Born & Birth stories

Close up of the face and hands The right foot, including the developing bones, are clearly visible in the middle of the screen

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.

Kathy congratulations on your 4th boy! what a special family! :)

lissie**** - 27 days ago
I think the band is a great idea. Especially if you don't tend to gain weight in butt/legs during pregnancy. I lost 10 so i was able to wear normal pants till about now 22 weeks for me. Now a belly band would be perfect. I've gained it all back too haha. and I know I'll need only bigger or maternity pants at some point here soon.

kathy=^.^= - 27 days ago
I'm having another boy lol this makes 4 boys for me

jh1983 - 28 days ago
Britt// I will try them out. I ended up buying a maternity shirt yesterday and it makes me look HUGE. My kids were telling me how big my belly was.

brittplus3 - 29 days ago
Jh1983- I have belly beBands from target. I'm almost to the point to where I can't wear them anymore and it's strictly just maternity clothes. BUT I think they work well. You can unbutton and unzip your shorts/pants and put the band over. Works great!

jh1983 - 29 days ago
I am dreading the day when I have to buy maternity clothes. I am trying to be cheap and not buy any as long as I can. Unfortunately, when I wear my regular shorts, or even my comfy shorts, the baby starts moving like crazy. Maybe there is too much pressure on her. Does anyone use those Bella band things? Do they work? I don't want to be trying to drag my britches up every few minutes.

kathy=^.^= - 29 days ago
Sooo excited I get to find out the sex of the baby tomorrow

jk85 - 32 days ago
kathy, glad you are still here, no scan for me till 24 weeks. Dh is besides himself wants to find out the sex so bad

Juliemom24 - 32 days ago
Kathy, I'm so glad that baby is still hanging in there! You're not too far away now!

jh1983 - 33 days ago
Two more weeks until the next scan :) I can't wait to see this little baby.

lissie**** - 33 days ago
Good to hear you are feeling baby and have stopped bleeding Kathy!!! :))

kathy=^.^= - 34 days ago
I get so excited when I make it to another week. Finally my bleeding has stopped but I don't know if my hematoma is gone yet but I'll find out next week. I have also been feeling the baby move and I love it! Hope everyone is doing good :)

lissie**** - 39 days ago
Juliesmom// Yes my daughter and DH are very happy. My daughter has been making gifts and cards etc for her sister since she found out. My husband is able to get even more excited and into the pregnancy. He would still love bubs and get excited but now hes REALLY excited :)

lissie**** - 42 days ago
I know I tried to be open to either but now taht we know it is a girl I feel so good about it. It feels balanced and complete as compared to before I knew. Can't explain. It's almost like I am appreciating my boys even more knowing we prob won't have any more. It's a great feeling to just know. :)

Juliemom24 - 42 days ago
Congrats Lissie! A girl! Your husband and daughter must be dying! Jszabs, congrats on the boy! You two are so lucky to get what you wanted!

letroise11 - 42 days ago
Yeah! Lissie im so happy for y'all! You must have some really good juju to be so blessed!

lissie**** - 42 days ago
JsZabs Lol your DH peeing himself haha. COngrats on your boy! Found out today we are getting the GIRL we were hoping for!!! DH said his heart was racing so fast just before she told us! Our daughter was THRILLED to be having a sister! //JUliemom// How cute/fun you announced with cupcakes and they didn't know it was coming!!! :) //Letroise// yes we are on the opposite track! ha ha! Hopefully you get another boy!

jszabs - 42 days ago
Almost half way there! We just found out this morning we are having a boy! We currently have 2 girls, and this is definitely the last baby, so we are pretty thrilled!! I cried when I found out, and I am pretty certain hubby peed himself a little! haha Hope everyone is feeling well, and ultrasounds are going accordingly! :)

Juliemom24 - 43 days ago
Hope you get your girl Lissie and your boy Letroise. We announced to our families last night. I made cupcakes with a blue filling and then frosted them with both pink and blue. It was fun to watch them pick the color they thought it was and then bite into it and see boy. Everyone was really surprised since we didn't let anyone know that we found out.

letroise11 - 43 days ago
Lissie- it's crazy that your on the opposite end. I feel like having a boy is a miracle yet you can have them at a blink of your eye. My son is treated like a king by everyone mainly cause we never thought we would have one. At least I'll still have a few months to get used to the idea no matter what the baby is.

lissie**** - 43 days ago
Lol letroise that is the same reason we decided to wait for Dr to do the scan and not pay for one early. My DH said he feel upset if we paid for the ultrasound just to find out early it wasn't a girl!

letroise11 - 44 days ago
I had that option to pay. I live close to a ' Baby love' 3D/4D ultrasound place but I was at odds. I felt like id being willing to pay only if the told me it was a boy. And honestly that not fair. So I'll wait a week and half more.

lissie**** - 45 days ago
Juliesmom// I would have paid too if I were you!!!

Juliemom24 - 45 days ago
Lissie, that's good to hear. I want my kiddos to be friends. Letroise, I'm sure that's torture! I wasn't supposed to find out til 25 weeks but I paid to find out early cause I couldn't wait.

lissie**** - 47 days ago
Thanks letroise11! I'll be almost 21 weeks and that seems like forever. 22 is crazy long. //Juliesmom// every girl needs a sister ;) I had a girl then a boy too and they are still bff! :)

letroise11 - 47 days ago
Lissie- I've been keeping my fingers crossed and thinking team girl for you as well. I feel like I'm never going to get to find out. By the time I get my u/s I'll already be in week 22.

