I reached week 13 in my pregnancy! Do you know what that means? I am in my second trimester, and yep things are coming along just great. Well, not that great all the time. I am still tired throughout my days, but at least my morning sickness has almost come to a hault. All I need is REST!
I would like to update everyone with the fetal development of my baby at week 13. At this stage in the development the vocal cords begin to form and the face is looking more human, which sounds good to me. :) The eyes are growing closer together, instead of being on the sides of the head, and the ears move into position. And most importantly the sex of the baby can be determined, but unfortunately the ultrasound cannot pick it up until week 16. The intestines begin to move further into the body, the liver begins to secrete bile and the pancreas begins to produce insulin. It sounds like a busy week for my baby! I am so proud!
From what I hear, the second trimester is the easiest time of the pregnancy. And that's fabulous news to me! What I really want to do is celebrate the ending of my first trimester and beginning of my second, because I'm that much closer to seeing my baby.
