The Pregnancy - Week 13

You may be inquisitive to know what will happen in the 13th week of pregnancy. This could be the week you would be sharing the good news with all your friends if you have not already shared yet.  Some women may begun to feel baby’s kicks in the 13th week of pregnancy. If you don't feel anything yet, don't worry...  Every pregnant woman is different and their experiences can also differ.

Some Women may feel the baby movements very soon and some women may not feel the movements for a long time, there is nothing to worry as long as the baby is growing well. You may now start feeling better and all the symptoms that had bothered you during the first three months like vomiting, breast pain and increased frequency of urination may actually come down this week.

The baby may be beginning to look human-like and baby’s hands and feet will be seen well and baby’s eyelids are also formed. The baby may also be covered by smooth hair all over the body. This hair is called Lanugo and this helps in keeping the baby warm and is shed before the birth of the baby.
