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.

Yay, it's hard to believe we're already far enough along to be scheduling that stuff. So exciting.. I can't wait for my appointment on Friday. - 3 days ago
My appt went good. I got a scan in the doc's office and I got a chance to listen to the heartbeat. I also got my referral for the anatomy ultrasound....I go in three weeks. - 4 days ago
My next appt is at 1:00pm today. I'm also looking forward to the mid pregnancy ultrasound

liltyke7 - 5 days ago
Yeah!! 15 weeks today. Next appt is Monday for a blood draw. Can't wait for 20 week ultrasound.

bajot69 I get occassional headaches but they are mostly caffeine or water related. I have caved and taken tylenol when I get desperate and have to go to a function of some sort. Does tylenol help?Do your headaches make you nauseated?

sleepymom - 38 days ago
15 weeks today by my lmp, but u/s knocked me back a few do I go by u/s or by lmp? happywoman what do you mean saliva? excessive saliva? I'm feeling pretty good, got the slightly stuffy pregnancy nose but otherwise not bad. Bit of ligament? pain sometimes and some shooting pains in my boobs here and there. I am looking forward to the midsize baby kicks (ie 25-34 weeks) but not looking forward to the uncomfortable wake you up during the night foot in the rib cage kicks at like 36 + weeks!!

happywoman84 - 39 days ago
15 weeks and this saliva is annoying!! 😡 - 42 days ago

mamatabby - 45 days ago

A2D - 47 days ago
I am feeling little flutters and am showing much more than with my 1st baby. Hope all is doing well, sorry I don't go on this site as much as I used to...

mamatabby - 47 days ago

mamatabby - 53 days ago

KristinaA - 75 days ago
Hi Theresaporter. We're not a terribly active group anymore. I think most of the forum moved to FB. But welcome nonetheless!

theresaporter - 76 days ago
Hello everyone! I used this forum with my last pregnancy-which was about 5 years ago-made some very good friends. Hope to make more! I am expecting baby #3, I hope everyone is doing well :)

supermom87 - 96 days ago
Yeah I hope so too and sunshine I have been going through same thing and my baby still had heart beat in the hospital tho I quit feeling movement hope that is some reassurance that it don't always mean something bad

babylove5 - 96 days ago
Congrats Mandy on your boy!! I cant get over all the boys! Supermom hopefully it's just where you were sick.

Sunshinebaby8 - 96 days ago
Is everyone feeling the baby move now? I was.. and now I don't feel it anymore. I know it is okay.. but still a little unnerving.

supermom87 - 96 days ago
My Bp dropped down to 60/30something and my heart rate was 33 the heart specialist wants to make sure it was just dehydration that caused it all and not a underlying heart condition that could be potentially deadly so I can be healthy enough to have my C-section done and healthy enough to carry my baby to term kinda feel like this pregnancy is getting extra special care I still feel on edge bout new things but at the same I feel like I can breathe cause I got so many doctors doing everything they can to help me keep this pregnancy I am trying to dig and find faith that me and this baby will be ok

pumpkinfairy - 96 days ago
welcome sunshine! I work retail thank God nobody rubs my belly yet lol dont think I would like that too much .hope everyone is well, been feeling Miles moving alot specially toward the evening. off to week 16 tomorrow see you all there :)

mandykat760 - 96 days ago
It's been confirmed we are having a boy. I'm over the moon! I'm officially excited about having a baby now. Hurry up April!

Babylove5 - 97 days ago
Supermom why do you have to see a heart specialist?

Sunshinebaby8 - 97 days ago
Hello everyone. I wanted to say hello and congrats to all!! Having a baby is such wonderful thing!!! We are welcoming baby number 8!! this will be our last one! I have four boys and three girls!! Just wanted to introduce myself. Hope everyone is feeling well!

sher-baby - 98 days ago
That's kind of funny supama...hopefully ur not too upset about telling ur boss. I get my belly rubbed the time at work!!! I wish I could charge for it! Lol ha!!

supama - 99 days ago
So, a lady asked me yesterday at the harvest festival if she could touch my belly...i guess i need to tell my boss tomorrow. Man, we havent told anyone yet. JUST sent pic announcements to family yesterday. Ahhhhhh!!!!

supermom87 - 100 days ago
I'm doing so much better been hectic I'm getting released from the hospital today I'm ecstatic I have to see a heart specialist as an outpatient once I get out of here didn't know it was that serious but I do now and I gotta start getting progesterone shots so this makes me have to see 2 specialists and my ob

babylove5 - 100 days ago
I felt the first good kick this morning! I still don't feel the little movements when listening with my Doppler. He must have to kick really hard for me to feel it.

