12 Weeks pregnant.

About baby this week:

Your baby’s face is changing. Her eyes, which started out on the sides of her head, have moved closer together and her ears are almost in their final position.

Now is the time when the tissues and organs that have already formed in your baby’s body grow rapidly and mature. Your baby’s intestines, which start out as a large swelling in the umbilical cord, will begin moving into her belly cavity about now.

Your baby is about 5.4cm long from her crown to her rump and weighs slightly less than 14g. The big news this week is that your baby’s reflexes are becoming more honed. She’ll squirm if you prod your belly, although you probably can’t feel her moving around yet. Fetal nerve cells have been multiplying rapidly and the neurological connections in her brain (synapses) are forming. She can close her fingers, curl her toes and clench her eye muscles.
