Born & Birth stories

Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 4 inches and she now weighs approximately 1.75 ounces. Your baby is close to the size of a softball and you can easily tell that you are pregnant now! If you wear maternity clothes or a swimming suit, other people will be able to tell that you are pregnant also. You can probably feel your uterus about three to four inches below your bellybutton.

Your baby, 25 weeks to go.....

If you do not yet have a due date, your doctor can easily determine an accurate due date based on the measurement of your baby's head. This is done by an ultrasound examination. Your doctor will be discussing upcoming tests and procedures with you around this time that are able to diagnose or confirm birth defects and other abnormalities.

Your baby is growing at an amazing rate and looking more like a human every day. Because your baby's skin is so thin, you are able to see blood vessels through the skin. Lanugo hair covers your baby's body, but it will be gone when your baby is born. The hair on the eyebrows and head continues to grow. Some babies are born with little or no hair and others have a head full of hair! If you have an ultrasound at this point, you might be able to see your baby sucking its thumb. Even though the eyes continue to move to the front of the face, they are still widely separated. Your baby's ears look like normal ears and continue to develop externally. The bones that have already formed continue to get harder and retain calcium. The baby is very mobile and flexible at this point. She can bend her arms at the elbows and wrists and she can also make a fist with her hands.

Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement! Just a few days after my little rant, I actually started feeling better. I'm at 18w2d now and I am feeling great. I just can't stay wake while watching TV in the evening, but I'll take it. Thank you, kentsmommy, for sharing your mother's story with me. Now, I know that my suffering was not in vain! Hoping we all have great 2nd trimesters!

JDH glad you are feeling better!! Hopefully it stays like that too :)

JDH - 19 days ago
Welcome to week 15 going crazy! Thanks for the comment in week 14. I'm feeling much better today. Im hoping it stays that way. Im off to week 16 tomorrow! I can't believe it! In a short month or so we will find out if baby is a boy or girl and then the time will really fly with Holidays and all! So exciting! I'm just praying I feel better from here on out!,

goingcrazywithfourth - 19 days ago
Yay 15 weeks!!

JDH - 20 days ago
So nice to see you avg2012! I'm suppose to be cleaning my house during nap time RIGHT NOW but I just got hit with a terrible headache! AND, not to mention, my food aversions are coming back! Everything isn't as bad as it was during weeks 8-12 but come on, it's the second trimester! I should be feeling great!!! Right? Ack, guess it's back to noodles and chicken broth for me. I wish I could eat fruit and veggies! I've been snacking on peaches when I can. I just don't feel healthy. Appointment in a week and a half, and I'll definitely be bringing all of this up.

avg2012 - 21 days ago
15 weeks!!! m here..:)

kentsmommy - 22 days ago
Angel - So sorry to hear that you aren't getting any relief yet. I totally agree regarding medications. I never want to be in the situation where my child is ill and the doctor asks me 'did you take xxxx while you were pregnant?' I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I thought that something I did to selfishly make myself feel better temporarily caused some kind of disease in their lifetime. This is actually going on with my mother. She developed a specific type of breast cancer at 58 yrs old that is linked to some kind of 'vitamin' that they were giving pregnant women around the time that she would have been in the womb. My grandmother is aging and no longer knowledgeable of what she took while pregnant but the timeframe matches up so this is where they are placing the blame. My mother (5 yrs later) is now cancer free but not without countless rounds of chemo and surgery. So I totally understand where you are coming from. You just never know what impact substances could have on that precious little one. Hang in there! I know that 5 months sounds like forever but once you are kissing those tiny little lips, it will make this all seem so worthwhile and not so bad after all. Right now it is easier said than done but keep your chin up and try different things like drinking more water, smaller meals, mini naps that all might give some relief.

Angelfree I find I get headaches when I eat too much salty foods and I don't drink enough water. I'm with you about taking any meds too.

JDH - 23 days ago
Angel, I am pregnant with my fourth. this has been the toughest pregnancy by far! My symptoms have never been so awful. Luckily, I haven't actually gotten SICK but the headaches, cramps, nausea, food aversions, loss of energy and appetite just make the days MISERABLE! I thought that week 12 would magically bring relief (for some reason). Boy was I wrong. At al ost 16 weeks, I still have times of bad nausea and I'm still not eating like myself and I don't have any extra energy. I know some of it is due to chasing my three children around, and it will be different each pregnancy, but I have often thought, 'Is this too soon? Are we being irresponsible? Maybe I'm as crazy as people think to have 4 kids!' In the end, on the good days (hey do happen) I know I will love this baby with my whole heart! They will snuggle their way right into our family and we will go on as if they were always here! I'm so excited!

