13 Weeks Pregnant

The 13 Weeks pregnancy is the last week of your first trimester, and your risk of miscarriage is now much lower than earlier in pregnancy. Next week marks the beginning of your second trimester, a time of relative comfort for many women who see early pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness and fatigue subside.

You will also probably start feeling remarkably better in the upcoming weeks. Instead of feeling tired all the time and nauseous, you may find that you have a newfound sense of health and vigor.

By 13 weeks pregnant, you will want to wear loose fitting clothing. You still might not be big enough to fit into maternity clothes, but chances are your favorite pair of jeans are no longer your favorite simply because they do not fit as well.

Your breasts will continue to change throughout your pregnancy week by week. In addition to the darkening of your areolas, you might start noticing the veins in your breasts are more prominent. Some women also start developing larger benign bumps on their breasts during pregnancy. The lumpy bumps surrounding the areola are glands that will grow and develop as your pregnancy continues.

During pregnancy week 13 your baby is 2.9 inches long and weighs up to .8 ounces. Though your baby is significantly larger, he is still pretty tiny. Fortunately, there is plenty of room to expand in your uterus as you follow your pregnancy week by week!

By the end of pregnancy week 13, your baby looks like a tiny yet fully formed baby. While your baby’s head is still quite large, his body is starting to catch up. Your baby’s eyes are starting to move closer together by pregnancy 13 weeks. Up until this point in time, they rested closely along the sides of the head. Your baby’s intestines are also moving further into the body, and your baby’s tiny pancreas is starting to produce insulin, which will be vital for regulating your baby’s sugar levels later in life!
