Your baby's crown-to-rump length is 5.2 to 6 inches this week. Your baby weighs approximately 7 ounces and will increase its weight more than 15 times between now and birth!
Most women can feel their uterus about a half of an inch below their bellybutton at this point of pregnancy. If you turn to the side, you can really tell that your body is changing! Most women have gained up to 14 pounds now and only 7 ounces of that is your baby! The placenta weighs about 6 ounces and the amniotic fluid that surrounds your baby weighs 11 ounces. Your breasts have increased in weight by 6 ounces each and the uterus has grown to 11 ounces! You may be gaining weight in places other than your abdomen and this may be affecting your posture and sleeping habits.
One of the most amazing aspects of your baby's growth and development is that of the fetal brain. Your baby's brain is one of the first organs to appear. Your baby's oversized head shows the brain's importance in his development. Because the nerves that connect the muscles to the brain have grown into place, your baby's movements are consciously directed. Your baby's ears stand out from the sides of the head and the buds for your baby's permanent teeth appear. Your baby's arms and legs have reached their relative proportions and his feet are approximately one inch long.

Omg I'm SO out of breath all the time. It's driving me crazy. I feel like I can't get ANY chores done. I'm so pooped if I even walk from my bedroom to the kitchen. I just went grocery shopping and it took everything I had just to finish the shopping! I'm praying that it doesn't get any worse toward the end. I can handle the aches and pains at the end, but the completely out of breath crap is so annoying! Doing good in the pregnancy so far. I've gained 1-2 lbs depending on what I ate the day before ;) I was 30lbs over weight to begin with, so I'm hoping not to gain a ton. Would like to stay under 200lbs.

It was great seeing our baby but our ultrasound tech didn't tell us anything. We have to wait to see our doctor to hear if baby is healthy and is a boy or girl. I hate the wait!

Good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking about you. Ultrasounds are so exciting and scary!

Tomorrow is my 2 hour ultrasound. Because my last son was born without kidneys, we have to check baby's organs all out etc. I can't wait to go and know that the baby is developed. I'm so nervous but trying to keep it together.

That will be super exciting! We have trouble deciding on names so finding out will help us narrow down one sex.

I don't feel my little one move that much probably because I'm overweight with this one but I've only gained 5 pounds so far. Ultrasound next week we are not finding out the sex,surprise baby. Very exciting

Feeling good! I am going for an ultrasound in a few days and will hopefully find out if we're having a boy or girl. So exciting! I woke up last night with a hard belly on one side, not sure if it was a bum, a head or what. I am definitely feeling good and know this is the best part of pregnancy! How about everyone else?
