Pregnancy - Week 13

Ladies, enter the exciting second trimester.

This trimester starts with getting a face: the facial muscles starting to work, the eyes have moved into their proper place underneath the forehead and the ears have moved alongside the eyes, from the neck level. The jaws are completely formed and the palate closes up this week unifying the front of the mouth with the back of it.

Your baby is getting heavier by the day. He is now around 55 grams and measures around 11 cm.

By now, your bump should start to get noticeable. Don't worry if it doesn't though. As long as your midwife confirms everything's going well, no need to worry about anything else. However, maternity wardrobe is one of those special little things associated with such a big thing as having a baby.
