13 Weeks Pregnant

Baby’s looking sweeter than ever this week, and you are entering new territory. Plus, is there a “Goldilocks” solution for where to deliver your baby?

  • Baby at 13 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    This week, baby is the size of a peach, and she’s looking sweeter than ever. Measured crown to rump, she’s about 3 inches long. Her head occupies half of that length, but this will be changing. By 20 weeks, her head will make up only a third of that length, and at birth, it will account for just a quarter of her crown-to-rump length. In other words, she will be perfectly proportioned once it's time to meet her!

    Your baby’s organs are on the move. It’s crazy to think about, but until now, her intestines have been developing outside of her body, and inside the umbilical cord. But starting this week, they’re migrating to their more permanent home inside her body.

    Here’s something even crazier to think about. If you’re having a girl, she already has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Who knows, there may be one of your grandchildren among them!

  • You at 13 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    Oh snap—this is the last week of your first trimester! You’re entering into a whole new world.

    Morning sickness. It has eased up considerably, or disappeared completely, for about 50% of mamas. I hope that includes you!

    Extreme fatigue. That’s getting better for most mamas as well. I hope you’re among them.

    Sex aversion. You may even feel like having sex again. Yes, seriously. While some women may feel self-conscious about their changing bodies, your partner is all over it.

    If you’re anything like me, you're wondering what’s around the corner. Here is info on second trimester tests to help you decide which ones are right for you.

    Is A Birth Center Right For You? 💡

    Is a Birth Center Right for You Mama Natural pregnancy childbirth

    When I was thinking about where I wanted to give birth, it was kinda like the Goldilocks tale…

    I knew that I didn’t want to give birth at home. As beautiful as it sounds, we lived in a small urban condo that didn’t have a lot of open space or accessories like big bathtubs, birthing bars, or stools.

    But, I also didn’t want a sterile, intervention-friendly hospital. Fluorescent lights, hard tables, and stirrups didn’t quite sound appealing.

    That’s when I landed on my decision for a birth center. It was just right… It had some of the comforts of home, but with the resources of a hospital.

    A birth center proved to be a great choice for me! Is it right for you? Read this post about birth centers to find out.
