13 weeks

Hello Second Trimester!

It's so nice to meet you. I'm hoping you're a little more kind than the first trimester. Right before we met, you busted the zipper on a pair of my jeans and I'm now having to officially wear maternity pants. I've also gone up a couple of bra sizes and had to invest in a new one. If you have any mercy on me, you'll continue to subside my hunger and provide me with a little more energy and motivation so I can get back into the gym. I look forward  to spending these next 15 weeks with you.

Yours truly,


from babycenter.com

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

I know they say "shrimp" to give us an idea of how long the bay is now, but we've been using fruits and veggies as examples. I prefer sticking with those. Another site referred to the bay as a large peach now.

and this is what a second trimester bellah looks like:
