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.

Dec Baby - 14.9 hours ago
Bond...glad you were able to hear your baby's heart beat! I haven't felt early movements from my last three pregnancies and it was all to do with the position of the placenta! I'm just enjoying these early days because I know that soon enough we'll all be wrestling little feet and elbows..hehe I'm from Australia so we are just starting to warm up:))

bond_jade@hotmail.co.uk - 1 days ago
I spoke to the midwife today about not feeling the baby really moving.she did the heart beat and we heard loads of movement. She suggested that maybe the placenta is in the way so when this eventually moves ill be able to feel the kicks x

bond_jade@hotmail.co.uk - 2 days ago
Thank you Dec baby. I prefer this site too :-) I was only thinking today that I haven't really felt the baby move.not like my other 2 pregnancy's. Iv had to buy maternity clothes.im in the UK so our summer (not that there is ever much of 1)is over.i will now be living in jeans and leggings :-( what's ever ones dues date?mines 20th March so on Friday ill be moving to 16 weeks :-)

lisa.perez1983@yahoo.com - 2 days ago
I started buying maternity clothes a couple weeks ago. My pants were too uncomfortable! Where are you located Dec baby? It's fall here. Still have some nice weather, but it's going to start getting cooler soon. This is my first pregnancy where I won't be pregnant and huge in the summer! 16 weeks tomorrow!

Dec Baby - 3 days ago
Well, I'm soon heading off to week 16...oh my, I seriously have to go shopping...none of my maternity clothes fit, they're all way to big! I'm going to have to buy some summer clothes! I think I'm also going to have to get a pressure stocking made as one of my legs has some varicose veins and is becoming seriously painful! I'm still not feeling too much movement from baby yet, just little flutters here and there! anyhow hope you girls are having a good week...I'm soo happy for the warmer weather...bring on summer:))

Dec Baby - 3 days ago
Hi bond_jade...I'm actually not sure of the FB group...I know that there was one made earlier for all the mums due in March...but I didn't join;) If you scroll back you'll find out how to join, otherwise 1st time has given youa link;) I really like this website and following the weekly updates, so I guess I'm not so interested in joining FB

Dec baby- not so much but ive been trying to keep it easy. I went to my appt went great got stopped by one of my local news stations wanting to use me for a story on pregnant woman and flu shots. They said free ultrasound so I said yes. Love seeing my baby. Tried to find gender but baby had there legs crossed. Since then I couldnt wait so im going back on tuesday to find out. Im so excited!

Dec Baby - 5 days ago
bond_jade...Congratulations and welcome back! Well I'm sad to say that a lot of the girls due in march have joined FB groups! But there are a few of us who post regularly here, anyhow all the best for your 4d scan:) We are still deciding whether to find out or not :S I would love a surprise, but oh boy having to come up with two names would almost kill me...haha Let us know what you're having when you find out!! Exciting :)) @1st time momma...we have to enjoy these days when our babes are still small and not causing too pain with their little internal soccer matches...hehe I hope you're OK...did you do anything active that may have strained muscles? I guess it's good that you had your dr app so soon:)

bond_jade@hotmail.co.uk - 6 days ago
Yay it feels so good to be back on this forum :-) I used this on my last pregnancy nearly 4 years ago and made new friends and got loads of helpful advice. I hope this time around everyone is just as chatty at the last time :-) happy pregnancy everyone. I'm 15 weeks today.have a 4d scan next week so will be finding out what I'm having. Exciting :-)

1st.time.momma - 6 days ago
Dec baby- I know exactly what you mean. So excited to ve in wk15 but going by too fast. I have another dr appt tomorrow. Excited/nervous, all day today ive been having sharp pains like im being jolted or stabbed. Hope its just ligament pain or something normal. On another note baby is really active. Constantly tickling me at night. Im never going to get any sleep when the baby really starts to kick and move.

Dec Baby - 7 days ago
Wow...15 weeks!!! Time is starting to fly by very quickly now! I want to try and enjoy every bit of 2nd trimester:)

joready2glo - 28 days ago
Hi guys. 15 weeks tomorrow. Getting the worse headaches. Had them constantly for a week now. Anyone know when they will stop? Tried changing my diet but nothing helps. Paracetomol not doing anything. I was crying with the pain today. Only way to get rid of them is to lie down in adark room for an hour. A bit difficult with a 4 year old runn7ng about.

klawest2 - 29 days ago

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 52 days ago
NICOLA2010 - No kicks here..but i have felt the baby for sure just a little tickle twice now but days and days apart. Not many people really feel baby this early I don't think.But since i's my second i am more aware so i think that's why i felt it. but defiantly no actual kicks or anything..

We will be 18 wks with 2 appts back to back. Hope everyone is having little to no m/s and constipation free. This momma to be isn't!

NICOLA2010 - 54 days ago
kimberly.giet@gmail.com.. that sounds like a good tip.. if i get sciatic pain will think of this

kimberly.giet@gmail.com - 54 days ago
Mommychech, welcome to our group! I also have sciatic pain with this pregnancy. I had it with my last pregnancy as well. I've found ways to temporarily relieve the pain. I'm not sure it will work further in the pregnancy however. The trick is to find a position that releases the pressure to the nerve. I've found that laying on my left side while extending my right knee to the front of my body when sleeping helps greatly. It stretches the right inner thigh muscle and helps shift the weight of my uterus. Hope it helps!!!

