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.

mmomalley82-That is awesome you are finally feeling your little one move! I started feeling my little one move a lot since last week and it is always the neatest feeling when you first start feeling them move.

mmomalley82 - 6 days ago

jackie87 - 19 days ago
Awesome, Tlc! I hope the combo helps keep you yeast free. Definitely no fun at all. See you in 20 weeks tomorrow :)

tlc - 19 days ago
Here's an article on the health benefits of sauerkraut in pregnancy (who knew? apparently Jackie!). Does say it has a probiotic effect. Anyhow, since the yeast infection a few weeks ago I've been taken a natural probiotic pill supplement every day. So far, so good. Doc said it's ok.

tlc - 19 days ago
I absolutely LOVE sauerkraut and have a jar in the fridge. Now I'm going to get some!!! Thanks!

jackie87 - 19 days ago
Tlc, you may not like it (many don't--I love it), but have you tried eating sauerkraut? About a quarter cup each day (don't quote me on that but about that much), is said to cleanse yeast out of the gut. I'm wondering if that might help?? I've read it's very healthy for pregnant women.

tlc - 19 days ago
I just came from my monthly appointment rounding through all the OBs in the practice (4 MDs + midwife). Met with my least fave one today, and let him know my preference for VBAC. He says he's only seen the big complication once (baby died, mom nearly), so that's still good odds for me. I've been told this doc is the least likely to let me go for VBAC in the practice, so I'm glad to hear he's only had one disaster in his roster - and he's old. I also mentioned that I had a yeast infection a few weeks ago and needed prescription cream for it, and he said it's likely going to come back simply because I'm pregnant and it's always yeasty down there in pregnancy. Didn't seem to care that I've had 2 previous pregnancies and only had 1 or 2 yeast infections with each pregnancy of 9 months each. Thanks for the hope doc! (sarcasm).

jackie87 - 19 days ago
Tassie, we have Lush here but I honestly can't even go in the store. The smell is overpowering from steps away whether the location is in a shopping mall or on the street, I have to avoid it, haha. I might have to look into sending hubby in one day. Tlc, I've also typed reports on more than one woman who didn't know she was pregnant too, so it's not just sensationalized pseudo reality tv, haha! I don't get it either, but I've never had anterior placenta to my knowledge so can't relate. Some women must have very active bowel gas to not realize the difference. - 19 days ago
Yes I just found out I have an anterior placenta. :/ explains why I have barely felt anything other than a roll or jab here and there. Still not even 100% that it was baby. I'm hoping he is anterior and not posterior because that's how women can go a whole preg and not feel anything. That would suck. As for itchy skin, I'm not sure if you have a store called Lush or not but they have all organic lotions and soaps that are amazing! My son had the worst excema as a baby and the dream cream lotion took it away and I have never seen it since. They have no preservatives or bpa or any of the nasty crap you don't want in your kids blood stream.

tlc - 19 days ago
Jackie - I was just thinking about that the other day - those girls who didn't know they were preg until they gave birth. How do they not feel baby movement?!!! Maybe at the beginning, but certainly not at the end!

jackie87 - 20 days ago
Halfway point today! Time seems to be going by faster now that it's warming up (ish).

jackie87 - 20 days ago
I completely agree, lil! And it makes sense for me when I see shows like 'I didn't know I was pregnant' because apparently the stereotypical pregnancy signs don't relate to everyone! I'm sure your baby is fine, Ashley! :)

lil.pigz - 20 days ago
Ashley3 - I havent felt this baby move either. Once in a while I will feel what I assume are flutters or a tapping, but NOTHING that jumps out and says 'baby.' My DR isnt concerned though and I find the heartbeat on doppler whenever I am worried, so I know baby is alive and well, just not very active, or not active enough yet to feel. I know it is worrisome to hear others who have felt their babies for weeks. Each baby, each woman and every pregnancy is different though and a lot of factors play into it as well, wether the uterus is tipped, anterior placenta, etc.

tlc - 20 days ago
I also like the Aveeno Baby Eczema one. Works on my daughter's rashes.