babylove5 - 100 days ago
I hope you are doing better supermom.

supermom87 - 101 days ago
I haven't found out what I'm having yet when the hospital did ultrasound baby's legs were crossed and baby wouldn't move to a position to try and see what were having

Dec Baby - 101 days ago
Haha...babylove5! I have 6 girls and 2 boys and you are sooo right!! It's so true about the banging and crashing of toys:)) But I love them all the same! Congrats to those on blue team:)

halesss7410 - 101 days ago
I originally wanted to be surprised but I have a friend that scans me and it was too tempting. It would have been epic though already having two girks and getting our boy, but I'm glad I found out because u have nothing for a boy and we don't have family that would have bought a whole lot so we would have had to buy stuff immediately. Plus, I get to plan a boy nursery and prep for a boy! How fun. If only we could pick a name. We are both stuck. The Chinese calendar was correct for all 3 and also other signs that were diff in comparison to my girls.

sher-baby - 101 days ago
Lost of boys!!! I'm Kmfx that we to get a healthy baby boy too!!

babylove5 - 102 days ago
Congrats machala and pumpkin on your boys! I will say that my boys are all mommas boys but they have destroyed my house! They bang their cars on the wood furniture. Plus they slide down the rail and mess up the paint. I also don't recommend football unless you are ready to spend a lot of time at practice. They are awesome though!

sher-baby - 102 days ago
Oh and duh!! Congrats on ur baby boy!

sher-baby - 102 days ago
Oh I hope I can wait!! We usually only get 1 u/s during pregnancy unless they fear something is wrong or I can pay to have as long as I minimize the temptation (ie. only the 1 u/s), I should be able to do it!!!

babylove5 - 102 days ago
Sher I will be surprised if you can wait! Most people give in and find out. My mom didn't find out with my sister, and she only had a boy name picked out at birth. I am going to wash all my baby clothes and put them up until he gets here.

babylove5 - 102 days ago
It's a boy!!! I can't believe everybody is having boys, I wonder if they can tell sooner with boys. He was asleep and she shook him with the probe to see between his legs. She took one blurry shot!

sher-baby - 102 days ago
I agree dec baby! Sometimes I want to know but Then I decided that I REALLY don't want to know!!! It will be hard during any scan not to ask or even look to see if I see anything!! So far everything we have bought has been neutral color. And I plan on keeping it that way! :-)

Dec Baby - 102 days ago
Hi, just crashing in from week 18;) We've decided to have a surprise too! My scan is next will be hard not to ask, but I agree with you sherbaby! This will be one surprise worth waiting for:))

sher-baby - 102 days ago
Congrats ladies on having healthy lil baby's and also on finding out the gender!!

sher-baby - 102 days ago
Hi ladies, I tried 2 different Chinese gender predictors one said boy and one said girl :-/ lol (sorry lexy-b if that totally screws up ur plan! ) we don't plan on finding out the gender!! I know, DH thinks it's crazy to! I kind of want to be surprised! There Are not too many good surprises in life, so I want to be able to enjoy atleast 1 good surprise in my life :-). Anyone else letting the gender be a surprise or am I the only crazy one?? Lol

lexy-b - 102 days ago
I'm so jealous some of you know what you're having! My ultrasound isn't until Nov. 6th.... It's been booked for only 2 weeks & already feels like forever. Does your babies gender match up with the chinese calander? Lol

pumpkinfairy - 102 days ago
hi ladies cant believe week 15 already. had my harmony test and babys perfectly healthy and a boy :) hope you all are doing ok, I been hit with a very nasty cold, I been coughing so hard I think I pulled a muscle near my ribs

babylove5 - 102 days ago
Machala have you found out what you're having?

babylove5 - 103 days ago
Floy I am glad things are going well for you! I go tomorrow to the dr for a check up. The ultra sound tech told me to drop by tomorrow and she will look to see if it's a boy or girl!!I hope she can see something! I will flip out if its a girl. I have everything for boys.

floydianslip2 - 104 days ago
Well, I had my dr apt today, it went really well! Seems I have a stubborn baby in there because it wouldn’t cooperate for the Doppler again and it took them 4 minutes to find it! She could hear it echoing and said that the baby was “running” from it. We finally found it hiding behind my bladder. HB today was 157. So all is well, my BP is still in normal ranges, and my 24 hour urine test came back good, but I have to repeat it at the end of the 2nd trimester to make sure levels are all normal. And three weeks from today we find out the gender of our little peanut! I can’t wait!
