I wanted to start something new on this site..I wanted to document each month milestone and write about what was going on with the baby.. I missed my 12 week mark on Monday, but I thought better late than never, LOL.
At 12 weeks, I am at the end of my 1st trimester. The baby is about the size of a tennis ball and weighs nearly an ounce. The tiny, unique fingerprints are now in place. At your next doctor appointment you will be able to hear the baby's heartbeat. Your placenta will take over the production of hormones around this time.
