Week 13

As your first trimester comes to a close, your baby has reaced the zie of a peach, about 3 inches long. Your baby’s head is now about half the size of his or her crown to rump lenght, but that cute little body is picking up steam and will continue growing overtime (at birth, your baby will be one-quarter head, three-quarters body). Meanwhile, your baby’s intestines, which have been growing inside the umbilical cord, are now starting their trek to their permanent position in your baby’s abdomen. Also developing this week: your baby’s vocal cords.

So that’s it, one-third of the way there.