ladybug85 - 20 days ago
kady: my son has the same problem during the winter months. Aveeno makes an eczema lotion that works really well. i also like vaseline brand total moisture. i use that one myself :)

Ashley3 - 21 days ago
So I know I posted last week that I haven't felt any definite kicks yet, and so everyday since then I'm thinking okay maybe today is the day I'll finally really feel her, and still NOTHING. I swear if it wasn't for my growing tummy I wouldn't think I was pregnant. Should I be worried that I haven't felt her yet???

jackie87 - 21 days ago
I'm reporting this as I somehow deleted it...oy. Kady, I use Aveeno for my kids...I find it is very hypoallergenic. I bought some sensitive Live Clean cream for my daughter, and it gave her a horrible rash. I thought it smelled too fragrant to be truly hypoallergenic and sure enough she looked like she had a sunburn for about an hour. I've never done oatmeal baths but I was told not to bathe them too much or in water that is too warm as that will dry skin out too!

jackie87 - 21 days ago
Yep, it's very reassuring! And nice to know baby is growing and getting stronger as they become more pronounced. :)

tlc - 21 days ago
I love every minute of my baby kicks....though I wasn't that fond near the end when Audrina (who was breech) would kick my bladder. I don't remember Sienna (who was head down) giving me those painful kicks in the ribs everyone talks about, but I do remember some part of her felt permanently lodged in one of my rib cages. So I'm enjoying these tiny fetal baby kicks....for now...its so reassuring!!!

jackie87 - 21 days ago
All my worry on Monday morning about not feeling my baby move and the little person is beating me up today. It's starting to feel less weird though. I find the first couple weeks of kicks feel so bizarre.

jackie87 - 21 days ago
Tlc, I just keep them at home too. I never was desperate enough to carry them on me, mind you I work from home so that was always convenient. One lady said she kept hers in the fridge and my issue with that is that I'd probably forget to go grab them before going to the washroom, haha.

kadyrae1107 - 21 days ago
Okay ladies this really isn't pregnancy relates but my two year has been itching her body non stop. Since birth I've always used Johnson & Johnson baby lotion and bath soap! There's no rashes or even red patches (excema) but her skin is really dry and rough!! Its mostly on legs, thighs, belly, sides shoulders and back. Just recently the top of her hands have been dry and rough. I always put lotion on her after the bath and every time before getting her dressed. I called her pediatrician this morning and he said if there's no rashes or patches to not be worried. But she's constantly itching its driving me nuts!!! I feel bad cause she can't stop. He told me to try using aveeno baby lotion and soap. And even oatmeal baths. Has anyone ever delt with any of this before with there LO?

tlc - 21 days ago
Oh I did use lots of Tucks, but only at home. I think they would leak through my pants if I was at work or something, or I was afraid others would smell them.

tlc - 21 days ago
I found that the suppositories were better than creams because I could never really tell if/how much of the cream was going in when I squeezed the tube.

jackie87 - 21 days ago
Hahaha, yeah three pregnancies in and I don't give a flip about TMI, but I felt so timid being 21 and not being able sit--or do the other thing that rhymes with it, haha. My best remedy was just Tucks pads daily as needed and hydrocortisone cream or Anusol for when the pain or itch got too bad. I've never had any yeast issues, thankfully.

tlc - 21 days ago's this for hemorrhoid TMI - the most helpful thing I found was a blue solution that you mixed in a sitz bath and sat in. Helped a lot with the roids but gave me a raging yeast infection! I think I was too scared to try it again and just be more careful about not getting it in the vagina. Perhaps might need to try it again. There should never be anything TMI on this site, IMO.

tlc - 21 days ago
Oh Jackie - I will always be in your week - post away on hemorrhoids! I consider myself an expert - not in how to deal with them, just an expert on the experience of them. I did start using some suppositories last week for some beginning soreness. But the real pain awaits....I know it's coming!

