Pregnancy Updates: Week 14

It’s been awhile since I have blogged about my pregnancy updates. So now, I am showing you some personal stuff. Now, I am already 14 weeks pregnant and this is how my tummy looks:

According to www.baby2see.com, at fourteen weeks, these are the developments of my baby inside me:

Your baby now is peeing into the amniotic fluid round itself as well as making breathing movements. With the effect of hormones, the boys now have a prostate gland. For girls, the ovaries move from the abdomen into the pelvis. During this week of pregnancy the head and eyebrow hair develops.

Your child’s bones are getting harder and stronger by the day. Your baby’s skin is very transparent still. Lanugo (very fine hair) covers the baby’s body and will continue to grow until 26 weeks gestational age – Generally this will be shed prior to birth. Its purpose is to help protect baby’s skin while in all that water.

As your baby grows, your uterus and placenta are also growing. Six weeks ago, your uterus weighed 5 ounces (140 g). Now, it weighs about 8.75 ounces (250g). The amount of amniotic fluid around the baby is also increasing. There is now about 7.5 ounces (250ml) of fluid. You can easily feel your uterus about 3 inches (7.6cm) below your bellybutton.

Your baby is 3.42 inches (8.7cm) long and weighs about 1.52 ounces (43 grams)

Since I am gaining weight, I think I need to buy some MBT shoes to support my body. My sandals are about to give up already. 😆

Did you know that you can measure your belly to find out if something is going wrong. At 27 weeks pregnant, the belly should measure 25-29 cm (or 10-11.5 inches).

Labor is a totally different experience and you have to go through that while you are pregnant. Braxton hicks contractions, breathing techniques, lamazze classes, parenting classes, breastfeeding classes, leaking breasts, constipation. 😳
