189 Days to go!

Well here it is…the first day of the second trimester. It’s still too soon and to know if the baby is a boy or girl but I’m hoping to get a little hint at my next appointment at the end of April.

At this point your baby looks like a tiny infant with fully formed limbs and fingers and toes. Your body is also beginning to swell and grow as your baby begins to take up more and more space. Your uterus may even pop outside of your pelvic cavity a bit and alleviate the urge to urinate frequently.

# The fetus has grown to about 3 inches (8cm) long.
# Weight approximately 1 ounce (25 grams).
# Bone is beginning to replace cartilage and the ribs are appearing.
# The nose and chin are well defined.
# Movements can be measured.
# The child will begin to learn to suck its thumb.
# The child can open and close its mouth.
