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.

MOMIIB - 8 days ago
Thanks Leanbean :-) I will update in the 16wks forum on Saturday :-)

leanbean - 10 days ago
Feeling pretty good still, but my blood sugar and blood pressure can't seem to find a happy place. Always too low! Anyone else struggle with this? MOMII~ Good luck at your scan! TA~So glad you're feeling good. It makes life a lot easier ;)

TA77 - 11 days ago
Yay finally the weekly forums have updated. How is eeveryone feeling. I am glad to say I have had no morning sickness for almost 2 weeks now and starting to feel really good.

loriandRichie - 11 days ago
When I had my last baby (12 years ago) 3d was just coming out so I've never had one. I def want to this time! :)

MOMIIB - 11 days ago
No, just 2d. They usually don't do 3d til your about 28-32wks. Thats when the baby looks super cute with baby fat :-) we plan to go back around 34 weeks or so. I am soo excited, Saturday cant get here fast enough!!!!

loriandRichie - 12 days ago
Nice! Is it a 3D?

MOMIIB - 12 days ago
LoriandRichie: sry, I guess I worded it wrong. My scan is next Saturday :-) we could find out this weekend but we aare waiting til next. The whole family (we are super small) is going :-) our appt is at 1030 :-) I will be 16wks2days :-)

loriandRichie - 13 days ago
MomIIB-was your scan today or next Saturday?

TA77 - 13 days ago
15 weeks today. I have my next scan on the 7th of May. The don't really do a scan till the morphology scan for gender here. So have to wait another 4 and a bit weeks to find out if we are being blessed with a boy or girl.

emlouise80 - 15 days ago
That's exciting momIIB! Hope it goes great!

MOMIIB - 16 days ago
First day in week 15 :-) gender scan next Saturday, cant wait!!!! :-)

JET3 - 26 days ago
yeah, I know what you mean. I'm about to turn 30, pregnant with my 3rd, and my youngest is almost 6! Although I've noticed as I get older each pregnancy gets harder on my body. With my first I was 20 and with my second I was 24.

mmomalley82 - 26 days ago
First time using this site..I'm 31 preg.with my 3rd baby but this is my first one in 11 years:) def feels like the first time all over again,!!!

oopixiesticks - 33 days ago

Lots of respect to you! i go nuts with my 2 I always think during the day... how do people do it with more than 3! -- I just booked an appointment for a 3d/4d ultrasound on march 28th! so 11 more days until I find out gender im soo anxious I wont be able to wait another month for my ob one

sarah6485 - 33 days ago
Monika01- hope your ok x

sarah6485 - 33 days ago
Oopixiesticks- im same think i may have felt something but not sure and this my 7th pregnancy

monika01 - 33 days ago
lots of ppl already knowing the gender.. nice. aim going to go private in 2 wks. going to ob on tue… went to l & d last night got a uti.. sucks my first one. otherwise starting mostly bed rest unto about 75-80% now as i have been having more pressure and it freaks me right out bc of this cerclage it hurts more.. going to demand a cervix check asap when i see my ob. i just want to know i am safe… ordering colouring books and started spring crafts with toddler so we are still doing something fun and creative…yay for 15.3

Baby ali - 34 days ago
I got my scan date April 11th will find out the gender but really nervous about it lolz dying to find out but scared at the same time if it's not wat I really want, I know I will probably b disappointed I feel so bad about it but can't help the feeling at the moment :0/

oopixiesticks - 35 days ago
babyali-that's great your husband is fine with another girl.. mine gets all down at the thought of it.. but only time will tell it's few more weeks until we can find out. Also I had hypermesis gravidarium with both my daughters my first was the worst but with both i was in the hospital with IVs because I couldn't keep food or water down.. both came out at 8pounds! this time the morning sickness is no where near as bad but still past the first trimester. I know someone who had horrible morning sickness all 9 months with her 2 boys. Cuppycakemama- do your ultrasounds usually come out clear? it'd be great if you can get your photo posted let us know ! if not don't worry about it

Baby ali - 35 days ago
I dnt no of thus is true or not but I was told if you have morning sickness and nausea for the first 12 weeks it's a girl and all my 3 pregnancies r the same first 3 months badly ill with sickness n nausea so am guessing this is a girl too

CuppycakeMama - 35 days ago
Grrr this is frustrating. Idk y but it's not letting me upload it from my phone. Anyone else have these issues before. I'm gonna try getting it on my profile and see if that'll work

CuppycakeMama - 35 days ago
Oopixiesticks I got a verrry clear shot. It was a ten minute scan of pretty much focusing on gender. She even did a side angle shot and not just a from below shot. There's absolutely no doubt. Lol. This is my Third boy and looks just like the rest of my boys ultrasounds. I went to a private company. I was worried about accuracy to but her shots and angles were very clear thank goodness. I'm going to post my u.s. pic in the ultrasound section on here.

