz - 88 days ago
Ahh sherbaby too many Michelle van cleave on Facebook. Can you look for maryam khalid qureshi on Facebook and add me? Thanks!

sher-baby - 88 days ago
Ya me too...I'm 5'9' and about 140lbs (pre pregnancy). When I first got the Doppler I played around with it to get use to all the differed sounds and stuff. I heard the 'hb' on my left side which I know is my artery and from my us at 6weeks I know the baby is/was more so to the right side. I hear my placenta loud an clear on my right side too...up kind of high in my abdomin but it's super loud. However, that's pretty much it. I'm thinking maybe the baby is behind the placenta and maybe that's why I can't hear it ?!?...(maybe??) who knows. I'm not worried about it that much but we'll see...I'm more bothered that I CANT SLEEP!!!! Ugh. Now I'm soo tired and I'm stuck watching Frozen for the 10000000 time! Life is sooo fun...NOT!

babylove5 - 89 days ago
Sher I still have a hard time finding my baby and I am thin, so you would thimk it would be easy! I have to search and when I do pick him up its 150 for a few seconds and then he moves.I wouldn't worry until he gets big enough to find easily. You do have a heartbeat on both sides that is your own from major arteries. The babies should be at least 140. My uterus is very long, so he can easily get away from me and apparently he doesn't like the

sher-baby - 89 days ago
I was up from about 1:30 until after 4am. And of course my daughter has no school today and is up at like 7am! Today is not going to be a good day...feels like I'm getting a headache too now! Great! ..just wonderful! Supermom, this is BS! I don't know what to do at night to sleep!...

supermom87 - 89 days ago
2:32 where I'm at and I gotta be up at 6am for work i been like this since around week 5 and I stay exhausted sherbaby so you're not alone and I actually lay down wishing I could sleep but it just doesn't seem to work in to the point now my hips are so sore from being awake so long and laying down trying to sleep

sher-baby - 89 days ago
2:39 am here and I'm wide awake!!! Anyone else suffering from insomnia?? It's starting to frustrate's been like this since week 7!!!

shellybelly81 - 89 days ago
maryamz its April 2015 mommies... im Michelle van cleave on there if u have a hard time message me and ill add you

sher-baby - 89 days ago
U/s is on the 30th and my second prenatal appt Is on the 2nd

maryamz - 89 days ago
Sher-baby when is your ultrasound due? Maybe you should just go and check with your doc? Don't worry..sometimes the position is odd and you cannot hear the heartbeat by a doppler.

sher-baby - 89 days ago
So this might be a dumb question but do u ladies think I should be worried if I still can't seem to find a fetal heart beat with my Doppler?? I'm almost 100% sure that hb I'm hearing is my placenta but I don't hear like a 'galloping' sound like a fetal is 11w3d for me.

maryamz - 89 days ago
Shellybelly what's the name of the group? How do I add it?

supermom87 - 89 days ago
So ready for Thursday so I can see how my lil sweet pea is doing in there

shellybelly81 - 90 days ago
our group is secret

maryamz - 90 days ago
Hey that Facebook group private or public?? I really want to join but haven't told anybody about the pregnancy yet!

shellybelly81 - 90 days ago
someone made an April 2015 mommy's group on fb, its a fun group, about 35 women in that group. i heard the baby's heartbeat, 156. so exciting :-) i go October 1st for the nuchal fold scan and happily waiting to feel better and enter second trimester soon!

babylove5 - 90 days ago
I'm starting to worry its not going to get better and just come in waves, of all the times to get sick today was not good. I decided to get the screening done at 12 weeks for any genetic defects insurance covers it. I'm not worried at all I just want to look at my baby. :) Ill post a pic if its clear. Y'all should do the same free ultra sound.

babylove5 - 90 days ago
We went out to eat with my parents and I haven't told them I'm pregnant, so I wore loose clothing. Things were going well no one seemed to notice. I started eating my salad and then I suddenly had a strong urge to throw up. I tried to choke it back down but I had to run to the restroom and I had projectile vomiting. My mother comes in and checks on me, since I had been gone a while. I told her the salad made me sick. I hope that didn't give me away yet. They had to call someone to clean up it went all over the wall. Idk where it came from I have been fine.

supermom87 - 90 days ago
Same here I made homemade southern baked mac and cheese with fried chicken and it was smelling good and looking good o fixed my kids a plate and I got sick couldn't eat I some left overs today and now I feel like crap again be glad when getting sick at my stomach is over I haven't threw up since like week 5 and I wasn't near as sick as I am now

nicolemarie22 - 90 days ago
I am right there with ya, I felt great for 3 days last weekend and thought I was finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel....then this week has been crappy again. I want my energy back!! And I want to get out and enjoy this awesome fall weather with my 2 year old without being sick to my stomach :( My whole body hurts today...especially my hips. just cant catch a break

sher-baby - 90 days ago
Yesterday and today I've felt like royal crap!!! I almost threw up again this morning...wth!! I thought I was suppose to start feeling better...but I've felt better so far in weeks 9 and 10. Week 11 has started off pretty rough..not sure what's going on!

mandykat760 - 90 days ago
I've been taking Zofran but can't take the side effects anymore. At least I'm blaming the pill on the constipation and headaches.