jackie87 - 21 days ago
I get annoyed with FB based on what other people are constantly posting and it ending up on my newsfeed...I agree with the paranoia in having someone see a legit pregnancy question which may be of a 'TMI' nature, hahahaha. Even with my first pregnancy, I had private messages on here because I was too shy to ask about haemorrhoids. Which reminds me I'll be buying some Tucks pretty soon. Seems to become a problem sooner with each pregnancy.

stublit - 21 days ago
ladybug85 I don't have you!!! I just have Funtimemum80 and Ashley3 for girls. I will add you!

stublit - 21 days ago
It just all depends on the group settings. Ours are secret groups so you can't even search for it. I've used my husbands fb to make sure my posts weren't showing in the newsfeed!

tlc - 21 days ago
Stublit - thankfully I never posted a preg question on my personal FB page, but I did once put a post on my over 40 and pregnant FB group that was meant to be on my personal page. No big deal in the long run, but it made me so paranoid about posting preg stuff. I now double check anytime I post rpreg questions!

ladybug85 - 21 days ago
stublit: i'm having a girl if i'm not already on your list. i'm a couple days behind you guys though. 19 weeks today :)

stublit - 22 days ago
The secret Facebook groups don't show up in other peoples newsfeeds. I can't stand that feature. I'd hate for my friends to see my posts about leaking nipples and hemorrhoids! But I can totally understand not wanting another group.

jackie87 - 22 days ago
So sorry you're feeling down in the dumps, Kady. :( I can empathize somewhat as my husband has been out of town 3 weeks in a row, but luckily was home on the weekends. It's tiring after a while. I had to phone my dad for a few minutes today just to talk. Because it's spring break, my 4 yo is home from school too, so add my full time job (which I do from home), plus mommy duties all day and no adults, save for the few work emails I get, I totally get the loneliness and lack of adult companionship. I have insane respect for single parents. It will be over soon! You've already come this far and so has he! You're an amazing mom by making your little girl feel normal during this rough time.

kadyrae1107 - 22 days ago
Ughh ladies I'm having a horrible evening. Today me and my two year old daughter took a walk to the park and when we got back I put her down for a nap. Right after she fell asleep my whole mood chsnged. I got real sad, depressed and lonely. As you all know, hubby is gone until may 2. Its been thirty days since I've seen him. I've been crying on and off all evening. I don't know why I'm feeling like this all of a sudden. We had a great morning and afternoon! I'm just so tired of being home alone and him not here. I mean yes I have the baby here but there's only so much socialization you can do with a two year old!! I just miss my man and can't wait until he's home and just hanging out with me watching TV or playing with Kennadie! I feel so alone.. - 22 days ago
Two Sundays ago I went and got a private scan and it was confirmed a boy. I didn't have my hopes up for one or the other. So second boy is fine with me. Dh and mil wanted a girl but have come to terms with it and are both planning when we will try again for a girl. Lol. Little do they know that this is more than likely it for me. I'm over being pregnant and don't want to change diapers for next 5 years or so. But who knows...? I had my 20 week ultrasound at 17 weeks 5 days and dr says everything looks good. Forgot to ask where my placenta is because I'm having a feeling it's in the front. I barely feel anything of it's even baby! Being my second, and my first I felt at 16 weeks makes me think I won't be feeling this one for a while. Grr. I hope they resolve the issues here so it'll be less scrambled. I think more women in our weeks would join. :) but at least we have some good women in here already.

jackie87 - 22 days ago
I unfortunately don't connect with anyone anymore from past pregnancies. I'm not really looking for a FB group experience though. Haha. I'd be interested in friending on FB because I enjoy private messages but don't like my correspondence showing up on people's newsfeeds. Tlc, my div never told me where my placenta was. My next appt. isn't until the end of the month, but it's possible it's anterior. I was told everything was normal, so I never asked many questions, haha. I think baby was just tired yesterday. Last night, it was more active.

tlc - 22 days ago
Gotta say I'm so glad so many of us are on team BLUE. I've been honest with all of you that I'm so nervous about having a boy. Glad you all will be right there with me!
