Foetus at 13 weeks
“Hang on!” I hear you cry, “Didn’t that last week pass just a little too quickly?”
You’d be forgiven for thinking I’m jumping the gun a little here, but according to the scan I had yesterday, I am now 13 weeks and 4 days pregnant with a revised Estimated Due Date of 27 September, so I’m skipping ahead to the next developmental stage in my ongoing pregnancy log (I’ll post later on about the actual scan, which was WAY cool!) .
Some interesting facts about being 13 weeks pregnant:
- Tadpole is now about 3 inches long from crown to rump (so there’s been an inch of growth over a single week!)
- The unique fingerprints are already in place (so, no life of crime for Tadpole!)
- If Tadpole is a girl, then she will already have about 2 million eggs in her ovaries (although this will drop to around 200,000 by the time she’s 17)
I’m not getting as much nausea now and am not quite so tired, although I still feel that I tire very quickly. Still looking forward to the energy boost I’ve been told to expect!
