12 Weeks.

Ok..I'm updating again :)

I'm already at the end of the first trimester. The queasiness is slowly subsiding, though I can still feel it every now and then. I'm already showing some tummy :D! I can't fit on my regular pants already, that's why, I'm thinking of buying a bellaband or whatever that will help me still use my pants because I can't fit into a regular maternity pants.

My next OB check up will on Sept. 5. And as for the little peanut, here's what babycenter says about it now.

Your baby's face is beginning to look more human (Medline 2009), even though she is only about 5.4cm long from her crown to her rump and weighs slightly less than 14g. Her eyes, which started out on the sides of her head, have moved closer together. Her ears are almost in their normal position on the side of her head (Hill 2009; Visembryo 2006). Her liver is making bile and her kidneys are secreting urine into her bladder.

Your baby squirms if your belly is prodded, although you cannot yet feel movement. Fetal nerve cells have been multiplying rapidly and the neurological connections in her brain (synapses) are forming. Your baby has acquired more reflexes: touching the palms makes the fingers close, touching the soles of the feet makes the toes curl down and touching the eyelids makes the eye muscles clench (Medline 2009).

Your midwife can now feel the top of your uterus (womb), also known as the fundus, low in your belly. As you enter the second trimester, you may find yourself donning looser, less restrictive clothing. Soon you won't be able to fit into your old clothes any more.

You may now find that once the sickness feeling has passed, your appetite returns. Find out how to eat well over the next few weeks.