Baby ali - 35 days ago
oop- same here if it's another girl wil be trying for a boy, my hubby is okay with having another girl but I badly want a boy :0( he keeps telling me it's good to have girls only coz girls are daddy's girls lol

oopixiesticks - 35 days ago
babyali- I wouldn't mind another girl because I already have everything and a whole bunch of girl toys but my husband is the one anxious for a boy and says this is our last no matter.. I just know if I get a 3rd girl I'd want to try the 4th for a boy.. and no it doesn't hurt didn't even notice when and how it happened but it looks funny when I lie down and get up like doing a sit up my stomach pops up by a bubble.. it was funny to see when I was pregnant with my last daughter the doctors would be like you can get up now and they;d see my stomach turn like an egg to get up :/

Baby ali - 35 days ago
oop- that's scary does it hurt wen that happens?? ur like me got two girls hoping and praying for a boy this time too :0)

oopixiesticks - 35 days ago
Babyali- I don't feel any movement either and this is my 3rd I can kind of feel something but not sure if it's the baby or my insides.. after I had my 1st I got diastasis recti where the stomach muscle splits so I always feel my insides moving around feels similar to baby moving. so not sure.. anxious for a scan though to make sure baby is ok

oopixiesticks - 35 days ago
Week 15 today :) still have morning sickness but now I've been feeling exhausted for 3 weeks now I had more energy in the first few weeks than now. I was also thinking of doing a 3d/4d ultrasound scan to find out the baby's gender.. Cuppycakemama- How sure were they with your scan? Do you have a photo shot that is clear? I'm hoping for a boy this time I have two girls and am anxious to find out but was worried about accuracy this early on and if they tell me the wrong gender.

CuppycakeMama - 36 days ago

I dnt feel anything and it's my 3rd baby - 37 days ago
sarah-i feel movement once in a while....i was expecting more at this point lol....ive had a bit of a pouch since my last pregnancy so i dont feel like im showing, i just feel pudgy. and i feel movement a few times a day but i seem to have to be in the right sitting with my knees up....every morning i wake up and dont feel pregnant anymore until i feel some flutters

sarah6485 - 38 days ago
Has anyone felt any movement yet? I swear i felt more by now only had little flutters but that was couple days ago and i never know if its baby or wind :-/

sarah6485 - 38 days ago
Tassie- that was funny i was reading that your husband done all that hahaha made me giggle i knew you ment your son when i got to his 5 haha

Baby ali - 38 days ago
good news for both of you :)

ladybug85 - 38 days ago
looks like a girl for us too. she was being difficult so he said he couldnt be positive. he got one shot that showed 3 lines so he's pretty sure it's a girl. i go back for another sonogram in 4 weeks. :) - 38 days ago
Of course! I have a boy already so a girl is great. I'm waiting for a more definitive answer during next scan but it def seemed girl but her clitorus is still slightly enlarged. But she had two lines as well going down. Was being shy and didn't want to go spread eagle for us. I also got put on weekly progesterone shots and bed rest due to my previous cervical surgery that shortened my cervix. Yay :/

Baby ali - 39 days ago
tassie- are you happy ur having a girl? did u want a girl?

Baby ali - 39 days ago
ladybug- do u no wat u r having? - 39 days ago
Looks like team pink! But dr was only 70% sure because it's so early... - 39 days ago
Haha just realized I put 'dh' instead of 'ds' on my last post on potty training. At dr now waiting for scan. Good luck to those who are also going today or soon!

ladybug85 - 40 days ago
super excited about my sono today! seems like forever since the first one. i love it when they actually look like a baby instead of a bean. hopefully the tech will be able to tell the gender as well! fingers crossed :)

Baby ali - 41 days ago
tassie- will find out the gender on next scan, hoping for a boy got two girls but dnt mind if it's another girl hubby will feel odd one out completely lol

Baby ali - 41 days ago
15 weeks today too yeppyyyy :0) - 41 days ago
15 weeks today! I got 'lucky' with dh. He used to hide and poo in his pants until Mother's Day he decided to go in his little potty by himself. Still trying to teach him to wipe his butt and he's almost 5 :/ does anyone know the gender of their baby yet?

tlc - 42 days ago
OMG my back acne is growing worse! I know from experience there is nothing I can do about it. I'll wear a bikini again in the summer of 2015.....

tlc - 43 days ago
My first was vaginal with help from induction after I started showing some early labor. The induction was primarily done for convenience-sake and no true medical reason. It was more like, 'well you are here so do you want to move this along or just go home?' We were too eager to see our first baby and we couldn't refuse. After induction, there were no complications. 12 hours labor in total. Baby #2 was breech, so there was no medical reason on MY part to have the C. So, they think I have a good chance of successful VBAC since my anatomy/health is alright.

jackie87 - 43 days ago
Tlc, did you have a C-section with both your girls or just one? Hopefully you'll go into labor before 41 weeks and get your VBAC with no complications! It's a bit away but definitely a good idea to have plans set in place, especially if there are several doctors who may end up taking over your care when you're in labor. I've lucked out both times in that my OB was available to deliver both my girls (though a resident actually did the work the second time), but there's always a possibility my doc could be on a weekend off or vacation and I'd have a strange doctor since my doc has her own private practice. It's cool that you at least get to meet with and have a rapport with more than one doc.

jackie87 - 43 days ago
I'll be with ya there tomorrow, Kristen! I don't think I look pregnant yet--just pudgy--but I definitely FEEL pregnant. The flutters and pops are ever more frequent. Pretty soon we'll be halfway!

kristen27 - 43 days ago