angelfree77 - 23 days ago
Here comes a rant. I am trying to stay positive and I am soooo happy to be having my first baby, especially since I'll be 38 in 12 days, but today has been an emotional day. I am just so tired of not feeling well. I've been crying on and off all day (hormones probably a factor here), but I'm half way through 16 weeks and I still feel miserable. Weeks 14 and 16 brought horrible headaches, which make the nausea worse. I have felt like I have had the flu for the past 2-1/2 months. This may sound a little crazy, but I refuse to take anything to help with the symptoms, because I don't want anything to affect the baby. I Know they say that there are safe things to take, but I just don't trust everything I'm told, especially now that a Little One is depending on me. And I feel alone because no one understands how I am feeling nor do they even want to. Is/has anyone else feeling/felt this way?

angelfree77 - 23 days ago
I believe that I'm feeling movements too. I think I first felt it in week 14. They are very subtle and brief, so by the time I realize, I'm like 'what was that?', but it's a little different than anything I have felt before.

june2012 - 23 days ago
Ooh am glad am not the only one feeling the movements... This is my 2nd baby...

kentsmommy - 24 days ago
june - I'm only 14 wks tomorrow and I swear that I feel a flutter every now and again. Granted it's very possible that it is gas but it just feels like a tiny toe or something:) This is my fourth as well so I guess it's possible. It shouldn't be long before we are sure about the movements:)

JDH - 24 days ago
June, not too early! I still have a hard time deciding if it's gas or not but when I pay attention, I can tell. I was expecting to feel baby sooner since he/she is my fourth! I've been having serious stretch pains in my lower abdomen. They are very annoying and constant!

june2012 - 25 days ago
Week 15 today, woohoo!!! I donno if this is real but for the past 2days I have been feeling baby moving in there, maybe it's still too early to feel it but I strongly feel I did feel her/him...

JDH - 25 days ago
Wow Angel, I just saw that you're in 16 already! I'm just being super lazy right now. Needing to fold laundry. Maybe I'll have a fudge bar first : )

angelfree77 - 25 days ago
Congrats, JDH, on week 15!!!

JDH - 25 days ago
Finally! 15 weeks today! It's nice and easy to remember on a Monay. Something fun to look forward to. I have yet to officially ANNOUNCE this pregnancy to people. Our families know and my MIL tells people that she sees which is fine, but why don't I feel excited to spill the beans? I'm over the mom excited about being pregnant and meeting my little babe!

JDH - 27 days ago
15 weeks in two days! I'm always eager to jump ahead! No one is talking around here lately! Hope it picks up. Otherwise I'll just talk to myself : )

angelfree77 - 31 days ago
15 weeks and 2 days today!!!!!

weber3 - 109 days ago
@pookalou yes you have a hard time even back in the day when I had an easy time. But you are still hanging in and your baby is doing well. Happy for your good news. Thinking of you lots. Hope you can get relief soon and just enjoy your miracle.

pookalou - 109 days ago
@weber3 ️thx yes baby is well but this pregnancy definitely kicking my butt lol

weber3 - 110 days ago
@pookalou so sorry you are still going thru a hard time with his pregnancy. I wish you could just have a stress free enjoyable pregnancy. Glad to hear all is well. This baby is just giving you a hard time.....what a trouble maker in there.

jory927 - 116 days ago
@pookalou congrats on finding out it's a boy!!! So exciting! Yay for the good news too!! Hope they find the cause of the bleeding and cramping soon. I scheduled my anatomy scan for July 7, I feel like this pregnancy is flying by!!! I'm feeling really good with the exception of being more tired, I skipped it in the first trimester now an afternoon nap is a must! Hope you ladies are feeling well!

pookalou - 116 days ago
Update: had ultrasound Friday to make sure baby was ok. Everything is really good with baby, was a little further along than we thought, it's a boy and we have a new Dec. due date. However doctor is still running test to figure out why I am bleeding and cramping. Woke up bleeding again this morning but at least I know and had visual confirmation my son is ok.

