MORE INFORMATION ON 13 WEEKS OF GESTATION
At 13 weeks of gestation, your baby may already be 7.4 cm from head to bottom and, if she is a girl, she already has some eggs being produced so that they can be stored throughout her life. In due course, they will be released every menstrual period.
His fetal development makes his sexual organ more prominent and although it is not possible to distinguish objectively, you can get an idea by ultrasound and maybe it can become a very fun game with the family , playing to guess the sex of the baby!
This week, the baby’s neck will be better developed, which will cause him to be able to move his head from side to side already supporting the weight of the head, which is still slightly larger than the rest of the body. With 13 weeks of pregnancy the fingers start to get the right shape and your thumbs are much bigger than the rest of the fingers.
The hands and feet are already fully formed and now the stiffness of the muscles and joints of the entire body is started. The central nervous system is already complete , but it will mature and develop completely until the baby’s first year of life.
His 13-week-old urinary bladder already works normally, as he drinks amniotic fluid every 30 minutes it is normal for him to eliminate it through the urine. And yes, do not be alarmed, he takes the same liquid that pee! However, this liquid is filtered from time to time by the placenta.
How is Mom Feeling …
Now you have officially entered the 2nd quarter ! In the 13 weeks of pregnancy and, in most cases, about 99%, the risk of pregnancy has passed. Enjoy everything, despite having already lost countless favorite pants and maybe even some blouses due to the growth of the belly. In some women, pregnancy is already evident, in others, they may appear to be just weight gain. But in one way or another showing off your belly makes you the most beautiful woman in the world!
Unwanted symptoms such as nausea and morning sickness start to disappear when you arrive at 13 weeks. In some cases it can persist until the end of pregnancy, but few women experience it. The sinus and belly veins become more prominent at this stage, so don’t be alarmed !!
The intake of calcium-rich foods should be doubled during this period of 13 weeks of pregnancy. Since it will be necessary for the development of the baby’s bones, which at this stage begins to happen. Include foods that contain milk in your menu, such as cheeses and yoghurts or even a good broccoli salad that are rich in calcium, as well as very tasty.
With 13 weeks of gestation, your belly will be rounder than the previous week and your desire to show the world that you are generating a life is more and more intense. The realization of feeling a baby growing inside you is inexplicable and the anxiety of holding him is growing stronger.
Take advantage of the quiet days to take care of yourself, do some shopping and take care of the layette, doing everything calmly and tranquility will ensure that study is prepared and the way I want it when the day of delivery arrives. Are you feeling special and unique? This is the feeling of the joy of generating, enjoy every moment!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