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 55 days ago
mommychech - i had really bad sciatic pain with my first pregnancy from 9 weeks on..this one I've been lucky and it is just random and doesn't last long. but with my last pregnancy i can tell you there's not much you can do about it..it's caused by your uterus putting pressure on the nerve. I did find sitting with a heating pad on it felt nice..but NOTHING got rid of it until the uterus stopped pushing it..sorry to tell ya! Hope you are feeling well. kimberly.giet@gmail.com - i'm also sick of feeling sick..hopefully it passes for us both soon i feel like it's dragging out time around. So this is my second pregnancy and i'm pretty positive i've felt little peanut in there already..not kicks or anything obvious but a few little tickles here and there! I dunno what else it could be but a little peanut moving around in there..it's so cute and tickles only felt it twice mind you but i know it was baby! But i cannot wait until i feel actual kicks and punches..then it's more real!

NICOLA2010 - 55 days ago
sorry got it wrong way round j meant the placenta is anterior at front of uterus

NICOLA2010 - 55 days ago
anyone know where their placenta is? mines posterior which means at front of uterus in front of baby... which explains which explains why doctor had hard time finding heart beat.. and the real downside to posterior placenta is i wont be able to feel the kicks till later.. i first felt kicks at 20 weeks with my daughter my son 18 weeks.. preety sure that their placenta was anterior cos i felt super strong kicks with them two

NICOLA2010 - 55 days ago
mommychech.... for headaches i had them tons first trimester.. had one last week seem to be easing off. its just hormones.. not much u can do but drink water and rest.. when u feel one coming on stop what ur doing and close ur eyes.. and relax.. often though u will still get it.. i foind an early night helped to sleep it off.. i took tylnenol too.. cos my headaches were soo bad.. and cool wash cloth on forehead

NICOLA2010 - 55 days ago
mommychech... hi welcome and congratz.. glad ur 1st trimester was great... this is my 3rd baby.. my 1st trimester also went very well.. no nausea.. knd 2nd trimester and has been harder.. ive also suffered constipation.. i think diet extremly importatnt.. ive noticed sinse ive been eating peanut buttter on toast its helped me go.. drink plenty of water.. i put my water bottle in freezer..fruit and veg of course

NICOLA2010 - 55 days ago
kimberly.giet@gmail.com.. i feel so bad for you.. ur baby must be fast grower.. dunno about ur muscle.. spasms.. sounds like baby growing fast muscles stretching.. once a day i get some stretching pains. google it.. as ur doctor.. hope ur nausea goes soon

mommychech - 56 days ago
Hi Gals! First time mom here, EDD January 25. First trimester was a breeze, but now dealing with sciatic pain, constipation, headaches...anyone else? Looking for tops to relieve these symptoms.

kimberly.giet@gmail.com - 56 days ago
Is anyone else having weird muscle spasms (or something) that feels EXACTLY like baby moving? I'm having them every day now, I think, and have been for about a week probably. I'm 16 weeks on Monday for sure so I know it can't be baby....hmmm...any thoughts?

kimberly.giet@gmail.com - 56 days ago
I'm tired of feeling g sick. I feel better most mornings but get sick again around 1pm. At first I was happy that I at least have a few hours now because the first three months I had zero hours but now I'm just feeling greedy. I'm so done with the nausea as I'm sure we all are :-/

NICOLA2010 - 56 days ago
chsaamanen@hotmail.com yup i feel like its flying by too.. oh cool.. what a great idea having day care in ur house much cheaper eh.. how many kids u take care of? what u gonna do when u have baby? yes i dont feel super connected or pregnant till i start feeling baby move eithe.. seriosuly cant wait to feel bsby move.. i hold my belly cos i feel the bump.. but wish i could feel his or her parts moving around

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 56 days ago
I find right now..i'm in that weird i forget im pregnant stage, which i hate! My belly is getting bigger but i can't feel baby move yet so i just want that to start then it feels more real and i feel more at ease! Anyone else feel that way?

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 56 days ago
NICOLA2010 I hear ya..but at least it keeps us busy, i don't know about you but I find when I'm this busy it's flying by i can't believe im at 15 weeks already. I hope that continues. I have a little boy..but yes he comes to my daycare! My daycare is located in my basement I opened it up so I could stay with my son..and I'm a E.C.E (Early childhood educator) so i worked in daycare already! It's exhausting being on my own though I considered hiring a helper! I may have to at this rate.

NICOLA2010 - 56 days ago
chsaamanen@hotmail.com... yeah with my daughter i use to do a video journal and i was saying i feel great by now.. thats so cool u have a a daycare.. do u take ur daughter there too? i guess i kind of expected to feel good.. but didnt take into axxount i have two kids lol.. i think in hindsight its a different kind of exhqustion to when baby is here.. cos i remember when pregnant with my son i aas quite exhausted cos i had a toddler.. now more so tired.. but goto keep the wheels moving cos i have kids and cant just sit lol

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 57 days ago
NICOLA2010 - sorry to hear you aren't feeling well, I'm super exhausted as well. way more then with my first. But I have my own daycare and a 2 1/2 year old so I think that's the cause of the extra exhaustion!! Hopefully we both shake this sickness soon. Ahh well..all part of it!

NICOLA2010 - 57 days ago
chsaamanen@hotmail.com... hey welcome back.. aww sorry to hear that.. i feel worse now then i did in my first trimester baby must be super taking it out of me.. prob dont help i have 2 little ones.. and cos itd summer they wanna have summer fun.. prob b easier kn september when daughter goes back to school.. and things slow down a bit.. ive been feeling a tiny nauseus too.. and i barely had any nausea in first trimester.. im always hungry, and sooo picky with food..