JC.GriffHuddle - 116 days ago
The 15th of june marks my 15th week! I am so excited! still getting sick sometimes but I do feel the energy coming back slowly! It takes all my body has in it to work till 6, get home and cook dinner, clean up after and keep up the house! Tell me how you are feeling ladies!

daffymtz22 - 130 days ago

How exciting to those finding out what they're having! We had an elective scan Friday night and confirmed we are having a GIRL!!! We have three boys, so I'm still in shock! There was no way I was going to be able to wait until the end of May for find out what we were having! ;) lol

paulasoon2b8 - 167 days ago
You'rd not alone's not uncommon after multiple births don't forget to do your kiegal exxercises

happythirdbaby - 167 days ago
hi everyone, i haven?t been on for awhile and catching up on your posts. Hope you're all feeling better now we're in our 2nd trimester! I had a scan at 13 weeks, and very very nervous to know whether i'm having a girl or boy (i already have 2 girls!). I'll post my pic online so you could guess on my behalf please :) Do any of you have cravings? i am drinking a lot of juice and eating very salty foods. Am not very keen on sweets like i have been previous pregnancies. Very embarrassing but I've been coughing a lot lately and have a little problem controlling my release down below :(

paulasoon2b8 - 168 days ago
3D ultrasound Tara? Congrats! Baby boys are so sweet...they love their mama's! I had my first 3D in 8 pregnancies...she said for sure girl...I sure hope she was right...I'm so excited to shop pink lol love my boys but girls are fun to shop for!!

PaulaSoon2B8 - 168 days ago
I go for my anatomy scan on may 15, so hopefully peanut will cooperate and show us for sure that she is a I've never had a 3d so I don't know the accuracy rate. I just don't want to shop too much until I have that guarantee...but if you are 15 weeks, and they said to you boy at a regular makes me feels a bit better about the :P

TaraR - 168 days ago a 3D, we are going to do one of those between 24 and 30 weeks. I'm pretty excited to be a Momma of a little boy. My girls are thrilled to have a baby brother! :) Congrats on the little princess!!

paulasoon2b8 - 169 days ago

Hello ladies!!! I went for my ultrasound yesterday and I'm having a sweet baby boy!! I'm pretty excited and super nervous!!! I have 2 girls now! But I'm so blessed to be a Mommy to a little prince! :) I hope everyone is doing well!

PaulaSoon2B8 - 171 days ago
Well I went for a 3d ultrasound last evening...and tech said she not supposed to say 100% but she said she was 100% sure she saw girl parts :) I had the feeling all along but it's nice to know for sure...I'm so excited to shop for pink again :)

RowdyRandi - 176 days ago
So crazy thing happened last night. My husband actually felt baby move. I could feel baby rolling around inside and he put his hand on my lower tummy almost my pelvis and said he felt something. I thought that was amazing cuz i didn't direct him at all as to where i was feeling baby he moved his hand around and found it himself

1morefor4 - 179 days ago
treading-- my husband refuses to guess because he's been wrong too many times before. but I was only half wrong with my youngest (I kept saying I thought girl but I kept having this dream that they told us girl at the ultrasound and he was born a boy... I should have listened to my dream) and 100% right with my oldest two.

treadingwater - 179 days ago
I usually have gut feelings but this time...I don't know. NO feelings at all. I can't guess the gender.

1morefor4 - 179 days ago
Does anyone have a gut feeling on gender? I know there's a 50/50 of being right or wrong and I'd be happy either way but my gut keeps screaming girl. Although my gut may be being influenced by my only DD who is insisting I have to have a girl because the last baby was a boy and she wants a sister not another brother.

1morefor4 - 179 days ago
15 weeks and still nauseous but at least I know what to do to help soothe it at this point. I do get tiny bursts of energy here and there but I'm still spending most of my daytime wishing I were sleeping and most of my nighttime sitting up wide awake. But I've been feeling little tapping coming from my little beanie baby.

RowdyRandi - 179 days ago
Woohoo week 15! I think I'm gonna end up being one of those women who are nauseous the whole pregnancy but oh well its not all day. Mostly at night. Headaches are still frequent too. I see dr again next week for some more bw. Can't remember why. I'll ask when i get there

austinjeanxo - 195 days ago
Hahaha it sounds silly but even everyone at worm is noticing it!!! Hahaha I literally didn't look pregnant A few days ago lol

beckym - 195 days ago
Lol austin, belly came out of nowhere

austinjeanxo - 196 days ago
I'm only feeling baby ball up and change positions.... At night I'll sometimes dream Of stronger kicks.... Wonder if that's baby actually doing It and me not realizing? I can't wait to actually know for sure that is a baby movement..... No one else can feel anything but me. I'm jealous of those of you that can feel..... My mother said I JUST started to look pregnant today.... It's like a belly came out of nowhere

beckym - 199 days ago
Congrats jamie! Thank you baby love. Good luck at your u/s holtz, I hope the kids love it.

holz8519 - 199 days ago