Juliemom24 - 47 days ago
I really, really wanted another girl for my daughter since she only has boy cousins her age but I'm getting excited about a boy too. We were really surprised when we heard 'boy'.

lissie**** - 48 days ago
letroise11// Lets hope you do have a brother for your son!! And I get a sister for my daughter! But I honestly am getting excited about the idea of another boy at least I can be okay with a boy too. My daughter and DH will be devastated lol.

lissie**** - 48 days ago
awww! you are going to love having a boy!!!

letroise11 - 48 days ago
Yeah for team boys!!! Im really hoping for a second boy. Congrats!!!!

Juliemom24 - 48 days ago
double-post: ultrasound showed 80% sure of a boy! The baby was in a tiny ball so she couldn't get a great shot. One foot was up by it's face and the other was straight down on my bladder. Can't wait to meet this little guy!

lissie**** - 50 days ago
I find out next monday at our anatomy scan!!! I'm excited and nervous :) //mommy2mason// Through the years I've been online with pregnancy I've seen several mommas go through what you are facing. Luckily none of them ended up having anything that didn't resolve! The odds are really on your side. But I know that doesn't take away your worry. Hugs. You will do great with 3! and your twins are very blessed to have each other. your older child will also be so blessed to have two siblings! They just don't know it yet ;) Siblings enrich each others lives so much! But I can't imagine you feel anything less than overwhelmed with the idea of not only tripling your mommy load but possibly have additional special needs. I hope everything resolves perfectly. Can't imagine what you going through emotionally not knowing!

jezzicarabbit1 - 52 days ago
Mommy2mason I am so sorry about the news you received that has to be so stressful, hopefully everything will turn out to be normal for your little one. I had an ultrasound at 17 weeks and they said I am having a girl but I have another scan on Monday and i am waiting to see if they say girl too. Not 100% convinced yet :)

letroise11 - 52 days ago
Also my u/s isn't scheduled till the 31st. So no true confirmation here😞

letroise11 - 52 days ago
Mommy2mason- I am sorry to hear that. My step daughter had the same thing but fortunately it dissolved and she is a healthy 5 year old. Hopefully the same will be for your little one.

mommy2mason - 53 days ago
Well, we found out on Tuesday that we are having two girls! Unfortunately, baby A has a cyst on her brain that needs to be monitored. The cyst is apparently pretty common and is likely to go away on its own. However, if it doesn't, it means baby A will have Trisomy 18 - a sever brain disorder. So after the ultrasound specialist tells me all the horrific things that comes along with Trisomy 18, she tells me not to worry. Really?! That's all I've been doing. I wish she wouldn't have told me. I have to go see another specialist on the 29th for a more in depth ultrasound. Anyway - that aside, my 4 year old is not too excited about having two sisters. I'm really starting to feel overwhelmed with the thought of having three kiddos. I thought we were done at 1! Have any of you found out the gender of your baby yet?

lissie**** - 53 days ago
letroise, I like how this is more private also.

lissie**** - 53 days ago
I think you are in my group April :) I think I even added you to both by email. They used to be Nov/Dec but changed the name to Dec.

letroise11 - 53 days ago
Aprilrose- I too am from south texas so I can imagine your parenting style is very different from others. My dm is from Seattle he said your are not allowed to displine your children at all there. I couldn't imagine.

letroise11 - 53 days ago
I am not in any groups nor do I have FB. I work with a lot of woman and I guess I get my support and advice from them. This site is good for me. It's easy, informative and private.

begin.again - 53 days ago
I'm almost half way there! I'll be 20 weeks in a couple of days!! :)

aprilrose - 53 days ago
You're in the dec group? I'm In a nov (not tied to IAP) and dec, and the IAP 2014. The 2014 is okay for asking questions but too many people to get to know. I Also feel like I have different parenting styles than a lot Of the people In the geoup

lissie**** - 54 days ago
But many of them are much further along or have had babies already etc. So the our smaller group is kind of going through same things together, you know?

lissie**** - 54 days ago
my sister added me to the IAP facebook group for the year 2014 and they are awesome. It's 300-400 ladies and all are supportive, kind and amazing :)

lissie**** - 54 days ago
I blame FB for this site slowing ha ha! ;) I'm in that group and another though and it's easy access and just another way to support each other.

aprilrose - 54 days ago
I'm in a nov due date fb group that's nice. About 15 moms if anyone wants to join

letroise11 - 54 days ago
That's horrible that they would just get on a site to be mean to each other. I guess some people have nothing better to do with their time.

lissie**** - 55 days ago
I know what you mean. I'm disappointed too and have found other sites. I've tried babycenter but the ladies on that site can be really mean to each other. So I get annoyed too much with them tearing each other down.

lissie**** - 55 days ago
I sent you a message :)

jezzicarabbit1 - 55 days ago
That would really be better although other weeks seem really quiet too. This site was so helpful when I was pregnant with my first. It was so nice being able to compare with other mommys
