Topic Week 13: Farewell 1st Trimester

Fetal development in pregnancy week 13:

This is your final week in the first trimester and your little weed
continues to grow and grow and grow. Of the three trimesters, this one
has been the most important for your little one’s development. Assuming
you’ve carefully adopted a healthy diet, continue to exercise and get
ample rest, your little one is set up perfectly for even more growth
and development in tri-two! Way to go! He or she now weighs about 2.5
ounces and is roughly 3.5 inches in length. Little hairs, known as
lanugo, will start to cover their body this week, as their sense of
taste and smell are further refined. Their cozy little amniotic sac is
also increasing in size and mass as it continues to fill with more
fluid.

And how's mom doing?

Congratulations on a successful first
trimester! A lot has happened (and there’s a lot more to come). You
should be proud of your hard work and sacrifice. Giving up lattes,
soda, and wine is not easy. Even if you snuck in a few of these goodies
over the past 13 weeks, don’t dwell on it—there’s a lot The
good news is some fashion designers are realizing that being pregnant
doesn’t mean you can’t look sharp, sexy, sporty, or whatever your
particular style might be to look forward to! Besides, now is
the perfect time to rededicate yourself if you have had a few lapses.
Remember, every day and decision is an opportunity to improve your
eating and exercise habits—your baby and your body will thank you in
the long run.If you’re the planning type, you can celebrate the
beginning of your next trimester by purchasing some choice maternity
clothing to fit your elegantly evolving new shape. The good news is
some fashion designers are realizing that being pregnant doesn’t mean
you can’t look sharp, sexy, sporty, or whatever your particular style
might be. Cruise the online stores for a preview of the range of
fashion out there for pregnant women—even if the local shops are still
stuck in the nineties, you can always hit up some chi-chi online store
based out of NYC! If you’d rather wait a few more weeks (until you
really start to show) before making any purchases, then get ready to
dig out your sweat pants, over-sized t-shirts, and any other comfy
loose fitting clothes you’ve got at your disposal. At the very least,
just unbutton that top button on those pants that still “almost fit”.
Come on, you’re pregnant! This is definitely not the time to suffer for
fashion
