12 weeks of pregnancy

Things change quickly at 12 weeks of pregnancy. You're in the first trimester (we know, finally!), which means your hormones are likely to decrease things a bit, hopefully making you feel less pregnant. It also means you may be ready to share your pregnancy news with family and friends. So exciting!

How size is your baby at 12 weeks?

At 12 weeks of pregnancy, baby is as big as a plum. The average fetus at 12 weeks is about 2.1 inches long and 0.49 ounces. Now that baby has just about all his important organs, his main job is to keep 
growing. Go for it baby go for it!

12 weeks of pregnancy is how many months?

At twelve weeks of pregnancy, you are in the last week of your third month of pregnancy. In other
words, you will be three months pregnant by the end of week 12 of your pregnancy.

12 weeks of pregnancy symptoms

Here's the good news about the symptoms of a 12-week pregnancy: morning sickness and fatigue may start to subside a little earlier, as your hormones begin to calm down. The bad news? Headaches and dizziness can replace them. We'll make that trade-off. Here's more information on what happens to your body at 12 weeks of pregnancy:

  • Increased discharge. This clear discharge may seem strange, but it's normal and has an important purpose: to protect your vagina from infection. But if you have a yellow, greenish, pink or brown discharge during pregnancy week 12, call your doctor immediately. These colors could be a sign of infection or premature labor.
  • Spotting. Staining or bleeding during pregnancy at 12 weeks could be a concern, or it may not be at all. For example, your cervix is more sensitive during pregnancy, so just having sex can cause light bleeding that is harmless. If you notice or bleed, tell your doctor. If the bleeding is accompanied by cramping or heavy flow, it is an urgent call.
  • Headaches. These can begin to intensify around week 12 of pregnancy. Headaches can be caused by hormonal changes, low blood sugar, dehydration, lack of sleep or stress. To cope, pay attention to what might trigger your headaches and try to avoid these culprits. If you notice a drastic increase in headaches or a type of headache that you have never experienced before (such as a migraine) or if your headaches are accompanied by other strange symptoms, tell your doctor.
  • Dizziness. Whoa! Hormonal changes and changes in blood pressure can cause dizziness around the week of pregnancy 12. You can help prevent dizziness by eating regularly and drinking plenty of water. Sit or lie down if you feel dizzy or lightheaded and tell your doctor about any serious episodes.

If you're 12 weeks pregnant with twins, you may still be suffering from morning sickness, while your unwed mothers-to-be begin to see the light at the end of the nausea tunnel. Be aware that things will probably get better soon.

12 weeks pregnant belly

At 12 weeks, your pregnant belly is an official bump! In other words, it probably becomes visible now. This is one of the reasons many moms-to-be start telling others that they're waiting around 12 weeks. (Of course, if you're 12 weeks pregnant with twins, you could have been showing for weeks now, obviously because you've doubled the baby there!)

If you haven't already done so, start taking pictures of your pregnant belly at 12 weeks. Trust us, after pregnancy, you want a memory of how much your body has changed throughout the nine months.

12 weeks pregnant ultrasound

At 12 weeks, your fetus is almost finished developing its body systems and important body parts, which means it needs to be bigger and more mature from now on. Yes, the baby is about to enter the growth and maturation phase, during which organs and tissues will grow and develop rapidly.
At 12 weeks, the baby opens and closes his curly fingers and toes. And baby's brain is developing rapidly!
The baby is now developing reflexes - if you pierce your 12-week pregnant belly while looking at a baby on an ultrasound, you'll probably see movement. If you're 12 weeks pregnant with twins, your tandem is developing at a similar rate to singleton babies at 12 weeks. Later, they'll have a slightly slower growth rate.

You may have another prenatal exam before the end of your first trimester. Whether or not you have a 12-week ultrasound may depend on your doctor's preference and perhaps on what your insurance covers. If you get an ultrasound right now, you'll notice that you can see your 12-week pregnant fetus more clearly this time, which may make you want to start spreading the news you've been waiting for.

Itching to know if it's a boy or a girl? We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but on a 12-week pregnancy ultrasound, sex is usually not revealed. Between 12 and 13 weeks is the earliest a boy or girl could be seen on an ultrasound, and anatomy is still difficult to establish with certainty. 

Your OB or technician is much more likely to see the sex of the baby on an anatomy scan in the middle of the pregnancy, which will happen around week 20. However, if you've had DNA blood tests to detect chromosomal abnormalities, get these results-if you want to know, it's!

Around 12-week pregnancy, you may want to know more about your baby's health, so you may want to have genetic testing to determine the risk of birth defects or other problems. This can be a little scary - and confusing - so be sure to ask your OB lots of questions, and be aware that an A-OK baby is much more likely than anything else.
