How your baby grows – month 3

insideYour baby:

By the end of the third month, your baby is about 2 ½ to 3 inches long and weighs about one ounce. Your baby’s fingernails and toenails are formed. Your baby’s mouth has 20 buds that become baby teeth. Fine hairs begin to form on your baby’s skin. You can hear your baby’s heartbeat for the first time. (Ask your provider to let you listen.)

Your body:

You may still feel tired and have morning sickness. You may have headaches and get lightheaded or dizzy, If these symptoms don’t go away, tell your health care provider. (Talk to your provider before you take any medicine for a headache.) You may have gained 2 to 4 pounds by now and your clothes may begin to feel tight.

    I love your simple summaries of what to expect with our bodies during each month of pregnancy! I think month 3 is also an important time to start researching options for cord blood. I have been using for reference and have found it very beneficial. Love your blog 🙂

    Thanks Shelly. Researching options for cord blood is a good idea, but it’s important for women to know that there still are a number of concerns about cord blood banking. Read our information, too:
